I Quit, Y'all!!!

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.

She doesn't need the money, so if she isn't loving it, by all means, quit! I hope she finds happiness making her music and being a mom.

She made a good decision The X Factor is sub-par compared to The Voice!

This was pre-ordained before they even announced her joining the show. Nonsense writes itself, and the end is always predictable.

"We have unimpeachable sources who tell us Britney loves the show but wants to focus on her music ...".

Translation: she was going to get fired, but she quit instead.

And "unimpeachable sources"...code for stage hand(s) and lighting technician(s).

all about the money    

Not buying she wants to focus on her music line. Do some research and you will find that X-Factor was on the verge of being canceled because of low ratings and HUGE cost over runs. Simon was told to cut the budget or go off the air. Simon's gamble of putting tabloid celebs on to boost ratings failed horribly. Imagine Brit was told she wouldn't get 15 mil to return next season...or she has already seen the writing on the wall that the show is going to bomb again and is distancing herself from the failure.

Can't wait till American Idol starts......Though I do wish they would get new Judges. Get the play drama out of the picture it's not working and another can't you pick judges that are about the show and not them and how much they are getting paid?
