Simon Cowell Worried Britney Spears Won't Be Taken Seriously on 'X Factor (US)'


The creator of the singing competition has reportedly rejected the 'Me Against the World' singer as a judge on the show because he's afraid that she can't deliver good advice.

Britney Spears may not join "The X Factor (US)" after all. Following reports that she's offered $10 million to be a new judge of the show's sophomore season, Simon Cowell is now said to have changed his mind about signing the 30-year-old mother of two to be a new judge.

"Simon's worried she won't be able to deliver good advice, and he's afraid contestants won't take her seriously," a source dished on why Cowell rejected the idea of having Spears on the show's judging panel. The source additionally told Us Weekly that the British producer doesn't want his program's brand to be associated with the "I Wanna Go" songstress.

As for the criteria of a proper judge for the U.S. version of "The X Factor", the source claimed that Cowell prefers someone who has a little more experience in the music industry. "He'll probably go more in the direction of Mariah Carey or Janet Jackson," the source revealed.

In early March, it was reported that Spears was close to sign a $10 million deal to join "X Factor (US)". Later in the same month, however, it's said that the former Mouseketeer wanted bigger paycheck and was sticking to her demand of $16 million.

As of late, a so-called insider told HollywoodLife.com that discussions with the "Toxic" songstress are "pretty much dead." Rihanna is thus mentioned as a possible candidate to fill one of the vacant spots, which were left by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
