Britney Spears

Chewing Gum During

'X Factor' Interview

5/15/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0515_britney_spears-ipadBritney Spears spoke to FOX cameras before she took the stage at yesterday's Upfronts ... and she did so while chewing a piece of gum. Ding dang, y'all!!!

Britney ditched the gum by the time she went in front of the advertisers ... so clearly someone caught a glimpse of Brit's red carpet faux pas and corrected it. 

For what it's worth ... Simon Cowell was chewing away too!

The gum wasn't the only thing Britney was chompin' on during yesterday's festivities -- Brit took a few bites out of her fingernails, too.

Ya can't simply replace Paula Abdul, she was made for judging competitions and offering her sweet supportive advice. Britney looks like she's there for $$

its pretty sad that TMZ is trying to make news out of Britney chewing gum. I can't wait for Britney to let all you people down at TMZ after she rocks her X-Factor posistion.

Hey the guy in the background to the left of Simon Cowell's head at 0:10 seconds (and more) is ALSO chewing gum.

seems to me that someone there was handing out samples of gum or something
