Simon Cowell Regretting Hiring Britney Spears?

| Filed under: Britney SpearsSimon CowellX Factor

simon cowell britney spears x factor auditions

As much as WE believe in the royal princess, we just keep hearing all these rumors of Simon Cowell second-guessing the greatest decision of his X Factor career!

Apparently all of Britney Spears' walk-offs (gurl has to use the ladies room, people) has sent him into a tizzy, according to sources.

In fact … one of them even goes so far as to say:

"It’s embarrassing to have an empty seat on the panel in filming sessions, as the footage is almost totally wasted. If a great singer appears, and producers want to use the audition, you have to tell viewers why Britney wasn’t there. That’s not easy."

Hmm… well, okay. We can understand that. For sure. But TV is all about magic!

The story producers are getting paid BIG BUCKS to whip up the magic, and let's be honest… having Britney on for most of the time is way more glamorous than having almost anyone else on for the whole time.

(…well, except us obviously…)

    Perez, I wish you would quit using the word royal to describe the rich and famous.
    As for Simon, he hired her for the buzz, not the expertise. He is getting what he paid for. It will be interesting how it goes for the live shows, it will be much more difficult to cover for her.

    Simon knew he hired someone who is unstable, not terribly bright and she's expensive.
    I wonder if her gays can turn this mess into a hit.

    Re: madonna is shit – Femme Fatale went straight to #1, her world-tour was most of the time sold out. It sure is a flop kid, it sure is.

    Britney won't last the season. Flaky and as lacroix said - unstable & not too bright. Brit is a great performer - that is where she should stay.

    Maybe because the doctors dx her with bipolar disorder and treats her with Lithium which causes nephrogenic diabetes insipidus which means that kidneys doesn't recognize ADH and you urinate a lot. Just a thought

    Britney Spears is not royal in any sense of the word, you moron. We do not have royalty in this country; no, not even those shanty-Irish, fucked up Kennedys. Spare us the constant use of the word "royal." You know fuck-all about it, that much is clear, and I really do get sick and tired of your huge ignorance.

    She is a money machine to her family and entourage. She's was, is, and always be mentally ill. At best, without a handler 24/7 she is unstable. Meds, conservatorships, and babysitters can only do so much. This is the trade off; keep her working so the money comes in and destroy even the smallest shred of sanity the poor thing has left.

    Even if this isn't true and her walking off is just bathroom breaks, how are they going to work around it in live shows? If she isn't there when the cameras are filming then there was no point of them paying her to be there.

  17. 17

    she sucks, always has.

    The worst part is that Britney is stealing Christina's personality and tough style of judging on X Factor (something that set Christina apart from Paula and Jennifer), in an attempt to appear confident, shocking, and controvertial. She told one contestant they needed a new teacher to teach them how to sing! Another contestant she told them that "since we're in Kansas, I'd rather hear Toto sing." Britney went from having no personality for the last 5 years and barely saying anything beyond "that's awesome" to this fake woman. A complete clone of Christina. Do we really need 2 Christinas? I guess X Factor saw the drama was working on The Voice and they wanted a piece of that. L.A. Reid is so pressed too. A young girl told him that she "wants to be as big as Christina Aguilera" and he told her that Britney is bigger and nicer. Tacky.

    I don't care who she is, everyone is replaceable, people envy her like crazy and she is only giving them the satisfaction of her fall, get it 2gether girl and do your thing

    Re: madonna is shit – LMFAO, riight keep telling yourself that every night when you go to bed! Britney Spears is the QUEEN of Pop. She never has to seek out the music, they seek her, THEY WANT HER because they KNOW she makes their songs HOTT! Not Madonna, who is a tired old slut who has NEVER done a damn thing for the Gay community! Lady Gaga is the only female Pop artist who has the ability to come up and take the Reign. Last time I saw, Britney Spears keeps selling out WORLD FUCKING TOURS! When was the last time you did that Buddy!???!

    you guys keep saying she has no talent and cant sing a note yet she managed to stay on top since shes 17 (or younger, at age 13 when she got her 1st contract with her actual manager Larry Rudolph)… i dont f*cking care if shes mariah or whitney, simon cant give us one single note and is a judge, why u mad? if she is successful with 0 talent (as some of you blindly believe), then she can teach others with more talent how to get there…right?

  22. lisbellas says – reply to this


    they creating way too much stories about her and x factor, its so obvious what exactly the media is tryin to do…

  23. Purple plum 99 says – reply to this


    I blame her people they have no idea all they want is money they have not prepared her for this she looks a mess I have never seen such bad styling hair and makeup it is all of such a poor standard. it looks like its exit for Britney she just cannot reach the standard of what is expected and I blame her people for taking the $10million and neglecting her styling and performance. they have ruined her career because they obviously have no idea how it works.

  24. WONDER says – reply to this


    0 talent with management that think that they know what they are doing but don't have a clue when it comes to a show like x factor. the camera never lies and she looks and behaves like shit, it's game over for Britney.

  25. Peepeejackson says – reply to this


    Simon should of put his foot down and demanded what she really needed .His as much to blame as her management its his show surely he has the last say righr? maybe he should get Louis to cover him she seems happier with people that have no talent sitting next to her that lick her ass and make her look good thats why she loves Louis and thats why Louis loves her 2 non talents together. (how sweet!!)

    Re: madonna is shit – Umm… #1 album, 3 top 10 singles, and sold-out tour dates equals FLOP to you? xD HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! LOL! OKAY! You are OBVIOUSLY retarded, there's NOTHING higher than #1! :D Brit's boys are THE CUTTEST! Have you ACTUALLY seen them? THEY'RE SO CUTE! When they grow up they're gonna steal all the girls or boys… WHOEVER THEY FUCKING WANT! ;) Get a life, sucker! BTW i love your avatar, she looks so cute! ;)

    Re: britneycopiesxtina – Do you realize Floptina's WHOLE career has been a RIP-OFF of Britney's and that without Britney she would have no career? She was only relevant as "Britney's rival" WAAAAAAAAY back, before her music started sucking… oh, wait… HER MUSIC HAS ALWAYS SUCKED! xD So now, being a real judge equals copying?… That's just pathetic… maybe next time! ;)

  29. 29
