For years, America has been judging Britney Spears. Now it’s time for the pop princess to judge America.
First she was too young, then she was too old. First she was too skinny, then she was too fat. From that school girl outfit to her “virtuous” relationship with Justin Timberlake to her 27 marriages to her bald-headed, umbrella-toting window smash to her autotuned voice, that girl hasn’t been able to take a pee without someone judging her (especially if that pee was barefoot in a gas station bathroom).
So, after years of being picked apart, why wouldn’t she want to flip the script and fill the empty chair at The X Factor…?!
Simon Cowell’s baby, The X Factor, suffered from lackluster ratings in its first year and so in true cutthroat Cowell fashion, he got rid of judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger off the bat. Now, who could replace them and help the show obtain American Idol-caliber ratings?
Well, we all know there are two things America loves: a hot mess and a good comeback. The media has been reporting the rumors for months that Britney may be replacing the nixed pop judges. I don’t know how well she can judge talent, but she’s been surrounded by it her whole life, starting as a little girl on the Mickey Mouse Club. And whether or not she can sing herself has always been debatable, but either way, she made herself an iconic fixture in our world, and there’s no denying homegirl definitely has her own “X factor”.
After months of negotiating, it’s looking like she has settled at a mere $15 mil paycheck, and will join current judges Cowell and Epic Records CEO LA Reid. Rumors have also been swirling that Demi Lovato will be joining the judges’ panel this season, a fact which was confirmed at the Fox Upfronts on Monday.
I don’t know who I trust these days to judge talent in America, so why not Britney Spears?! For those of you out there who have been wondering why you aren’t famous yet but crazies like Britney Spears are, now’s your chance to face her head on.
Whether or not you love her or hate her, it’s her turn to love or hate you. And she gets to tell you to your face. In front of millions of people. It’s karma, bitch.
