Britney Spears Talks About Getting Booed on 'Leno'

Forget Frankenstorm, it’s Frankenspears…

Following a drama-bloated incident centering around her heavily doctored photo spread, Britney Spears reemerged looking more like herself.

The appearance took place on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” where the “Oops!…I Did it Again” singer wore a black and white patterned mini-dress and bangs that looked more or less natural.

Treading lightly, Leno asked Spears about what it was like to get booed by the audience on “The X Factor.”

“You just like cringe,” said Britney, her voice going into a higher register. “You’re like oh my Gawd!”

Lucky for the born again diva, Simon Cowell was sitting close by, ushering her through the interview.

“There was this look to me like, ‘What have I signed up for?’” added Simon. “We had a conversation. It was like ‘I’m not sure I should be doing this’ and ‘They hate me, they’re booing me.’”

Simon explained that he assured Britney she was doing a “brilliant job” and that being an a**hole to people is actually a lot of fun.

Britney added that it’s still hard to be the one to tell people that singing isn’t their thing.

“If they’re supposed to be a doctor and they’re, you know, and they’re wasting seven years of their life,” said Britney. “You, you just… I would want to know.”

As we previously reported, Brit last made headlines when she – or a profoundly photoshopped version of herself – appeared on the cover of Lucky magazine.

Following the glossy’s flub, they issued an apology on Twitter, telling angered fans, “Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we’re sorry to have let some of you down.”
