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.

Untalented , uneducated , lip sync queen. Her career has been a sham since day one. It's Britney bitch.......I don't think so. It's Bye Bye Bitch. The only people who are fans of this idiot are mommy's little basement dwelling morons who can't even work a part time job long enough to move out...

I thought it was a joke to have her as a judge. She is the most overproduced, auto-tuned entertainer, not singer, but entertainer out there. having her as a judge was a joke and publicity stunt from the get go. "I thought you were a little pitchy." WTF?! How would she know?!

She added nothing besides dumb faces and fake smiles. She never seemed comfortable, which in turn made everyone else feel the same way.

I wonder if it also has to do with the rumor that Simon wanted her off her meds so she would be more entertaining?

I think it was a good prep for her to make her come back come. She seemed afraid of being social after her break down. I think she's ready to come back

Smart move from Brit, Jamie and the rest of her team. One season of judging the X-factor is good public exposure and good experience cred however more than one season just screams "retired pop singer". If she wants to stay relevent as a performance artist 1 is certainly enough. I highly doubt she got "fired" like people are saying - her and Simon had good chemistry.
