It appears Britney fired herself before they could get to her. With all the rumors that Simon Cowell was going to give her a pink slip, the 31 year old decided to save him the trouble, and save herself the embarrassment and quit.
She released a statement to the press,
“I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season.
I had 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,” she said. “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.”
Difficult decision my ass! Anyway…..
Rumors are flying that she is possibly heading over to Vegas to do a Celine Dion type of act. Dion got paid $100 million a year to do her show at the Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace. Spears and her team are hoping to get a similar act going.
If you watched the 2nd Season of “The X-factor” then you know that Spears was not worth the $15 million they paid her, something that Simon Cowell realized very quickly. There were reports that she messed up some of her scripted lines and many times appeared to be disconnected from the show. Audiences must have realized this because the season finale was down 18 percent from the first season.
Now that Spears is done, people will be caring less about what Britney will be going to do, and more about who Simon will choose for the next judges. Don’t forget, LA Reid is out too, leaving the show with two vacant chairs.
Cowell has his work cut out for him.Read more...
The whole tearful admission to Seacrest was reportedly all a farce.
J. Lo WANTED MORE DOUGH!
Jennifer Lopez who was getting what was originally thought to be $12 million but was later verified that she was earning $15 million and she wanted a raise.
TVST=> Was she jelly over Britney’s pay check from Simon Cowell?
She wanted a $2 million dollar raise and Fox flat out said no. They didn’t even counter.
Then they decided just not to renew Steven Tylers option.
The whole, “After some long hard thoughts, I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go my mistress “American Idol before” she boils the rabbit” was bull. The decision was made for him. It appears that the mistress dropped him first. The decision to go on tour with Aerosmith is a lot easier when you compare it to being unemployed.
Yo Dawg – Randy better get his resume updated and start friending people on Linked-In because he is right there on the cutting edge. Rumor has it that he’s next. They are looking at revamping Idol completely and leaving just Ryan Seacrest. For now, Randy is playing the role as supportive co-judge and 100% Pro-Idol and it’s choices. In the wake of the Lopez-Tyler booting he says,
“Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I’ve worked with. I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life.”
I would actually hate to see the Rand-man go. Hopefully he can hang on long enough to fall in sync with the new judges. Possible talks now are: Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion.Read more...
