Britney Spears will NOT be a judge on “X Factor” next season, and it’s entirely her doing. Many sources tell TMZ that Britney loves the show but wants to focus on her music, which she is doing right now. Britney is in the studio recording her 8th album, with some help from Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy, the brains behind Kanye and Jay-Z’s albums.
Other sources say, “Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music.” I tell ya, walking away from $15MM is something I would just love to have the option to do. Must be pretty nice to know that it isn’t a big deal to turn down that kind of money.
We’re pretty sure Britney was going to get axed anyway so this was a nice preemptive play on her part.
