Britney Spears is on her way out of her judging stint on X Factor USA, that’s according to US Weekly.
“Britney will get the boot,” an insider tells Hot Stuff of the pop star, who joined the show in May, along with fellow newcomer Demi Lovato. “Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”
One reason? Spears’ $15 million contract, which sources say the low-energy mentor hasn’t earned. “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps,” a second insider tells Us.
Adds a third source of show co-creator Simon Cowell, who is leading the charge to axe the performer: “He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”
What? Honestly, aside from Simon, I think Britney was not bad as a mentor and a judge. She has said several badass one-liners during her stay on X Factor, like “Amazing!” or “Amazing!” or “You should have ended the show because nobody can follow that!” and a little bit more “Amazing!” but kidding aside, she was really a decent judge. If Simon wanted a “crazy” Britney then shame on him.
Maybe because the show’s ratings were lower than expected, Simon wanted yet another rerevamp. However, I don’t think firing Britney is not a good way out. Just fire Khloe Kardashian-Odom the robot instead.
