Britney Spears Is Getting Paid $15 Million To Be A Judge On X Factor. Britney. Spears. What?
Posted April 13, 2012on:
1) She hasn’t sung live a day in her life.
2) She can’t even get married without her Daddy and future husband being legally bound to her as her co-conservators.
3) I’m pretty sure she was declared legally insane like 3 years ago.
Listen. I love Britney Spears as much as the next person (I seriously wore white eyeliner in middle school because of her and own VHS tapes of her concerts so I could learn her chorepgprahy and then perform it for my family. True story), but is Simon Cowell out of his goddamn mind??
$15 MILLION?!?!? I’d do that shit for FREE!!!
A rep for the X Factor would neither confirm nor deny whether Spears was even being considered. A Fox rep had no comment. However a production insider tells E! News that “this is an exciting time for [Britney]. It’ll be a fun project and she is welcoming the chance to mentor up-and-coming artists. She loves the idea of helping emerging talent get the recognition they deserve and is really looking forward to being on the show.”
“She gets on very well with Simon. He has worked hard at persuading her to start this new chapter in her career. She is an icon, and the perfect example of what having the X Factor means.”
They got rid of the crazy and awful (Paula Abdul and Nicole “I’m going to break a little girl with no bathroom’s heart” Scherzinger) and brought in Britney. Can she even say a sentence without it being pre-taped is my only question??
I think she’ll have great advice for the contestants.
But seriously… I’d work for free.
