The Grammy-winning singer's confirmation about the residency comes months after rumors swirled online. She said in an interview that the show will feature her greatest hits as well as new material.

"I'm definitely ready," she said, adding that she's training five hours each day.

Tickets for "Britney: Piece of Me" go on sale Sept. 20. Prices range from $59 to $179.

The 31-year-old Spears also released a new song, "Work (Expletive)," this week. The song is from her upcoming eighth album, which will include songs about her ex-fiance Jason Trawick.

"They suck," she said. "Breakups suck."
