Britney Spears Confirms X Factor Exit

by at . Comments

After weeks of speculation, Britney Spears has confirmed what we already knew - that she's quitting The X Factor after her first and only season last fall.

"I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season," Brit tells ET Online in a statement, adding that Fox was informed of her decision.

"I had such 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."

Spears is reportedly hard at work on her eighth studio album, with her manager, Adam Leber, Tweeting, "It's a little premature to give details on album 8."

"I know a lot of you are rabid for info but @britneyspears has only had a few sessions ... I will say we had an incredible session with @EsterDean and @Hit_Boy. Great start."

Can't wait. Or blame her from bailing on that sinking ship.

As for whether Spears is also going to quit Jason Trawick in 2013, it looks like she's on the verge of dumping him as conservator if nothing else.

I want it to stay how it is. Simon Cowell, L.A Reid, Demi Lovato, and Britney Spears. It'd be cool if there were six judges. The four of them and Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Three on one side and three on the other, sitting across from each other and when someone is singing, the three jugdes who isn't facing the stage, but is facing the crowd and three judges turns around in the spinning chairs. :)
