Britney will get $15 million to be the new 'X factor' judge


E! says that things are all but official and Britney Spears is set to be a judge alongside Simon Cowell and LA Reid on season two of 'the X factor', when she'll become the highest paid judge on television at $15,000,000 a season.

Britneys former agent-current fiancé Jason Trawick set the deal up, and now he'll also be a producer on the show. Though they probably should have hired him as a producer first and then gone after Britney. I bet he wouldn't have thought 15 million a year was such a good idea then.

"Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee. That was the big sticking point and now, thankfully, it's been sorted. All they need to do now is work out the smaller points. The fact the money is now set, means that there is nothing stopping this from becoming a reality."

This will be a huge step up from what they were paying Paula Abdul last year. Because she's borderline retarded, and they could just pay her with blank strips of paper with an X on it that they called "Paula Dollars".
