The First “X Factor” Promo Starring Britney Spears And Demi Lovato Premieres

It looks like Simon Cowell might be having second thoughts here! In a new promo video for next season’s “The X Factor,” which will see both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato take over as judges, Simon asks himself, “What was I thinking?”

Check out the video and tell us, will you be tuning in to “The X Factor” with Brit Brit and Demi? Do you think they have a chance of helping the show with its ratings and possibly doing better than “American Idol” or even “The Voice?”

Britney Spears ‘X Factor’ Rider Details

I love looking at celebrities’ riders (the “extras” they negotiate as part of their contracts). At least some of the details of Britney Spears’ rider for ‘X Factor’ have leaked (and it’s a lot more than just prunes and figs). It reportedly includes:

  • 34 Herve Leger dresses
  • 12 Snicker bars
  • Six cases of Diet Coke containing 24 cans (which must be restocked weekly)
  • 10 snack-size bags of Doritos for herself and her team daily
  • 12 vases of magnolia blossoms in her dressing room
  • 10 pieces of chicken and four pints of potato salad every week

Britney also had it written into her contract that she have her own beauty team, including a personal manicurist, a facialist and a massage therapist. This is all ON TOP OF her $15 million salary as a judge. Well, if you can get it, why not?

Britney Spears And Jason Trawick Go For A Ride


Fresh off the Fox up fronts earlier today Britney Spears and her very handsome fiancé Jason Trawick headed out into NYC and grabbed a pedicab.

I love how protective Jason is of Britney with his hand wrapped around her constantly.  I’m pretty sure she’s safe in the pedicab but I love that it seems to be his second nature to protect her.

Britney had a pretty big day today with her being announced (officially) as one of the new judges on The X-Factor.  I think this is such a great thing for both the show and for Britney and I will definitely be tuning in!

Update: It’s Official! Britney Spears AND Demi Lovato Join The “X Factor”

It looks like Britney Spears is officially being joined by fellow former Disney Channel alumni Demi Lovato on the “X Factor” judging panel. The two chart toppers posed for a photo together with judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid this afternoon that Britney later shared with her fans on her Twitter account.

Tell us, are you excited to see both Britney and Demi on the live singing competition show? I’m sure a lot of people are going to be tuning in to the “X Factor” now just to see Britney help out the contestants. I’m certain there isn’t a mean bone in her body and I’m sure she is going to be a total sweetheart on the show. As far as Demi though, I can see her giving some good, constructive criticism as a judge. I can’t wait for this show to start now!

It’s Official – Britney Spears Will Join The X Factor Next Season

Oh I’m so excited! It has been confirmed that Britney Spears will join fellow judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as one of the judges of The X Factor for the upcoming season.

Rumours had been swirling for quite some time now that Brit was in negotiations to join the show after previous judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were let go, and today E! confirmed the news.  According to their source;

The contract is signed.  There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on. It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.”

Brit reportedly signed a one year $15 million deal.  This will definitely make me tune in to the next season of The X Factor – will you?

Jason Trawick Named As Britney Spears’ Co-Conservator

Jason Trawick has officially been named as co-conservator to fiancee Britney Spears estate after filing the petition on April 6th.

Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, had assumed the sole conservator role up until now and according to his attorney Geraldine Wyle

“Jamie’s thrilled It’s all in the family.”

According to People magazine;

‘Conservators typically have legal authority over a person’s general well-being, which includes decisions about food, clothing and medical care. Trawick will not have any legal control over Britney’s multimillion-dollar fortune, which is overseen by her father and another attorney.’

Hopefully Britney will be doing well enough soon that she won’t need a conservator at all.

Britney Spears Close To $15 Million ‘X Factor’ Deal

Britney Spears reportedly is close to becoming one of the new judges for the next season of ‘X Factor’ for $15 million! TMZ reports that Britney’s team and the show’s producers are negotiating the “finer points” of the contract. Then, as long as Britney’s father and lawyer sign off on it, then it’s a done deal! Simon Cowell said:

“I would love to have her on the show … I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to.”

I know Britney is one of the biggest pop stars in the world, so on one hand this makes sense. Yet on the other: what kind of mentor would Britney really be? She doesn’t strike me as the type of singer who’s very involved in the decision-making: she strikes me as the type of artist who does as she’s told, and that is why she’s a success.

Well, I bet Britney will keep the show interesting!
