Britney Spears: Playing Hardball, Asking For $20 Million to Judge The X Factor?
Britney Spears has rejected a $10 million offer to judge the next season of The X Factor, and is angling for $20 million instead, The Wrap reports.
The $10 million offer was negged weeks ago, according to an individual in Spears’ camp. She’s looking for more money – or another option entirely.
The 30-year-old singer is instead thinking about an offer to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel in the fall, a la Celine Dion. Hmm …
What Fox has shelled out for The X Factor judges so far pales in comparison to what Spears is looking for. Paula Abdul was paid $2.5 million for the last season.
She was also fired, as were Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones.
The X Factor is already recording its audition phase, but won’t need the judges until the end of May, and the show is said to be desperately seeking a big name.
Fox won’t comment. Spears won’t comment. Simon Cowell’s camp won’t comment. Fox’s upfronts are May 14, so look for … something to happen by then.
Would Britney be a good X Factor judge?
