(Newser) – Lady Gaga is following in the footsteps of Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and Cher. The singer is the latest to secure a Las Vegas residency, and will be belting out tunes at the 5,200-seat MGM Park Theater at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino beginning in late 2018. She'll be making a ton of money, but exactly how much is unclear. A source tells Variety Gaga will take home more than $1 million for each of at least 74 performances over two years, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal has her doing 36 shows for $400,000 apiece. "It's been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl, I'm so overjoyed!," the singer tweeted Tuesday. (Read more Lady Gaga stories.)
