Britney Spears: Playing Hardball, Asking For $20 Million to Judge The X Factor?

by at . Comments

Britney Spears has rejected a $10 million offer to judge the next season of The X Factor, and is angling for $20 million instead, The Wrap reports.

The $10 million offer was negged weeks ago, according to an individual in Spears' camp. She's looking for more money - or another option entirely.

The 30-year-old singer is instead thinking about an offer to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel in the fall, a la Celine Dion. Hmm ...

What Fox has shelled out for The X Factor judges so far pales in comparison to what Spears is looking for. Paula Abdul was paid $2.5 million for the last season.

She was also fired, as were Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones.

The X Factor is already recording its audition phase, but won’t need the judges until the end of May, and the show is said to be desperately seeking a big name.

Fox won't comment. Spears won't comment. Simon Cowell's camp won't comment. Fox's upfronts are May 14, so look for ... something to happen by then.

Would Britney be a good X Factor judge?

I absolutely love him, too. I am on a siltleate, which gets both east and west coast feeds, so although I live on the west coast, I get to see him at 9:30. Anytime anyone is over at that time I get them to at least watch his monologue, and they all laugh like Hell. I was hesitant to watch his show bc I didn't find any humor in his character on Drew Carey and the only movie I have seen of his was a drama the pot one I can't think of the name, so I didn't really see him as a comedian. Shows to no how little I know about him. He MUST have a stand-up background. Anyone know?

Brittney cannot sing, if it wasn't for all the instruments in the background you could not even hear her whiny little voice. She should pay them for trying to make her a judge.
