Britney Spears

'X Factor' Announcement Was a Bloody Nail-biter

5/15/2012 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bloody nails belonging to Britney Spears.
No one was more nervous to see and hear reassembled pop princess Britney Spears at her big $15 million "X Factor" announcement  yesterday than Britney herself ... at least judging from her chewed up and bloody fingernails.

Despite the unwavering support from her new boss Simon Cowell, Britney seems to be taking out her pre-show anxiety on her cuticles ... a problem she's been dealing with for years.  

In fact, Britney made a New Year's resolution to drop the habit in 2008, saying ... "Next year, I have to learn to stop biting my nails! I would like to stop worrying so much, because I worry all the time."

Her disgusting hands match her smelly, disgusting feet, just ask the folks on plane who asked her to put her shoes back on because they stunk so bad. There is nothing attractive about this no talent lip syncer. Stop throwing money at her.

Brit is so awesome, been a fan for years.

She looks great.

Wish she could stop worrying, she's got all the finances in the world, and plenty of support from friends and family that love her.

Don't worry girl! Enjoy this great new chapeter in your life, you've earned it!

LOVE YA BRITNEY!!

Why didn't her therapy include treatment for this truly ugly habit? Does either of her sons chew his nails yet? Can therapists in California fix anybody?

Every time I look at her, I feel slightly disturbed at how dead her eyes look. She's just... not there. They must have her on some pretty hard core medications. It's obvious.

Greedy bastards. Let this poor near idiot, lip-syncher just retire. She's not all there in her mind. Just let her watch cartoons and eat nachos all day.

Nail biting is one of THE most disgusting habits to me. I don't want to see it or hear it. Ugh.

Poor girl has been judged so much that she's a nervous wreck. Of course she's made a fortune being out there in a position to be judged, but we should have been kinder. She's a delicate soul inside.

Uh, no, TMZ, that's not nail biting. It's an anxiety disorder that can be a form of OCD called dermatillomania or skin picking. Notice that the blood is on the side of her finger, not the part of the nail that gets chewed by nailbiters. I have the same problem with skin picking that she does, probably the only thing we have in common.

So, she's a nervous wreck! STILL. She is not stable, look in her eyes.
