Britney Spears turns down $10m ‘X Factor’ offer
London: Britney Spears has reportedly rejected a 10-million-dollar offer to join the next season of ‘The X Factor’.
According to a knowledgeable individual in Spears’ camp, reports this week that the pop star was considering a 10-million-dollar offer to judge or host next autumn’s season of ‘The X Factor’ are out of date.
The 30-year-old singer allegedly rejected the offer three weeks ago and is instead thinking about an offer to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel like Celine Dion.
Although TV executives previously declined to comment on the matter, but insiders say the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker is keen to join the hit show in theory.
There are two vacant spaces to fill alongside Simon Cowell and LA Reid after Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were fired.
Sources claim that Spears has her eye on the job.
“The timing is perfect. Brit would love to connect with fans on a weekly basis and loves working on TV after several guest appearances on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother,” the Daily Mail quoted one insider close to the singer as telling the Sunday World.
Almost 10,000 fans have voted for her to appear as a judge on fansite breathheavy.com.
Back in 2008, she had performed ‘Womanizer’ on the British version of ‘The X Factor’ but was heavily criticised for miming.
