Poor Britney Spears just cannot catch a break, can she?
The pop sensation has turned out to be a more than competent judge on this season of The X Factor, but despite proving her critics wrong, new reports are surfacing that claim that due to concern from the reality competition's producers regarding the upcoming live shows, they are requesting that FOX add an additional time delay to the already behind live feed!
'It's not surprising people are concerned, it's going to be a huge test for her and there's a lot of pressure, in fact producers have had meetings to discuss having an extended time delay on the live show broadcast which is usually seven seconds delay. It's up to Fox if they can make it longer but everyone's nervous and no one knows what to expect. Britney is going to be live on-air for 3 hours a week. If anything goes wrong, it happens in front of the whole country – there is no rewind button on LIVE TV. Taping auditions is one things when they have a whole day to take breaks but live shows could be a train wreck if she isn't super-prepared for it or if she can't handle the pressure. X Factor has always claimed that Britney didn't walk off during auditions but everyone knows she struggled at the start so it's hardly a surprise if the producers are asking for an extension into the live broadcast. Auditions are one thing, but live is a whole other ballgame.'
Oh, COME ON!
Enough already! Hasn't she proven herself by now?
She's been KILLING it…and is looking BETTER than ever!
But according to Brit Brit's friends, this all just may be a result of Sam Lufti's current legal battle against her parents, and his now-public court claims that she was addicted to meth!
'Britney has been getting her life back together this year. Everyone around her has worked hard to get her back to a good place and keep her there, and what Lufti's doing seems like it might undo their good work.'
Which is truly such a shame, given how it seems to us like so much of her problems were exasperated by him in the first place!
It's time to let go of her past troubles and embrace how far she's come and how hard she's worked to re-establish herself!
If she built up the confidence to perform as well as she has so far, we think she's more THAN capable of live television!
Stay strong, gurl! Your perseverance is an inspiration to us all!
