Britney Spears walked off the set of The X Factor on Monday after a drag queen showed up doing an apparently awful rendition of Spears' "(You Drive Me) Crazy." How come?

Spears explained today that she was just following the instructions of Demi Lovato.. who is incidentally 11 years her junior.

Lovato - who herself reacted unfavorably to a rap about bath salts this week - apparently told Spears during the performance: "Let's go." Spears then followed orders, departing the the set and returning later to tell the performer that she liked the tribute - but it wasn't X Factor material.

For her part, Lovato said she felt bad for the singer, who was apparently on the floor crying after the performance because he thought he nailed it. Sorry dude. Not the case.

It does take some guts to dress in drag and perform a Britney Spears song in front of Britney Spears. But you should probably go into it expecting a walk-off. Or at least a great deal of mockery.

UPDATE: Chimed in L.A. Reid to a Fox affiliate: "Oh, my god, it was just horrible. He thought he was going through. He thought that the cheers were because he was doing such a great job, when the truth is he was horrific. We just couldn't take it anymore."

Was Tom Cruise totally blind-sided by his divorce from Katie Holmes? Looks like the actress may have planned the whole thing in secret!

E! Online is reporting that Holmes used a secret disposable cell phone to contact her lawyers about the divorce plans. Not only that, but the actress apparently purchased the Manhattan apartment where she is now living with her daughter Suri before the divorce news broke.

Katie Holmes, Pants

With their divorce settlement agreed upon very quickly, this is all looking to be very calculated on the part of Holmes. Holmes even spent part of every month in New York for the last two years, a requirement to obtain residency there!

Did Tom know about the plans, and the two decided to keep it from the media together? Or did Katie hit him over the back of the head with it after everything was already in motion? What do you think happened?
