According to TMZ.com, Britney Spears has reportedly been offered and accepted $15 million to join the show as a judge, filing one of the two vacant seats.
The final paperwork is still being passed around executive offices, but that's a pretty hefty paycheck!
At that price, you could hit me baby as many times as you want!
Compared with previous judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abul, who collectively earned only $4 million, Spears will be making history as the priciest judge.
“I would love to have her on the show,” Cowell told TMZ. “I think she’s a fascinating person.”
Is she fascinating enough to draw the viewers needed to pay her salary? We’ll have to wait and see.
But, more importantly… Would this mean the Britney Spears schoolgirl poster from the 90's on my wall is cool again?
The musical chairs on the “X Factor” judicial panel came to a head when Sharon Osbourne reportedly left the show for reasons to do with Executive Producer and host Simon Cowell’s alleged affair with former judge, Dannii Minogue.
Then, with all the cards on the table, the conflict got personal on Monday when Osbourne diagnosed Cowell with “small penis syndrome” on the talk show “The Talk.”
Ouch! Maybe Cowell will ask Spears for a second opinion.
