Britney Spears Quits X Factor Before They Can Fire Her
X Factor is entering its third season, but it looks like the show will soon be missing one pop star.
Britney Spears is saying sayonara to X Factor. Brit Brit, who was paid $15 million to be a judge on the show, is leaving X Factor after only one season.
According to a source, she wants to beat Simon Cowell to the punch by leaving the show before she gets the boot. Cowell had high hopes for X Factor with the addition of Spears and singer Demi Lovato, but the show’s ratings haven’t been up to snuff.
Other sources say that Spears wants to refocus on her music and get to work on her upcoming eighth album.
“Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music,” says a source to TMZ.
We wonder who’ll take her empty seat?
The panel of judges on X Factor is like a revolving door. Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were shown the door after the first season and L.A. Reid won’t be returning for the third season. No word yet on whether Lovato will be on the judges’ panel in the coming season.
