L.A. Reid is quitting his judging position on “The X Factor.” Seriously? Now all that’s left is Britney Spears and her two word answers, Demi Lovato and her half-judging half-flirting, and Simon Cowell as the only one who knows what he’s doing!
Also, now that Reid is out, we have to deal with ANOTHER obnoxious round of which has-been pop star is going to join “The X Factor.”
But back to Reid. He says he wants to return to Epic Records and really focus on his role there as chairman.
“I have decided that I will not return to ‘The X Factor’ next year. It saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit. I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected,” Reid announced.
Apparently, Reid pretty much ditched his work at epic records during his two season stint on the judging show, saying, “This was a nice break but now it’s time to get back to work.”
There are also unconfirmed rumors that Britney will be dropped next season or at the very least, her salary will be cut.
Britney is paid $15 mil, which is ridiculous, seeing as the show never pulls in the viewers it predicts it will.
The show is desperate to cut costs next season, and one easy fix is replacing Britney with cheaper talent or significantly cutting her paycheck.
Who knows if Britney is willing to lower her fee. Despite how stupidly rich everyone in Tinseltown is, “lowering your rate” is kind of an insult in Hollywood.
