by at . Comments

Now that it's official, Howard Stern is excited for Britney Spears to serve as an X Factor judge. But not for the reasons Simon Cowell is likely hoping for.

"I think it’s a wonderful decision," Stern said today at a New York's Friars Club press conference. "Britney still thinks the earth is flat... I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing. As far as any real criticism, I think Simon and LA Reid will do that. As far as criticism, I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit...

"I'll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely."

Stern himself will enter the world of reality TV judging on Monday when he debuts as an America's Got Talent panelist. Which of these new judges are you more excited about?

@JC: No, struggling with a mental illness like bipolar doesn't automatically make one crazy, even if they did at some point have a breakdown. Just like having a physical illness and being hospitalized for it doesn't automatically mean a person is going to die or that they'll be too weak to do anything for the rest of their life.

"treating you like a dumb crazy little girl just because you're a blonde woman who had a breakdown and who struggles with mental illness" ummmm @Blaize, isn't that the exact definition of "crazy little girl"

Also it sounds like he's just saying this because she's now on a rival show. I.E. he sounds like a ratings whore =). Man, and i used to like this guy too, lol

Not a fan of brit. Stern's comments are pretty funny yet at the same time pretty mean. In the world we live in now, his shock jock shtick (wow, tongue twister) is old and outdated. Idk

Even though I'm not personally a fan of Britney Spears, I feel bad for her. It must suck to have a whole world of strangers treating you like a dumb crazy little girl just because you're a blonde woman who had a breakdown and who struggles with mental illness. It's unfair and demeaning.
