Last week we heard that Britney Spears signed her deal to judge The X Factor and that official confirmation was forthcoming. Well, here we are a week later and still … nada. Simon Cowell called in to TMZ to reveal that he really, really wants Britney to join the show … suggesting that a deal STILL has not been struck. Sigh. That said, Cowell sounded confident that Britney would be joining the show and revealed that he will know for sure if she is in or out within the week. HMMM. Click below to hear from Simon himself this latest update on the Britney/X Factor front.
Simon Cowell has finally admitted … he’s GUNNING HARD to get Britney Spears as a judge on the next season of “X Factor.” Cowell just called in to “TMZ Live” … and told us, “I would love to have her on the show … I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to.” Simon said he couldn’t reveal too much about the negotiations … but did seem optimistic and hinted that he would have an answer from Britney’s camp within the week.
Blah. For the sake of my sanity, this deal better happen. There’s been so much talk about Britney on The X Factor that despite my best efforts not to get excited … I’m freakin’ excited. It pains me to hear Simon say, “Who knows we may surprise you and it may not be her” because then I’d have to go apeshizz. We should know soon … for sure … one way or the other … and til then … we wait. Still. Ack.
