Britney Spears will make more money than you come winter.

She may even make more than me.

According to TMZ, Spears' upcoming residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas will earn her $310,00 per show. Which means that her two-year-contract for 48 shows will bring her -- carry the three, multiply this over and add this -- a lot of money.

It actually comes to nearly $15 million per year, the website reported. An official announcement concerning details of Spears' residency hasn't been made, though TMZ said the fun starts in December.

Projected sales per show come to $508,514, meaning Spears will be earning more than 60 percent of the revenue. And why not? She's the one who's going to be up there dancing with snakes and kissing Madonna.

TMZ said producers are shooting for a "cool, hip club-like show" and presented some mock-ups of what the theater will look like.

Though lucrative, Spears still hasn't reached Celine Dion country yet. Dion does 70 shows a year and makes $476,000 per show.

Now excuse me while I go sign my kids up for singing lessons.
