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.

Britney looks beautiful, spoke eloquently and is chewing her gum so discreetly you wouldn't notice unless you're looking for it. Simon on the other hand is chewing it like a slovenly pig. BritBrit is gonna knock this out of the park! It's obvious TMZ are Brit Brit haterz & livin' in 2008 still. Get over it Harvey - she just made $15Mil because she IS the XFactor - LOVE YOU BRITNEY!

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Britney's still mental. Big surprise. She chews gum, we get it.

Where's the story about LILO's horrific performance on GLEE? The story which tells how Lohan cannot even convincingly play herself on television?

Is TMZ getting a cut from Simon for all these Britney stories? Its the only reason I can come up with for why they are continually posting total nonsense. Oh wow Britney chews gum, Oh wow Britney bites her nails, Oh wow, Britney has sex twice a day.

Simon was chompping on gum as well. Why does Britney get trashed for it? Fresher breath right? At least she chews with her mouth closed. Simon was chewing with mouth wide open.
