Yesterday it was officially announced that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will become the new judges on the The X Factor. When Simon Cowell asked Britney to share her feelings about being on the show this season, she said she was “excited,” but her demeanor showed no signs of enthusiasm.
Earlier this morning, Perez Hilton chatted with B96/Chicago about the new X Factor cast and Britney’s plans for herself.
“Britney showed up at an event in New York City yesterday to officially announce that she was joining the show, and there was a moment when Simon Cowell gave her the opportunity to speak, and she was very brief. She spoke for about 10 seconds and said ‘Back to you Simon.’ It was obviously scripted for her, and I was a little concerned,” Perez reported.
Brit knows that this is a huge gig, so she wants to look her best and maintain good health while on the show. Perez revealed, “Britney is determined now to get in better shape now that she’s going to be on X Factor full-time. One of her demands is that her her dressing room is filled with healthy stuff like prunes and figs.”
This opportunity is positive for Britney, and singing competition TV shows have proven to bring stars like Jennifer Lopez back into the spotlight and help their new music and tours become more successful.
What does does Perez think about her abilities as a judge? When discussing Howard Stern’s debut on America’s Got Talent last night, he said “I think that he’ll do a much better job that Briney Spears is going to on X Factor.”
