Is Christina Aguilera Already Bashing Britney Spears And Her “X Factor” Gig?

Talk about shots fired! It looks like Christina Aguilera is wasting no time in putting her two cents in about the rumors surrounding Britney Spears and her on meltdown alert over her new job as an “X Factor” judge.

This is what Star Magazine has to say about Christina’s rant:

The tabloid claims Aguilera was “freaking out” when she tuned in to the TV announcement of Spears’ new gig, quoting a so-called “source” as saying, “She was throwing things and cursing.”

The alleged insider adds that “The Voice” judge ranted that Spears “acted like a zombie” and was “going to be a disaster” on the singing competition.

If there’s anything we should do, that would be to at least support Britney in her new role, right? I don’t think anyone would want to see her be a disaster on national television, especially with everything she’s been dealing with in the past few years.

Is Britney Spears “Coming Undone” As ‘X Factor’ Judge?

If Us Weekly’s story is true, then it sounds like the stress of taping a reality TV show may be too much for Britney Spears. An insider claims she’s off to a “rocky startas a judge on ‘X Factor.’

“Doing X Factor may lead her back into meltdown territory. She gets extremely nervous and anxious. She’s hard on herself and not very confident.”

Apparently, all change is stressful for Britney (as it is for most people), but she seems to have a more difficult time handling it. Even things like her engagement to Jason Trawick can put her on edge.

“For her, it’s all an input as stress. This is a lot of change at once for Britney. She’s coming undone.”

Yet another source says the people around Britney (remember, she’s still under a conservatorship) wouldn’t let her be a judge on ‘X Factor’ if it was too much.

“Jason and Britney’s family wouldn’t let her do X Factor if she couldn’t handle it. At first they weren’t going to let her because she couldn’t do live TV — they didn’t know what she would say. But they went over it with Britney, and they trust her.”

 

Hopefully Britney can handle this and is up for the challenge. I’d imagine the tapings may not be so bad, but when the show starts airing live, that’s another story.

Britney Spears Wanted A Bigger Paycheck Than Jennifer Lopez

When it comes to Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, these two have always battled it out on the music charts, but now, they’re going to head-to-head with their singing reality shows AND their paychecks.

According to TMZ, before Britney signed on the dotted line to judge the second season of The X-Factor, she had a special request— to make more money than J.Lo! Though Brit eventually settled on a $15 million payday ($3 million more than what Jennifer made on her first season of Idol), sources say that the singer originally wanted a sum close to $20 million. And just who is responsible for making Britney’s “big bucks dream” come true? Creator and executive producer Simon Cowell, that’s who!

“Simon Cowell is a smart and shrewd businessman who knew Britney could make his show and he was willing to give her just about anything to come on board – and he did,” said a source.

With rumors swirling that Jennifer may leave Idol if she doesn’t get a pay raise, it looks like Britney’s X-Factor deal has something to do with it.

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!
