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."

Here’s How Awful Everything With Amanda Bynes Is Going

Oct 1 2014 11:24am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Like most people, I just assumed Amanda Bynes was off somewhere being heavily-medicated while her parents took fancy vacations with her money. But then over the weekend, she was picked up for DUI and everyone found out her conservatorship is over and she’s out there doing whatever the fuck she wants. As for how and why her conservatorship is over, it turns out her parents willingly chose not to extend it because they’ve convinced themselves her problem isn’t mental illness, but p ...

10 Things I Hate About Pop: Charli XCX

Sep 30 2014 3:38am CDT | Source: Clash Music

Issue 98’s cover feature…One can forgive Charli XCX for losing heart back in 2013, when her inventive and critically acclaimed major label debut, ‘True Romance’, went on to sell badly. But instead, she’s liberated. Only months later, a song she had written for Icona Pop quite symbolically toppled ‘Blurred Lines’ from the UK number one slot, and sat atop a lofty success of over 400,000 sales and counting. Then earlier in 2014, she co-wrote and featured on ‘Fancy’ with Iggy Aza ...

Is it the end of Facebook?

Sep 26 2014 11:05am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Predicting the end of Facebook in 2014 feels reckless.

According to the latest data from the Pew Research Centre, 71% of online adults use Facebook. Considering 73% use a social networking site, that’s pretty much: all of us.The startup world is full of people pitching and failing the next big thing. Two days ago, though, something ...

Sep 24 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Last week Beyoncé was caught enhancing a photo she posted on Instagram, and this wasn’t the first time. Back in April, Bey was accused of slimming down her thighs in a photo she posted of herself golfing in a bikini. She might be the one in the hot seat right now, but Beyoncé is far from the first and only celeb to have edited an Instagram photo. Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian ('memba that post-gym photo?), and Miranda Kerr are also repeat offenders (to name a ...
