After filming two seasons straight, at least one member of Jersey Shore is going to come staggering out of the beach house with a job lined up. Pauly D’s Britney Spears tour gig has him opening for the singer during six dates this fall. “I am so excited to be performing on the Britney Spears Femme Fatale tour,” Pauly said in a statement. “Britney is one of my favorite performers and certainly one of this generation’s most influential artists. It’s an amazing platform to connect with my fans around the country.” It’s probably also nice not to be trapped with seven other people in a home filled with simmering rage and the smell of old gym bags, though yes, Britney is seriously amazing.
Pauly’s first show will be August 17 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where hopefully he won’t panic at the thought of seeing thousands of people he doesn’t spent 24 hours a day with. As for playing Spears’ songs prior to her performance, Pauly scoffs “A DJ should not play the artist’s songs at her concert ’cause she has to perform these songs. I’m not going to be playing any Britney before she performs; maybe after. I’ll let her perform, let her shine ’cause it’s her night.” Hmmm, no Britney and no computer for the past nine months…let’s hope “We No Speak Americano” has enough remixes to make this work.
