Howard Stern On Britney Spears’ “X Factor” Job
It’s finally Official: Britney Spears will be on X Factor. As previously reported, FOX will be paying Brit Brit $15 million to be a judge on the show for season 2.
Via E! News, “The contract is signed,” reveals source close to the star. “There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on. It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.” — but according to Howard Stern, it’s not worth it.
“I think it’s a wonderful decision. Britney still thinks the earth is flat,” Stern reportedly joked at at a press conference at the New York Friars Club today.
“I can’t imagine… I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing,” he also said to the crowd. “As far as any real criticism, I think Simon [Cowell] and LA Reid will do that. I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit.”
So … will he watch?
“I’ll tune in to see what kind of trainwreck she is, absolutely,” he added. Who’s with him?
Howard Stern will begin his role as judge next week when “America’s Got Talent” premieres on NBC.
