Britney Spears
will NOT be a judge on "X Factor" next season -- and it's entirely her doing ... TMZ has learned.
 
We have unimpeachable sources who tell us Britney loves the show but wants to focus on her music ... which she is doing right now.  Britney is in the studio recording her 8th album, with some help from Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy, the brains behind Kanye and Jay-Z's "N****s in Paris."

One of our sources tells us ... "Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music."

We're told after she completes the album, Britney is seriously considering going on tour again.

Walking away from $15 mil ...Yeah, she's that rich.

good riddance Twitney Spears...she is/was so annoying and fake and overly gushy, then at times acted like a wannabe Simon Cowell.

I hope she makes another album. I've always liked her music, it's upbeat and just fun. Beats that rap crap any day.

...Let's get real here, she was "cut" from the show, but instead of tarnishing her image, they told her to say she left on her own terms...c'mon, .I heard the sound of crickets after she finished each of her 15 million dollars worth of singing critic's........Typical of these spoiled brats that attain super celebrity status and become super wealthy.....take a look at Lindsay Lohan....

Thank God...and why is she always so bewildered and confused by everything? The faces shes made over the duration of the show always look like there's a bum onstage trying to show her his jimmy. I honestly; I think shock therapy would help her a bit.

Looks like an ad in BILLBOARD is in order?
Why doesn't SIMON and all those people in charge of getting judges ask us the fans who we want?
Ha? ASK US!

And yet another example of someone letting Britney come out on top. It was common knowledge Simon was going to fire her

If she loves Music so much,then why not retire so we don't have to listen to that crap she tries to pass off as Music?

Britney tanked on X Factor. Not buying the story she quit. Her suggestions to the performers were weak and uninspired. She really appears to be severely medicated. She's boring.

X-Factor judge quitting it says on the front page & then runs a pic of Simon with a couple of his girlfriends on each arm. Then we click on the story & it says it's not Simon...it's Britney. Aha! The old bait & switch! Supermarket tabloid stuff!
