On the very first day as a judge on ‘the X Factor’ yesterday, Britney Spears walked off the set after a contestant sang a predictably awful version of her song ‘Hold It Against Me’, and the next four contestants performed in front of Simon Cowell, LA Reid, Demi Lovato, and Empty Chair.
As you might remember, this is the exact same thing that happened last season too, when Paula Abdul walked off set on day one. Although that actually worked out fine since the empty chair offered more lucid commentary.

Britney Spears arrived in Austin, Texas, this afternoon to judge the first round of auditions for ‘the X Factor’, and assuming that’s actually where they are, things are off to a good start. Even her toughest critic would have to admit that she can, in fact, stand in front of a banner and smile when told to.

Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are both in New York today so Fox can officially announce that they’re joining Simon Cowell and LA Reid as judges on ‘The X Factor’. Demi’s goal will be to target in on the next big star in music, but avoid any major arteries when she freaks out under the pressure and starts cutting again.
Britney Spears has finally signed a one year deal worth $15 million to join Simon Cowell and LA Reid as judges on the second season of ‘The X-Factor’.
While most think this is a home run, Howard Stern was asked about her at a press conference last night to promote his debut on ‘Americas Got Talent’ this coming Monday, and didn’t sound all that excited:
“I don’t anticipate great opinions from her. I think she’s gonna sit there like J.Lo, ‘Oh, you’re wonderful, you’re terrific. You think I can get a perfume endorsement out of this?’ ”
“As far as any real criticism, I think Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid will do that…I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit.”
Well ok yeah she probably will do all that, but she won’t be like J.Lo. Britney will at least be sincere, she’s at least a nice person, whereas Jennifer Lopez is a mean bitch. When you see J.Lo in real life, she’s pretty but also looks like she could go insane at any second. It’s like staring into the eyes of a wild bear.

Britney Spears wore a gold and crystal encrusted sports bra that costs $20,011 while filming the Twister Dance fun and fitness game from Hasbro. And yes they didn’t just say “$20,000″ and included the “11″. The fanciness goes to 11.
According to todays press release:
…the ‘Eternal Love Bra’ by Body Rock bra is embellished with 18K gold skulls set with diamond eyes, which hang from an 18K zip. A Swarovski Crystal Heart also dangles from each golden skull. The racerback style bra also has silver diamond Swarovski crystals and gold pyramid studs.
Thankfully Amazon can explain what the hell the Twister Dance game is:
“This is what you get when you cross a Twister mat with dance lessons.”
And since the only goal of Twister is to not fall down, this has to be the least ambitious instructional DVD ever. Teaching someone to make it through one song without collapsing in a heap on the floor seems like a fairly modest achievement.

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”.
