Britney Spears' Contract Negotiations For X Factor Continue!

It's getting closer and closer to a reality!

This is AMAZING!

Although Britney Spears was said to have rejected the $10 million she was offered to join the judges panel of the new season of X Factor — having wanted at least a $20 million payout — but now, we've gotten word that negotiations are still going on, as her salary does not seem to be an issue!

The pop icon is more concerned about ensuring that she has a one-year "out clause" should she not want to continue after this year!

A source explains:

"Money is not an issue for the show. As of now, they are looking to pay her $12 to $15 million for the first season, with a drastic price hike for a second year based on ratings performance. [Executive producer] Simon Cowell wants at least a two-year commitment, and Britney wants an out clause if she doesn't want to continue after one year of service."

Hey! That's just smart business right there!

Especially given the way this show has gone through cast members in just one season!

And there's no denying what a ratings draw our Brit Brit would be!

We really hope this happens! Gurl could get used to being in front of the camera again, while simultaneously showing everyone just what a good ear she has for music AND talent!

What about this situation ISN'T a complete win/win?!

    She is a great performer, and she will be a big draw. I just hope it is not too much pressure for her. I am sure they will coach her and tell her what to say, but I still worry that she won't be able to handle it.

    Just what that crappy show needs. A Lip Syncing Judge!

    Holy shit! HUGE bucks for a non-singing, lip-synching girl that won't likely even be an honest judge? Just DAMN!



  4. 4

    I don't think she should do the show. This is going to be too much for her and she is boarding a sinking ship. These shows are on their way out. Even The Voice is boring this year.



  5. 5

    Didn't you report she had a deal? Her interviews are dripping sweet and baby talk with ill formed sentences. Then on her reality show and in real life when she has been taped she is just kind of foul mouthed and simple. I am not putting her down…just pointing out the facts. Will they treat her like a Paula or a sickening sweet airhead?



  6. 6

    I don't know if this is true or not but I have been told the reason she smiles all the time like the picture is her father uses a stun gun on her when she deosn't smile!



  7. 7

    Taking critique on your singing from an autotune dependent 'singer'? LOLOLOLOL



  8. 8

    Someone should pay her $10 to just go away forever. She could split that money with Perez and leave!



  9. 9

    Its such a terrible idea to put her on a show….she might have to speak out of script and we all know what happens when she steps away from her handlers…



  10. 10

    The queen of cheetos should just take the money and run, she old and tired.



  11. 11

    Why would they want a lip-syncing hillbilly???



  12. 12

    Ughhhhh dont do it Britney!!!! whyyyyyyyyy! you just know everyone is going to criticize her NO MATTER what she says, it's just going to put more pressure on her and probably negatively affect her huge progress. BLAH



  13. 13

    i dont think she cant judge… at all.



  14. 14

    Re: CaliCoyote – lol!!!! you're really hung up on that same tired comment!!!! #drone

    Simon should give her the 20 million and any thing else she ask for.Britnet wiil add so much to the show and give it the HUGE boost in the ratings that it needs.Obviously Simon disagrees with all you FOOLS who say she can't sing are dance.



  16. 16

    Re: barny – the haters are all secretly obsessed with britney!! :-)



  17. 17

    Britney is a haggard fucking mess…She should be shot and pissed on. Shes disgusting and should just off herself and go the fuck away.



  18. 18

    I don't want her to be on the show . . once you become a judge of a singing show - that means your done and running out of options. Look at Christina. Bionic and Burlesque flopped so what else can she do? You're better than stupid simon cowell britney!!! J-lo's making idol work I guess but I don;t watch that shit anyways



  19. 19

    she's gonna suck bad. just wait and see… overrated.



  20. 20

    …definatly…if your gonna judge singers, get someone who cant sing ! thats fukin brilliant einstien !!!

    Re: Pantera – gee, you sound like a frustrated serial killer. poor little pantera! lol! :-)

    My biggest problem with Britney being a judge is all she will probably say is, very cool, for every contestant.



  23. 23

    Re: tasha – shorter comments from you, please!!!! lol!!!!



  24. 24

    Look at that face, does that look like a happy or mentally well individual? Always with the fake smile, leaking both fear and anxiety. She needs to get away, from this and from her handlers.



  25. 25

    She kind of looks like Kim Richards in that pic.



  26. 26

    She can't be any dumber than Nicole scherzinger but at Nicole has that hot bod. Brit seems to have any compelling personality that she once had a bit of. But never could sing or dance so why not judge others. Put her on I say



  27. 27

    Although she does look cute in that pic

  28. @v@ says – reply to this

    If she does do the show, she'll get a decent hairstyle and no roots. All that money, and no hair stylist? This hair could be working in a bar in the 70's.



  29. 29

    Re: @v@ – that's the thing that makes brit so unique and amazing. bitch could look perfect 24 / 7 if she wanted to…bitch could look better than rihann and katy and madonna and nicki if she wanted to…she couldn't give a shit!! she's our liz tayor!! fat skinny messy gorgeous fucked up clothing no stylist!! she's pure genius. britney forever!!!! :-) #BAMBI

    Boring… say whatever you want haters, she is the biggest star EVER after Michael and Madonna, so… She is worth more than that even if she doesn't talk, just for being there! ;) Britney will soon be performing like before… nobody can do it like her!.

    BTW… Perez, you keep posting the WORSE pictures of Britney you can find, you're probably late posting the news because you take HOURS looking for THE WORST photo of her in an event… she looked STUNNING that day… but it's kinda funny, she doesn't look ugly in this one, she looks like a crazy perv looking something she clearly liked! xD Hahaha! :P

    Re: BritneyQueen90 – perez needs to get some dick. BRITNEY FOREVER!!
