Britney Spears has officially started her Las Vegas take-over. After months of hype and anticipation, the singer debuted her Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, last night. Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino's AXIS theater was packed with fans and celebrities as Britney performed 24 of her biggest hits. With the first show completed, critics and fans are giving their take on the 90-miniute spectacle.
Britney is probably best known for her dance ability. Critics have always praised the dance efforts in her music videos and live performance. Some of the routines have even become iconic. But does the 32-year-old and mother of two still got? So far so good. She has 14 back-up dancers who showcase their abs and physicality throughout the show. Yet, Britney hangs with them. She even recycles some of the moves from previous music videos. Britney has even claimed this is the most dancing she's done in her career.
Last night, December 27, Britney Spears launched her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, appropriately titled, Piece of Me, and many of her celebrity fans were in attendance to show their support. Among them was pop's current most talked about artist, Miley Cyurs, who gushed about her love and admiration for Ms. Spears in her MTV documentary, Miley :The Movement.
After the show, Miley headed to Breacher's Madhouse where she shared a booth with Katy Perry, among a few others. One of those being none other than Kellan Lutz, her recently rumored fling. However, not so much was shown in the way of physical affection aside from the starlet giving Lutz a brief kiss on the cheek. Most of her time went to her assistant and BFF, Cheyne Thomas, who she was seen grinding on and even kissing.
The countdown to 2014 has officially begun, with only a few remaining days left of 2013. Before we ring in the New Year, we needed to look back at the most mindblowing, memorable, shocking pop culture stories that shaped 2013. We narrowed it down to five pop culture icons of 2013 who's made the biggest impressions in this past year, alone. Some celebrities who made it on our list won't come as a big shocker to most, as their careers alone spoke volumes of their achievements, but you'll still be surprised at who made our list.
Our number five spot goes to Prince George, not Kate Middleton, although she does deserve immense credit for giving birth to our fifth pop culture icon. The birth of Prince George was followed closely by tabloids everywhere, ever since he was only a fetus in Kate's womb. The anticipation for his birth was conveyed almost symbolically, as many mirrored Prince William and Kate's firstborn son to Princess Diana's own birth of her two sons. It was like watching history repeat itself, as many were clearly nostalgic over Princess Diana's own looming iconic status within the royal family. Born July 22, 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis was the apple of the entire nation's eye, as well as being welcomed by world news reporters everywhere. He was born at St. Mary's Hospital in London where Princess Diana also gave birth to Prince William and Prince Harry.
Before everyone and their mother's start judging Miley Cyrus and Cara Delevingne for this photo, there could be many possibilities behind this. You know, two girls, possibly BFFs, getting a little naughty for the camera as someone yells, "Pictures!" or just simply girls who both have a wild streak are showing their fun personalities on camera.
Either way, let's all remind ourselves that this is how some girls have fun. Maybe a little too close for others, but this racy photo seems to be taken in good faith. And let's be real here, are we even at all surprised that Miley is pulling this off?
Both girls are at the sweet age of 21, and they seem to be living the life. We can only speculate that this is what happens when a world-class supermodel is hanging out with America's most controversial popstar. Yay or Nay?

Five intense seasons filled with edge -of -your- seat drama came to an end this year for fans of Breaking Bad. We watched as Walter White transformed from sickly, dying cancer patient to badass druglord. More than 10 million households tuned in to watch the finale, which portrayed the heroic fall of our favorite meth kingpin and still left us with a bunch of burning questions. Great writing indeed Vince Gilligan.
Zombies seemed to be the stars of both television shows and films this past year. But no one did the zombie apocalypse better than The Walking Dead. This past season was filled with a bunch of action, from the loss of some our favorite characters who turned, to the return of the Governor, to the tragic and gruesome assassination of Hershel. The mid-season finale, full of a generous amount of blood and carnage, left us cringing and anxious for what's to come in January.
