Despite Britney Spears expressing her desire to return to The X Factor next season, rumors are circulating that Britney may get the boot from the series that paid $15 million to get her on the judging panel just earlier this year.

“Britney will get the boot,” an inside source told Us Weekly. “Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working…They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”

Additionally, the source adds that creator Simon Cowell had believed Spears would inject some much needed drama into the show.

“He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”

“No one has discussed next year’s judging panel yet,” producers have told The Hollywood Reporter. “ Any reports otherwise are complete speculation.”

Though Britney’s myriad of facial expressions were a highlight of this rather lackluster X Factor season, $15 million is a lot to pay for just that. Looks like the drama Simon wanted this season is happening behind the camera instead!

‘South Park’ Released The Full-Length Version Of The Lorde Song

Recently, “South Park” made fun of Lorde by claiming that Randy Marsh was actually the teenage crooner. It was more of a statement on the computer-aided production of music these days, rather than a jab at Lorde, which is probably why the actual Lorde took it so well. Now, the “South Park” guys released the […]
