The X Factor on FOX is still on the hunt for new judges after Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were fired from the series. Recently, Janet Jackson stated that she would not be joining the show, but new rumors say that Britney Spears is in talks with Simon Cowell. Could she be the next judge? Read on for the scoop!
Recent reports claim that Simon Cowell has offered Britney Spears $10 million to join the judges panel on The X Factor, but will she bite? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Britney Spears’ fiance and agent, Jason Trawick, is currently working out a deal with Simon Cowell for a contract that could be signed as soon as next week. There is only one problem – Britney Spears reportedly wants more than $10 million dollars for the gig…actually, she wants closer to $16 million, sources claim.
So maybe the question should be: will Simon Cowell bite? Simon appears very interested in Britney Spears, as he recently said of the troubled pop star: “This girl has resilience. I would think that if she’s managed to sustain a family, a career, which is tough, this would be a walk in the park. I would be fascinated to hear what she has to say. She’s still hot, she’s still having hit records and she’s still controversial. There’s a reason for that.”
Do you think Britney Spears would make a good fit as a judge on The X Factor? Something tells us that she may deter people from watching more than encourage it, but hey, Simon knows best, right? Sound off below and tell us what you think!
