Okay, we already knew that Britney Spears is out as a judge on X Factor, but to hear it straight from the sweet southern pop princess' mouth is like daggers through our hearts!!
She's already alluded to heading back into the studio to work on a new album, but now, BritBrit has finally spoken up and confirmed that she's moving on from the reality show in a statement reading:
"I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most."
Okay, okay, so we won't be seeing our little Louisiana pie on our teevees twice a week now, BUT, the Scream and Shout starlet may be packing up her deeelicious Cheetos and Starbux coupons and heading to the brights lights of Sin City! Fingers crossed, everybody!!
