Britney Spears sure knows how to create a scene.

With one estimate saying 1,000 people were waiting for her, the gathering took place outside the Planet Hollywood Resort on Tuesday as the pop princess made her "official arrival" to Sin City, all in anticipation of her 2-year residency show at the Strip hotel – due to kick off on Dec. 27, just in time for the New Year's Eve crowds.

With giant pink letters bearing Britney's name adorning the steps to the casino, at least a dozen dancers from her upcoming show performed outside the hotel, amounting to a bit of a sneak peak of what to expect when her "Piece Of Me" show opens – think fire breathers, along with a dancer re-enacting Britney's notorious 2001 VMA performance with the snake and aerialists.

The Smith family presented a united front on Sunday when Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith stepped out to celebrate the 21st birthday of Will's oldest son, Trey, in Las Vegas.

The happy gathering comes days after photos surfaced of the Focus star exposing his chest with costar Margot Robbie in an on-set photo booth.

Jada, 42, laughed as her husband, 45, jokingly danced with party guests.

Surrounded by 55 people, including children Jaden, 15, and Willow, 13, the couple held hands all through dinner at Hakkasan.

"They didn't leave each other's side," a source said. "They were even dancing at one point."

Don't bother Megan Fox right now – she's busy shooting enemies and saving lives in the live-action trailer for a new game, Call of Duty: Ghosts, out Tuesday.

The trailer, titled "Epic Night Out," follows four friends as they make their way through a war zone formerly known as Las Vegas. Frank Sinatra's "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die" plays in the background of a soundtrack of gunfire.

In Call of Duty: Ghosts, gamers will immerse themselves into a new storyline, written in part by Oscar-winning screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, who wrote Traffic and Syriana. Following a devastating attack by The Federation that leaves the U.S. a wasteland, Elias Walker and his sons Hesh and Logan and Riley, a military-trained German Shepherd, embark on a series of missions that take them from the dangerous deep sea to the weightlessness of outer space to icy Antarctica.

The father of the 9-year-old Minnesota boy who last week stowed away on a Delta flight from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Las Vegas admits that the boy needs help.

"I don't have an angel, okay? I have a 9-year-old," the father told CNN affiliate WCCO. "To me, he's got a behavioral problem."

The father, who asked not to be identified (because of the boy's age, the young stowaway also has not been named publicly), told the TV station that the family has been unsuccessfully trying to get help for his son for years.

Earlier it was reported that the boy has a history of sneaking into a local waterpark and that he recently stole and crashed a vehicle.

"I miss my son," the father said of the boy who reportedly is still being held by child welfare authorities in Las Vegas. "I love my son."
