Britney Spears wanted pay rise

Jan 14 2013, 9:22am CST | by

Britney Spears reportedly demanded a $3 million pay rise to stay on 'The X Factor'.

The 'Toxic' hitmaker announced last week she was leaving the show after just one season as a judge and insiders claim it is because program chiefs refused her salary demands of $18 million.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "When producers asked if she wanted to return for the third season of 'The X Factor', Britney's reps said she would only come back if she was offered $18 million.

"But after much deliberation, they just felt that Britney wasn't worth that much because she wasn't bringing enough to the table.

"Her performance as a judge was scrutinized, and she didn't really add anything to the show. They felt she didn't warrant a $3 million pay hike.

"When she originally signed up for $15 million last season, it was stressed that was as far as the network could go financially for her."

Announcing her departure from the program on Friday (11.01.13), Britney said she wanted to go back to her music career.

She said in a statement: "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."

Lindsay Lohan claims she ‘rolled a body bag for Whitney Houston’ at the morgue

Sep 15 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

The Telegraph has a rather epic interview with Lindsay Lohan – go here to read the full thing. I think it probably started out as just a standard what-is-this-actress-up-to piece (ahead of her turn in Speed-the-Plow), but at some point, it morphs into Lindsay Lohan: Portrait of a Cracked-Out Mess. Subtitle: “It’s Never Lindsay’s Fault. Ever.” The Telegraph goes through LL’s filmography and tries to pinpoint when everything went wrong for her. By the end of the piece, ...

First Listen: Mapei, 'Hey Hey'

Sep 14 2014 10:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Pop music is constructed with many of the same base directives as candy, which is why the two are so often compared. Above all, both must feel good to consume, and both must make us want more. Pop meets basic human desires, and thus often gets dismissed as basic itself. It's true that the consumption of good pop is, by design, easy. But its creation is as exacting an art as tempering chocolate without scorching it, or whipping a ca ...

Britney Spears Wants To Gag Porn Star

Britney Spears’ lawyers sent a threatening letter to Cali Lee, the porn star her ex-boyfriend David Lucado cheated on her with because he sometimes makes good decisions. Spears’ team is demanding Lee adhere to Lucado’s confidentiality agreement, which is a thing two people sign when they are in love and one of them is poor and the other is famous and not poor.
