While most of us thought it was the end of the road for Britney Spears after Planet Hollywood in Vegas hinted it was her last show it turns out she signed a new contract with the Monte Carlo Resort across the street. This is a very huge deal for her as her only other Las Vegas contract option was signing with the Bunny Ranch. Sin City is where starpower goes to die. The living dead A-list zombie Spears’ career isn’t seeing a revival anytime soon. The shows that managed to sell out were the work of the promotion foot soldiers outside of casinos asking “hey what are you tonight.” Tourist are either guilt tripped in a Spears show or a timeshare. Neither are great options. More shows just means more millions for Britney to spend on massages. She’s earned it after all these years. She should be alright as long as she stays away from Massage Envy. Unless she actually desires be drafted to team #MeToo. Then and only then can she fetch more than her Monte Carlo contract without lifting a finger. Every woman is entitled to lucrative lawsuits and their own late-night TV show when they never explicitly gave consent to the surprise happy ending.

On New Year's Day, the dancer shared a video on YouTube announcing his resignation from the all-male troupe Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo despite receiving media attention, and winning the Dancing Times Award for Best Male Dancer at the 17th National Dance Awards. While the ballet champion calls the gig his "dream job" and thought the company stood for "openness" and "gender freedom" (as they perform in drag), he learned it was anything but. Related: Singer Teddy Geiger Announces Transitioning In the emotional clip, Johnsey -- who thought about transitioning in 2012 -- said he was told he would "no longer be allowed to perform" if he went forward with the procedure. Chase -- who identifies as "gender queer" -- explains: "I was thinking about transitioning in 2012, and I was told that If I transition that I wouldn't no longer be allowed to perform. I would not have a performing role in the company anymore." Additionally, he claims dancers were harassed if they "look too feminine in ballet class," and "weren't allowed to wear certain things because it was too feminine." "We're being bullied for expressing our femininity and we're given ultimatums just because we don't live up to a masculine idea of what a gay man is." Ultimately, Johnsey had to "stand up for what I believe in," and strongly feels "trans people should have a place in ballet." WATCH the clip (below): [Image via Chase Johnsey/Instagram.].....»»

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle rang in the new year with an lavish getaway in France, where they were said to be "partying like tycoons." But the pair didn't exactly fly to their destination in royal style -- they flew in economy class seats like a couple of commoners! Related: Meghan's Relationship With Harry Ruled Her Out As The Next Bond Girl! On New Year's Eve, Harry and Meghan reportedly boarded the morning British Airways flight before any other passengers and headed straight to the back of the plane, right next to the rear bathrooms(!). The 33-year-old prince was apparently slumped down next to the window with a baseball hat pulled over his face. His bride-to-be was sitting next to him in a black beanie, also trying to remain unnoticed. That plan did not work. Regular passengers immediately noticed the pair, according to a source, as they were taking up three rows of economy seats on BOTHS sides of the aisle, despite only being accompanied by three "edgy and nervous" bodyguards. We get it -- you need your space! Related: Harry 'Already Told The Obamas He Wants Them At The Wedding'! While their short flight from London's Heathrow airport to Nice wasn't exactly first class, the two made up for it once landing by boarding helicopters for a 7-minute skip to Monaco's Monte Carlo. From there, the pair spent two nights in the principality and were seen boarding helicopters again on Tuesday morning. Though their trip to Monaco was kept as private as possible, thanks to a massive security detail, one source told DailyMail.com the two partied like rockstars: "Monte Carlo is party central at this time of the year and the word is that the British Royals really enjoyed themselves. What's certain is that they were partying like tycoons on New Year's Day. Fun around Monaco is never understated, and always costs a fortune." What a fancy way to kick off 2018 -- and the fancy celebrations will only continue! Now that they've returned home, Harry and Meghan are back to work planning the wedding of the year in the months leading up to their May nuptials. Rest up, you two!
