Fans of pop princess and Planet Hollywood headliner Britney Spears are a zealous bunch, to say the least.
They keep begging me for more inside news on the “Britney: Piece of Me” headliner at Axis at Planet Hollywood whenever I toss them a gem, then berate me, sometimes calling me a liar, when I don’t have more exclusives.
Two weeks ago, I Wicked Whispered the possibility of Britney appearing on the live, three-hour telecast of the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at our new T-Mobile Arena on May 22.
Ever since, fans have blasted me for not telling them if it was true, if it was confirmed, then because I could only say that negotiations were continuing, they really turned up the heat on me saying they’d learned from Britney’s staff that it was an untrue rumor.
I’m not being a smart aleck, but let me just tell all her fans that my sources are impeccably reliable and far more revealing to me than you, so don’t work yourself into such a frenzy.
There’s a right time and place for you to get the facts. Sometimes here at Vegas DeLuxe, we know news far in advance before we can release it. Here’s a perfect example:
Expect a big announcement Monday from Billboard Music Awards producers that will make you all happy. I know what’s coming but am sworn to secrecy until then. Britney’s fans will be very happy, and our scoops do come true.
Now be patient and wait until Monday’s big surprise. Meantime, in addition to the Justin Bieber and Pink news that we posted Wednesday comes word that Demi Lovato will perform “Cool for the Summer” at the awards and Nick Jonas and Tove Lo their new single “Close.”

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
