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."

For a mother, any mother, to lose custody of her children is indicative of a very serious issue with that person. For a mother who also happens to have millions of dollars for legal teams to lose custody of her children and subsequently her estate is a staggering reflection of her mental state. She needs to be out of the limelight and getting the help she so desperately needs for her sake as well as that of her young children. Where are the people around her who give a damn?

When you see someone bite their nails so low that they bleed they have a serious problem and need help.They can not do it on their own and really need help.I know I had a friend that did that and she is not here anymore.She did not drink or do drugs she had hypertension and high blood pressure as you can tell by Britney's eyes.

I feel sorry for her.. you think if she was mentally unstable.. regardless if she is on medication, her family wouldnt put her through the pressure.. But I guess her family wants to keep up the lifestyle and she is the gravy train.. healthy or not..

Simon just hired her and Demi because them two are both diagnosed with bipolar and are the biggest trainwrecks, shame on Simon. He will do anything to get ratings.

It's like she is the Weekend At Bernie's Dead guy her family is parading around for its own greedy benefit. She has to support a lot of people you know; Kfed and his 3 other kids and his two baby mama's, her parents, her sister and her sister's kid, and her two sons and her new fiancé. So, trot her out for a quick 15 million and ditto a previous poster that said her eyes are DEAD, she is NOT ok and if her family had any dignity they would let her retire. This won't end well, but the new fiance needs to make a few bucks now that he is a co conservator with her father. SAD SAD SAD! LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!

All you have to do was lip synch concerts for boatloads of $$$$$ all this other crap shows that you're trying a person with issues and you doing drugs definitely did not help. You need to thanks the stars because you're the luckiest person on the planet to still be relevant.

Britney's handlers should very worried about her being around an addict like Demi. Simon should be worried about Demi's stability - that girl has been in and out of rehab so many times.
