Britney Spears

Braves the Heat

for 'X Factor' Taping

9/15/2012 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915-tmz-britney-spears-wmBritney Spears had to endure the brutal Southern California heatwave yesterday as the singer-turned-judge taped several scenes for "X-Factor" in Malibu.

We're told Brit was on location in the Bu for two days braving the 100-degree heat that has been beating down on SoCal lately. She taped one-on-one segments with her chosen group of contestants ... where she decided who to keep and who to send home.

She was joined by Will.I.Am  -- who she invited to be her celebrity mentor for her team of "X" hopefuls.

Really? Brave the heat. What a sad ass story. I work in this heat day in and day out in the valley far from the coast. How about Caltrans or city workers? Why is their no stories of them bearing the heat in SoCal? What a joke.

That was not a Britney quote about the heat. Far as I know, she's not complained once about the heat. However, if I had to work in 100 deg. heat, I'd be real vocal about it, after fainting. Yeah, I'm sorry for all the workers and military people who work in the heat. Some are more used to it, and have skin types that take the heat pretty well. You know, that is why people have darker skin, larger noses, biologically adapted to living in hot places like Africa, middle east, Greece, Italy, etc. Some of us can't help passing out in the heat. Now, Britney, as I said, is not on record complaining, although she'd be within her rights to do so. This show always puts the contestants outside for their performances. It's rough on everybody. Not sure it's the best plan by the show. They'd perform best when comfortable.

I admire the way everyone takes every opportunity to jump on Britney and criticize her so, even when she's just sitting in a garden doing her job. The girl seems very serious about work.

That Cuckoo Stabilizer meds that she takes don't help with the heat. It makes you feel even hotter.
About Brits many faces, that happens when people have ADHD, DDFGD, DDD, DHD, or the most common in most people ADD.

Oh please. I live in SoCal and we are in the midst of a heatwave. It's 102 degrees right now. If you live by the ocean or a beach it's a least 10 to 15 degrees cooler.

If she taped her segments at the place in the pic up top she was not hurting. By the beach plus she was in the shade. She had it good.

The girl is from Louisiana. She can do heat. It's 98 degrees with 98% humidity six months of the year there. A piddly 100 in a dry area is a snap.
