Mariah Carey Confirms Plans For Debut Las Vegas Residency

She broke the news on 'Ellen' by pretending to be a member of Caesars' housekeeping staff

Stop the presses! Mariah Carey has confirmed that — like Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and Cher before her — she will be doing a residency in Las Vegas. Inking a deal with the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, Mimi stopped by Ellen to announce her Sin City plans (the full clip will air later today — check your local listings), saying, “This is a special event for me. I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this ’cause I’m gonna be performing, this was kind of inspired by my album Number 1’s, and this is now the updated version with 18 of them.” Well, lord knows she has enough said “Number 1’s” to carry a show.

No word yet on her residency dates, but while you wait for those, you can enjoy Mimi punking Caesar’s guests by pretending to be a maid. That’s always fun.
