Britney Spears is back (bitch). In addition to kicking off her insanely choreographed Las Vegas residency today, the '90s pop princess has also opened a boutique, where fans can snap up all the usual Britney-branded Sin City souvenirs, like mugs, keychains, tees and presumably, shot glasses.
Our sister site in Vegas reports the shop is just across the way from Axis, the concert hall that'll be home to the singer's Piece of Me concert series. In a "leaked" clip of her I Am Britney Jean documentary, the AllSaints-loving Disney grad revealed her 100-minute performance will be a "career retrospective" featuring 24 songs, 14 backup dancers and a four-piece band.
"The 32-year-old mother also told E! news that the City of Angels may not remain her home turf. "If I happen to have another baby or something like that, I'd probably move back to Louisiana," she says. "I miss the way of life, how everything is really simple. There's no traffic like there is in LA. It's really nice."
