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.

Simon was chewing gum like a crazy person, looks like he's already terrified of how Britney is going to respond and react.

Britney looks so nervous and absolutely TERRIFIED. Her poor nails said enough judging by those pictures. She looks like she wants to kill herself already. LET THIS GIRL REST HER MIND, YA'LL, SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE!!

Oh, and there is no chemistry between any them.

Britney reminded me of Courtney Love here. Yikes. They all seemed irritated and not happy to be there. They're making ME feel nervous!

Wow. Britney is as dumb as a stump. Sorry I won't be watching, but I got enough of dumb blondes with Anna Nicole Smith. I'll pass.

So whats the big deal having a fresh breath. She stopped chewing when asked a question. And Simon was chomping away . Media is nutz making a big to do about nothing. How about the positive side she handled the interviewer question well. She seemed put together in her thoughts and on her A game. Well done Brit.

Money, no matter how much you have, cannot buy you class. Gum chomping pig with chewed down fingernails or older Lothario with shirt open to his navel thinking he's still a young stud.
