According to The Huffington Post, Fox’s Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly spoke about Spears at a press panel on Tuesday, “I actually thought it went very, very well,” he said. “It was fraught with unknowns, and I think Britney did a really good job. She came on; people remain fascinated with her and always will be. She’s just an interesting figure who’s lived a unique life, and I thought she brought some of that.”
And when asked if Fox would be bringing Spears back for X Factor’s season three, Reilly said, “Yeah.”
However, according to TMZ, Spears, 31, will not be returning for season three of The X Factor. And no, she wasn’t fired! The decision to part ways with the show was completely her decision. So what’s going on and why isn’t Spears coming back for another season?
A source close to the mega pop star said there’s no doubt about it, Spears loves the show but she will not be returning. “Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato, but her thing is music.” Spears is a performer…not a judge and she wants to focus on her music.
Last month in a Twitter Q&A, Spears said she’s currently in the studio “working hard” on her eighth album with Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy. But when asked about her future as an X Factor judge, she simply said, “[I’m] really focused on my music right now.” Then on Monday, she tweeted, “I’m seeing so much chatter about new music out there. Glad to see you’re all paying attention Lot of work to do in 2013! LETS GO!”
A source close to Spears said she is seriously considering going on tour again once the album is completed.
