Britney Spears Offered $10M for to Join ‘X Factor’

Britney Spears is coming to the X Factor y’all. The singer was reportedly offered $10 mil to become a judge on the second season of reality show.

Many wondered who Cowell would choose to sit at the judge’s table after he and the producers fired judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger earlier this year. There were also rumors that Janet Jackson and Avril Lavigne were both being considered for a spot on the show as well.

I’m fascinated by Britney,” Cowell said in a conference call with the press last week, acknowledging the possibility that Spears could join his show. “The fact that she’s one of the most talked about — not just pop stars, but people — in the world today means that you’ve got this star power. She’s still hot, she’s still having hit records, and she’s still controversial. There’s a reason for that.”

The X Factor will return to television this fall.
