X Factor to TMZ

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 ...

Britney looks like an old woman in this pic. Maybe just a bad angle.

I really thought for a moment that was Vince Neil from Motley Crue.

Especially the frozen photos of her.

Yikes.

Sorry Brit.

So Simon and Britney, if you read TMZ, maybe you can tell me this:

Why do you have Britney showing half of her breasts when you try to appeal to teenagers???

I am totally confused.

Mark my words also, in a couple years, your show will be filling the morning hours babying sitting pre-school kids. No one has an ounce of intelligent would care to hear Britney's and Demi's critics to any contestants. And how are they going to mentor the contestants when they go on for the 2nd half of the show? Telling them to strip naked to get votes???

LOL LOL LOL!!

Look at these photos of Vince Neil and then look again at the frozen photo of Brit. I really did for a split second think it was Vince Neil when I first saw this posted story. Once again...sorry Brit.

Britney's breakdown basically made TMZ what it is today so they are desperate for round 2.

If Simon's pick of judges is as sharp as his fashion sense, then it is an obvious failure.

I am not sure whose breasts are more distracting in this show down!

TMZ, you are blurring the line between reportage and provocation. Exercise some restraint and honor boundaries.

TMZ, you removed two of my comments.
If you start removing peoples comments because you don't like their content, those people will get pizzed and stop coming to your site. All you will be left with are the sycophants and PR people leaving positive posts for their clients.
It's a slippery slope you don't want to start sliding down.

Dear lord. It appears that Simon may have had too many botox and/or filler injections, and perhaps a little too much correction of a smoker's frown. If it isn't already too late, Simon could be mistaken one day as Joan Rivers' and The Joker's love child.
