Britney Spears Breaks Under Pressure!
She’s set to make $15million as an X Factor judge, but Britney Spears is already showing signs of anguish. During the announcement of her new gig with co-judges Demi Lovato, LA Reid and Simon Cowell last week (14 May), her anxiety was obvious.
“No one was more nervous to see and hear reassembled pop princess Britney Spears than Britney herself at least judging from her chewed up and bloody fingernails,” TMZ reported. Back in 2008, Brit made a resolution to give up her nervous habit. She said, “Next year, I have to learn to stop biting my nails! I would like to stop worrying so much, because I worry all the time.” Four years later, she’s still fighting her demons.
The criticism started as soon as Brit’s name was floated for the job and after the formal announcement, The Sun wrote that Brit’s cream-coloured dress “hugged her lumpy legs”. Stuff reported that all over the web, Brit’s legs were described as “bruised, dimpled or fat in hundreds
of fevered online debates.” Singer John Legend told E! News, “It’s interesting when people you know who are judging singing competitions when they aren’t really singers.” His comments came on the heels of America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern saying that Brit “still thinks the earth is flat... I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is.”
All for the cash?
Brit’s father and fiancé handle her finances, could they have pushed her into X Factor for the cash? Or is it all part of Simon’s plan? TMZ reported, “Simon Cowell isn’t bothered one bit at the prospect of Britney Spears falling apart... insisting whatever happens will be ratings gold!”
