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."

This marginally talented nut case can have anything she wants ANYTHING....that's how much money she has. And she has job security. Surely her fan base will support her for years to come....look at Madonna. So the question is: Why the hell does she bite her nails when she hasn't got a THING to worry about??

My gosh you people bitch a lot.

TMZ, I challenge you to run a week of good stories that don't include snide remarks and insults about famous people.

You're losing readers and gaining rebellious delinquents. There are plenty of websites for them.

So, the challenge is yours. 1 week..stop bashing, stop insulting, stop insinuating...1 week of great stories that nobody else is covering.

Can you do it?

I don't know if her supporters see the same thing I see. This girl can BARELY hold it together to do an interview, how is she not going to have a breakdown during a taping??? She is being exploited, plain and simple, with Simon jumping on the train. She won't see a dime of the money she'll make, and all simon cares about are ratings. People will watch to see when--- not IF, but WHEN---- she loses it on tv. I wouldn't want to be judged by a bipolar mess and a cutter with a coke problem. Choosing Demi and Britney is the worst decision ever.

TMZ can not figure out why this young lady chews her nails? Really TMZ?? Maybe she's a nervous wreck because ever since her battle with mental illness you do nothing but pick on her about every stupid little minor detail! Is it your goal in life to destroy people with mental issues? This site is really starting to resemble Perez Hilton and his never ending bullying! Why so much negative reporting Harvey? Everyone miserable in your office?

Leave.... Her.... Alone.... Already.
Really TMZ and others? I don't own a single song of her's yet why dog on her? She's done very well for herself, don't believe she's all that talented but why is most everyone chopping her down?
She's so far had a charmed life, yet worked for it, along with odd as well as tough times.
I hope she succeeds. Why not haters?

WHERE are her "handlers"/stylist??? Aren't they the ones that are suppose to give a "celebrity" the final "once over" before sending them out in public? Doesn't speak very highly of the "forces" behind ANY celebrity that is presented like that... unfortunately it is a CLEAR indication that she is/may not be as "STABLE" as everyone says... her eyes are BLANK... she's obviously medicated...

Britney has always been a nail biter. I've got a poster of her from like 11 years ago and they're bit to the bone. she usually gets acrylics I'm surprised she didn't for this.
