November 5th is now officially Britney Spears Day!

Are we hearing this right? There’s now a Britney Spear’s holiday? Hot damn. Does this mean we get a day off to spend in our favourite velour sweats while mumbling Toxic to ourselves?  Not quite. (Fine, whatever. We do that every Sunday anyway)

No, it seems November 5th won’t feel very different to us girls here in Ireland, but Las Vegas will be tearin’ it up Brit-style on that day. Caesers Entertainment officially announced yesterday that Britney will be receiving the key to the Las Vegas Strip on the 5th and that the first one hundred people who can prove that they’re also named Britney will win two tickets to the Louisiana singer’s concert at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Not bad!

The 32-year-old singer , who will be presented with her official proclamation by Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak, tweeted her excitement, posting: “ What an honour!! Can’t wait to celebrate with you, Vegas. See y’all there??” As if she has to ask.

Due to the success of Britney’s Piece of Me residency, the star has recently been on the receiving end of a fairly hefty pay rise- the global megastar now earns one million dollars a week.

No biggie.
