After much speculation and vague answers from Simon Cowell and FOX head honchos, Ms. Britney Spears has decided NOT to return to “The X Factor” next season.
Believe it or not, but Britney is going back to making music.
Yes, music, as in singing. Remember that’s what Britney was originally famous for.
A source told TMZ, “Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music.”
One of the biggest issues for “The X Factor” last year was that Britney’s $15 million salary was just too high and they would probably have to cut down on her salary if she were hired again OR hire waaaayy cheaper talent to replace L.A. Reid.
So maybe Britney heard her salary might get cut and realized it wasn’t worth it?
Also, let’s be completely honest, Britney didn’t contribute THAT much to the show. She either said “your singing is really bad” or “your singing is really good." It’s almost like Britney didn’t even care about being on the show, so I’m not surprised she’s leaving.
Britney is reportedly enlisting the help of her “Scream and Shout” partner Will.i.am and “Ni***a in Paris” producer Hit-Boy to put together what would become her 8th studio album.
Apparently, Britney is also “seriously considering” going on tour again after the album drops. Hmm, did she NOT see her own Femme Fatale tour? Because that thing was a HOT MESS.
Whatever, the tour made like $100 million, so…
