Britney Spears has managed to pull herself up from a downward spiral, but staying out of the lime light for all the wrong reasons may have gone all wrong for the princess of pop. According to sources, Spears was given the boot from Fox’s singing competition show X-Factor because her more mature personality was not a good fit for the series.
It appears producers of the show, including Simon Cowell, are unhappy with the singers performance on Season 2 of the show. A source told Us Weekly “Cowell was expecting to get this crazy Britney Spears that people saw unravel over the past few years. But he actually got the boring Britney that no one had ever really wanted to watch.”
The relationship between Spears and producers reportedly turned sour after the pop star spent the season offering only shallow one sentence comments on performers and half claps.
Spears departure from X-Factor comes after only one season with the talent search show. Her appearance was suppose to boost rating, an expectation which garnered her a whopping $15 million for the judging seat position. Ratings were greate in the beginning, but now it seems she may have not live up to her hype
Her ouster may have come as a surprise. In November, Spears told members of the press she expected to return for Season 3. “Yes, I definitely will,” she said at the time.
On the other hand, Britney Spears firing has not been officially confirmed by Fox. According to Huffington Post, a spokesperson for “The X Factor” claims the reports are merely speculation saying in an email statement, “No one has discussed next years judging panel yet – any reports otherwise are complete speculation.”
