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.

I'm glad she's leaving. Now, she's can go back to lip-singing.

OH DARN! I was SERIOUSLY hoping it was Demi that was leaving the show. I got SO fed up with her mouthy, petulant behavior this season. I thought she was rude & bratty during the whole show & if I was Simon, I would fire her! Her behavior really took away from my ability to enjoy the show. Simon was incredibly gracious to her; I kept waiting for him to slam her back in the way that she deserved, but for some reason he did not & I think she owes him a great debt of gratitude. Any other "boss" would have sent her packing on the spot for such insubordination.Hopefully she will grow up before the next season. If she doesn't, I probably won't watch.She may be a "star" but she acted like a l0 year old BRAT! Wish he'd hire an adult to fill her seat.

Brittney was able to keep old Simon on a happier note! She did an excellent job and the contestants loved her, glad she has made her way back in the public eyes.

She never look interested in the show and the judge job.She was the judge that talk less and gave less advice to the contestant.Demmi was the best judge by far this season.Please bring Paula Abdul back to the show .

Could have something to do with saving face as her addition to the show hasn't helped the show gain any more viewers than it had before. Maybe they told her she had the option to quit or be fired.
