Britney Spears

In Talks To

Headline in Vegas!

Britney Spears is in "serious talks" to move to Las Vegas and headline a "Celine" type show -- TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... Britney and her people are talking about establishing residency for the singer in Sin City and are also in talks with one of the hotels to do a "big, nightly show."

We're told the negotiations are with one of the CAESARS group properties, and they have "been wooing her for awhile."

As we first reported ... Britney has cleared the decks by quitting "X Factor" and is in the studio recording her 8th album.

Our sources say there is "a lot of interest" in Britney's camp over a Vegas move, and -- obviously -- a lot of interest on the Vegas side of headlining a show.

Celine Dion scored nearly $100 mil a year for her gig.  Our sources think Britney could do even better.

Most people like Elton have many many songs to entertain fans with. Britney had a few teeny bopper songs and can only lip synch to those. I wouldn't pay five dollars to see her "live."

Britney doesn't "perform" anymore. Lip syncing and walking around the stage stiff as a board is not entertaining. I have never understood why she stopped doing any real dancing onstage.

Why not? She will have the lip-syncing down to a science. Change outfits and walk up and down the stage for a buttload of cash.

How lucky for us her in LV. Celine is more worth the outrageous ticket prices though.

For someone with Britney's recent issues, this could be the best possible avenue: a set schedule each day; no need for travel; a stable homelife for kids; ridiculous income compared to touring; regular access to positive supports. I'm not sure that Britney has the back catalog to make this successful for her, but if she's as talented truly as she's supposed to be, she can build that catalog and record albums on her terms to support her shows. Besides, she has the supports largely in place to keep her life and her career on track. She's being looked after.

Celine is a sweetheart and talented and has made some great music and songs, but you can only hear "All By Myself" and "Heart Will Go On" so many times before you want to ram forks into your ears repeatedly

I predict she has her breakdown between her third and fifth show. This pitiful poor woman is seriously sick in the head (just look at those eyes: she is imprisoned by anti-psychotic drugs!). When people start booing and walking out because of her crappy performances, she will panic, and start screaming and crying ha ha. She'll be shavin' her head in the dressing room before anyone can stop her!!! I can't wait.....

I'm not sure that Brit can draw in the crowds in Vegas, let's face it to pay the big bucks to watch some dimwit lip synch, not to mention the fact that Brit's followers aren't old enough to be in Vegas...stop building this women up to something
