Yesterday on “Good Morning America,” Britney Spears arrived in a helicopter, hovering above a sea of fans holding cards that formed a 10-story likeness of the pop icon. So what if she arrived having just puked, wearing no shirt and too sick to do a proper interview? The point was that she had an important announcement to make and she needed to do it in style. That’s right … Britney Jean Spears is coming to Vegas, bitches! After rumors and suspicious tweets, the pop star confirmed that she’ll be doing a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Sin City. “Britney: Piece of Me” will debut on December 27th. Obviously, what The Frisky wants for Christmas is a group of front-row tickets to her first show. SANTA … PLEASE!? Or Brit’s publicist?? Once we heard the news, we immediately started casting, choreographing and sequencing her Vegas extravaganza. In case anyone on her team is reading, here are a few of our initial requests for “Piece of Me,” along with some of our favorite Britney GIFs. Just because. [Washington Post] Keep reading »

whole world Frisky office has been waiting on bated breath for details about Prince Harry’s Las Vegas romp with (dare I say it?!?) a commoner. Forty-year-old blonde (natch) beautician Carrie Reichert is the lucky lady Harry hooked up with after stripping his clothes off in his $8,000 Vegas hotel room this August. Now the British-born San Diego resident is ready to spill the Marmite, er, beans in a 500-page tell-all. Keep reading »
I have a love/hate relationship with Las Vegas. I hate the roving bands of douchebags, the smell of stale cigarette smoke, the rampant objectification of women, and the baffling popularity of Ed Hardy trucker hats. I love the sequined dresses, the free drinks, the “Star Wars”-themed slot machines, and the awesome concerts. After spending another weekend in Las Vegas recently, I thought it was time to compile a list of some of my favorite things to do in Sin City. Read on for my Las Vegas lowdown, and as always, please feel free to share other ideas and suggestions in the comments! Keep reading »
Las Vegas’ latest marketing campaign aims to portray the city as a kind of glistening gay utopia where straight people stick out like a poorly dressed sore thumb. The slogan “Everyone is welcome, even straight people” is illustrated in a new series of ads that insert a painfully frumpy heterosexual couple into glamorous scenes of gay clubs and pool parties. Obviously the ads are leaning heavily on superficial stereotypes both gay and straight, but I couldn’t help laughing at the way white sneakers and khakis stand out in a sea of Speedos and stilettos. What do you think of this campaign? Clever? Offensive? Funny? Just plain dumb? Check out two more of the ads after the jump, and share your thoughts in the comments! Keep reading »
Last week, we heard little whispers here and there that the nude photos from Prince Harry’s wild Vegas romp were not the whole story. A British publicist said he’d been approached by two women who claimed to have more photos and even video. Now the rumors are reaching a fever pitch with a source telling Radar Online there exists “video of Harry partying naked with women in the Las Vegas hotel room … There have been very quiet inquiries into how much the video is worth.” Keep reading »
Prince Harry is so “disappointed” in himself (uh huh) but the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is more upset at Harry’s chucklehead party buddies who broke the official code of “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Somewhere, Paris Hilton is pouting that she never inspired her very own Vegas tourism ad campaign.

Food, sex and video gaming: it’s the ideal trifecta for any run-of-the-mill male and Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas is making it a reality. The Joystixx (yes, that’s really the name) is 21+ and calls itself the “best new place to score in Vegas.” Joystixx opened last month in the infamous chain’s casino, offering “classic arcade games, drink-serving gamer girls, and private video game console booths,” according to the gamer blog Kotaku. The Hooters “gamer gals” will undoubtedly have showgirl figures — but spending your vacay in Vegas in a private video game console booth? Especially one that’s open until 3 a.m. every night? You can do better than that. [Kotaku via Hooters Casino Hotel]
- Prince Harry did Vegas, baby! Hot Ginge hit up the Wynn Las Vegas Tryst Nightclub, parting at a VIP table and dancing with hot girls all night. I don’t suppose any Frisky readers happened to have been in Vegas this weekend, too, and maybe caught a glimpse? [People]
- Was Ashton Kutcher’s dumb tweet about Joe Paterno getting fired from Penn State football the straw that broke the camel’s back for Demi Moore? Hollywood Life seems to think so. I’m more inclined to think it was cheating that did them in, not Twitter. [HollywoodLife.com]
- But let’s not forget the real victim of the Ashton/Demi cheating drama: Brittney Jones, his former hookup, who says she feels vindicated by Demi deciding to divorce. When Brittney allegedly hooked up with Ashton last year, it was heavily denied by he and his people. [TMZ] Keep reading »
I usually don’t find myself cheering for lawsuits, but this one is an exception: a jilted bride from Chicago is suing her ex-fiancé for the costs of the wedding after he cheated on her at his Las Vegas during his bachelor party and then called the wedding off when he got caught.
Pardon my ’90s expression, but “You go, girl!” Keep reading »
