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.

Who cares as long as she makes her cash let her be. BTW her music still sales she's in the billboard top ten so keep fussing her all you want she's not going anywhere.

Good for her - must make the gossip mongers seem silly as they were predicting that Simon was going to fire her. She did a good job on the show, but will make more money with her music. Go girl.

She is leaving before she is fired. This show was not her best moment. She looked scared and gave one sentence answers. I was uncomfortable watching her on the show. Move on.

Maybe she should focus on creating a normal life for herself and her children. She had her time in the spotlight, she doesn't need the money, and she can't handle the fame.

The girl needs a normal, quiet life and some hobbies.

Yeah this judge thing is really for b posters. I think it cheapened the artist to be so accessible. I was a little dissapointed to see Nikki minaj doing it so early in her career
