Britney Spears axed from 'The X Factor'?

Dec 27 2012, 12:13pm CST | by

Britney Spears is allegedly set to be axed from 'The X Factor' USA.

The 'Hold It Against Me' singer - who acted as a judge on the second series of the FOX reality TV show alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid - is reportedly unlikely to have her contract renewed after disappointing producers with her "low energy" and providing "boring" feedback to contestants.

A source told US Weekly magazine, that the 31-year-old mother-of-two - who was on a one year $15 million contract and whose act Carly Rose made it to this season's grand final - is facing the axe just weeks after music producer and record label boss L.A. Reid announced he won't be returning next year.

The insider said: "Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working. They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps."

The source said Simon Cowell was especially let down by Britney's attitude on the panel, saying: "He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney."

Meanwhile, Britney's personal relationship with fiance Jason Trawick is also reportedly on the rocks.

A friend said: "They are pulling away from each other. Unless things change, they will split for good."

Sources previously claimed that 'The X Factor' producers were eager to dramatically reduce the show's budget next season and felt they could not justify paying Britney $15 million again in light of the show's disappointing ratings.

The source said: "Producers were hoping to pull in between 15-20 million viewers but the show hasn't reached those expectations and in a recent episode that clashed with the World Series only 5.7 million watched.

"Those numbers add up to cost cutting and Britney will be expendable. So, considering Fox has already renewed 'The X Factor' for a third season, producers will be looking to spend less on the production of the show, including the judges' salaries.

"Britney, who was signed on a one-year deal, is the first person who will be expected to have her salary chopped. She is on a $15 million contract, which is absurd given that there's been no huge surge in the ratings."

Does Kerry Washington think Beyonce is a terrible role model to young women?

Jul 31 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve read my fair share of Kerry Washington interviews, and my take on Kerry is that she is a thoughtful, educated, interesting, modest, cool woman. She doesn’t seem like she tolerates fools for very long, but she’s not nasty about it either. Like, she’s not mean. You never hear her directly throwing shade, nor are there secondary sources coming out to throw shade on her behalf. She seems like she strives to get along with peo ...

Jul 30 2014 4:07pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

The ads for Britney Spears' lingerie line that hit the web last week showed the pop star looking more trim and toned than she has in years. But while Brit's clearly been working out, and may even be benefiting from laser fat removal treatments, an expert in digital photo editing says the lingerie ads were still altered to flatten Brit's midsection.
