That's right, Britney Spears may very well be an artist up for grabs!
The pop star's current contract with RCA, formerly Jive Records, only has ONE album left on it, and it appears that there are already two pretty big contenders hoping to sign her for the next phase of her music career!
And the first one may have an unfair advantage: he'll be sitting next to her on the judges panel of The X Factor this September!
According to reports, L.A. Reid is VERY adamant about signing her to his Epic Records label at Sony!
However, former Jive head, Barry Weiss, thinks that his history with Mz. Spears will give him an advantage in negotiations, as he also desperately wants her at Island Def Jam Motown and Universal Republic!
"I have a 15-year history with Britney and would love to be reunited with her."
So now she has to pick between an old friend and a new friend!
Gah! We wouldn't want to be in her shoes right now!
Or THEIRS, for that matter!
They are going to have to offer up a serious chunk of change to win her favor!
Wherever she goes, though, one thing is for certain:
She's going to keep on creating some INCREDIBLE tunes! So it will be money WELL SPENT!
