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 added nothing to the X Factor. All I heard was, "That was amazing."

Music career is O-V-E-R.

You were interesting when you were young and sexy and slim. Now you're just stupid white trash.

A comeback ain't gonna happen. But I'm sure a lot of producers would be glad to take your money.

I think Britney has some issues with mental illness. She probably can't handle a consistent envionment and needs to have variety every day.
It's okay for her to decide what isn't for her.

it always did seem odd that someone who wasn't allowed to make a decision with her own life was able to play about with others and their 5million$ opportunity. next, please.

X Factor like American Idol or America's Got Talent started out as an excellent show with POTENTIAL. It was originally going to be a showcase of younger talent that quickly went downhill into a showcase for its Judges instead of for the contestants. Simon Cowell was the XFactor just as he was Ameican Idol. When Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were added to the panel of Judges, the talent aspect went out the door and America started to drool over the madcap antics of Spears and Lovato. With all due respect. WHO CARES? The show was called X Factor. It was not the Britney & Demi Kiss-Up Hour. In the long run, Adam Lambert has more talent in his one hand than Britney has in her 8 so-called albums. Remember, Britney's claim to fame was cutting off her hair and going bald. She is NOT TALENT. She is not even a personality. She is a one hit wonder who will soon disappear. America has so much talent -- grown-ups -- adults -- who can truly mentor our young talent. But they seem to be passed over for the next pretty face. If Spears is going south and LA. Reid is returning to Epic Records, who is the next person to come aboard?

I didn't like her as a judge anyway. She never had much to say and her comments seemed robotic. Anyway, who can judge someone on vocal ability when she isn't even a vocalist her self. Bye Brittany!

Thank goodness because she brought absolutely nothing to the show, except for maybe amazing gifs of her crazy faces. Anywho, I seriously believe that Demi needs to go as well. While she is an AMAZING judge at times, her fan base is too crazy. They were literally voting for her contestants just because they were on Demi's team, negating the entire point of the show. Too many people stayed longer than they needed to because of her fan base. Voting needs to be based on talent and not on whose team you're on.

Demi Lovato seemed totally out of touch with everything - terrible coach. She wouldn't be missed.

The few times I watched, she was awful. Whoever is "handling" her, needs to handle her a little better. She always looked like she was going to burst into tears. Her makeup looked like she'd been out too late the night before....Britney may have brought "lookie Lou's" to the X just to see what she'd do...They got what they wanted. Now go back away and clean your self up a bit more...Not trying to be mean. She just didn't seem ready for this...

This is very good news, because I could not stand her on XFactor. She was the worst judge I have ever seen on any show. I'm extremely happy to not have to listen to her anymore. Now, if we can only get rid of Khloe Kardashian......

She didn't quit. She was already told she was fired.
