X Factor to TMZ

'Play Nice'

Simon Cowell and Britney Spears want TMZ to know ... despite our stories about Britney having a tough time judging "X Factor"  ... they couldn't be happier. Let's be real -- Britney says she's talking to Harvey in the video, but she's really talkin' to you.

As TMZ first reported, Britney walked off during shooting on Thursday ... leaving four contestants to sing to an empty chair. Yesterday Britney took one short break during taping, but was otherwise much more outgoing than on Day 1.

We starting poking around late yesterday because we heard rumblings that Britney might be having second thoughts, but she and Simon want to make it clear -- Britney is going nowhere.

We gotta ask ...

Please somebody get her off the media .
I only can hate her because the Media tries to tell me that she is glamarous and sexy and in amazing shape
come on how can I not get sick of this lies
She can't dance anymore , she can't sing anymore , even the best styling doesn't make her look fab
This Britney is not the Britney I knew come her dancing to Beyonce and you know Britney is not worth her money she was entertaining with 15 but looks even more avarage as an regular 30 years old woman now
In this shot she even looks the same age as Pamala Anderson

The type of scrutiny TMZ has been putting on Britney Spears ever since she announced she was going to be an X Factor judge is exactly the type of scrutiny that led to her major meltdown in 2008.

I had been particularly proud of TMZ for not posting negative things about Britney Spears for years, giving her a chance to get her bearings. Why start again now? Let her be.

Still doesn't change that Simon is thinking with the worm between his legs. I can tell he has that Stifler's MILF fetish.

Here's an easy and kind concept; quit with the belittling and berating comments and "articles" and show some support and compassion. It appears to be hard for TMZ and many others but it REALLY is easy.

It's Simon's show, it's Simon's $$, it's Simon's decision how he wants to run his show & how much he want to pay his judges! It's unfortunate that those that are not wealthy or do not have a lavish life style tend to try & take down or trash those who do..... TMZ no longer has Lindsey to try & tear down, therefore, TMZ has chosen to try & tear down Brittney who's only trying to do what many other judges have done on other shows & that's to boost her career & image.... TMZ can say what they want but the message was to Harvey for he's the one that gives the green light to print stories/gossip about anyone.....Again, 'no hate & no envy' for those who have more than others!!
