Britney To X Factor? Simon Cowell Says “Wait and See”

As the hunt for the next “X Factor” judges continues, Simon Cowell continues to play coy on who will replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger at the judges table.

As The Hollywood Reporter first reported, Britney Spears could be nearing a deal to make her reality series debut as a judge on the buzzworthy U.K. import. A well place source told THR that Spears’ fiancé, agent Jason Trawick, is negotiating her contact, which could be signed as soon as this week.

“You’ll have to wait and see,” Cowell teased during an appearance on Good Day New York.

When asked about Spears’ potential involvement, the showrunner replied, “I can’t confirm or deny anything right now. The truth is, we are talking to a number of people. It changes on a daily basis to be honest with you.”

Cowell also admitted that two new names have come forth in the last 24-hours, including one “very famous singer” and one “very famous actress.”

“You’ve gotta talk to everybody,” he said.

Addressing the shocking firings of Abdul, Scherzinger and host Steve Jones, Cowell quipped, “They weren’t fired, darling. They just weren’t invited back.”

“With the host,” he added, “too many Brits on the show, if I’m being honest with you. One Brit allowed.”

“I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show,” Cowell said. “And I like hosts who don’t kind of have a hosting background, you know. I like them when they’ve done acting and stuff like that. It’s a different kind of dynamic.”

Speaking with The Voice mentor Miranda Lambert at The Hunger Games premiere, THR asked the country singer what she thought of Spears joining the X Factor roster.

“Why not? I mean, she’s an icon,” Lambert said. “It’s a smart choice.”

“I think it’d be awesome,” added her Pistol Annies bandmate, Angaleena Presley.

Britney Turns Down $10 Million X Factor Offer

Britney Spears has reportedly been offered $10 million to judge the US version of ‘The X Factor’, but sources say she is holding out for more.

The ‘Hold It Against Me’ singer’s fiance and manager Jason Trawick is said to have “been negotiating for some time”, with ex ecutives for the talent search show.

One source told E! news Britney has been offered the huge sum to appear on the second series of the show – which returns later this year – but she’s said to be holding out for $16 million.

The first run of ‘The X Factor’ was judged by show boss Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, although the latter two were subsequently axed after it failed to achieve the ratings Simon had hoped.

Simon is said to have initially approached Britney, and recently admitted he was “fascinated” by her and think she would be ideal for the show.

He said: “I would think that if she’s managed to sustain in her family life in a career which is tough, this is a walk in the park.”

Janet Jackson was also rumoured to have been offered the judging role, but turned it down because of touring commitments.

A high ranking ex ecutive for the show told The Hollywood Reporter the perfect candidate would be someone based in Los Angeles with not just success in the music business, but who is also a parent who wants to spend time with their children.

Rumour: Madonna Wants To Perform With Britney & Justin

Forget Alex Rodriguez, Madonna wants a different man. And woman! According to The Sun, the site that broke the exclusive of the Britney-Madonna cameo first, Madonna has ulterior motives as to why she wants Britney to cameo and possibly appear at a few shows for her “Sticky & Sweet” world tour – to reunite with Justin! Duh!

“[Madonna] is desperate to get JT on stage too,” says a source. “Justin was heavily involved in the recording of Madge album Hard Candy and she wants him to perform one of their duets from the CD. Madge’s dream is to shock the world with JT and Britney – whose four-year relationship ended in 2002 – appearing on the same stage at her final US date in Miami in November.”

A source revealed: “Madonna is always trying to raise the bar and Britney and Timberlake on the same stage would be perfect. They have both been asked but I think both are a bit reluctant. Britney would find it all a bit emotional and JT might not fancy it. More likely is that they both appear on different dates.

Rumour: Britney To Film Video Cameo For Madonna's Tour

MADONNA has asked troubled BRITNEY SPEARS to join her on tour — and pals hope she will give guidance to the young star.

The Queen Of Pop, 49, is set to record a video with Britney, 26, in New York tomorrow.

The footage will be broadcast on huge screens as part of Madge’s Sticky and Sweet tour, which kicks off on August 23.

Madonna has also invited Britney to appear in person on some of the world tour dates.

A source close to Britney revealed: “They are recording a video together on Sunday that will provide the backdrop for part of Madonna’s show.

“And they are talking about Britney taking the stage on a few of the dates too.

“There’s no doubt that her and Britney together will spell fireworks again.

“It’s hoped that Madonna can help Britney get back to her old self. Appearing with Madonna would really kickstart her career again. She’s been there and done it so could provide some great guidance.”

Britney and Madonna stunned fans at the MTV Music Awards in 2003 by sharing a passionate kiss.

The source added: “If anyone can mastermind a Britney comeback, it’s Madonna.

“Lots of people will be hoping there’s a repeat of the kissing incident a few years ago.”

The Toxic singer has always been a huge fan of Madge — and even converted to her Kabbalah religion. But it has been reported that their relationship cooled after Britney lost interest in the mystical Jewish faith.

The source added: “Maybe this means Britney is ready to devote to Kabbalah again as she tries to sort herself out.”

Madonna’s new tour to support album Hard Candy promises to be her sexiest yet.

She will turn 50 a week before it kicks off in Cardiff — but still plans to shock fans with a controversial stage show.

The singer will even pretend to be MUMMIFIED as part of a routine.

Britney lost custody of kids Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James as she battled her demons.

Rumour: Britney Returning To "How I Met Your Mother"

Britney Spears is returning to How I Met Your Mother, a source tells PEOPLE.

“The show is ecstatic and so is Britney,” a source said. “She had so much fun the first time around she really wanted to come back. It was a mutual decision to work together more.”

The singer/actress will do one episode, the source says. Fox studios would not confirm the appearance.

Spears, 26, appeared on the March 24 episode, playing a receptionist at a dermatologist’s office who fell for one of the show’s main characters, played by Josh Radnor. She received wide accolades for the spot.

“She was hilarious in the table-read, and I got to see her do the run-through as well, and she was great,” cast member Jason Segal said. –Jennifer Garcia, Nicole Weisensee Egan and Lisa Ingrassia.

Britney Reunited With Former Manager Larry Rudolph?

As Britney Spears continues to strive to get her personal and professional lives back in order, OK! has learned she’s turned to a familiar face for help — former manager Larry Rudolph. Though the pair had parted company a year ago, sources confirm exclusively to OK! that the “Toxic” songstress has once again been taken under Larry’s wing.

Larry and Brit share a long and bumpy history. He was the visionary who discovered the young star Britney and shepherded her career from teen pop tart to international superstar. And when her life began to spiral dangerously out of control in the weeks and months following her Oct. 2006 divorce from Kevin Federline, it was Larry who Britney’s parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, turned to for help getting her into rehab.

After her brief stint at the Promises clinic in Malibu, Brit went public with her ill-feelings toward Larry, chastising him on camera in a bizarre, disjointed rant, for what she viewed as siding with her folks against her.

However, Brit’s dad has always been open about his positive feelings toward Larry, even publicly thanking Larry for his efforts. And now Jamie, who has continued to think the world of Larry both as a manager and as a friend who has Britney’s best interests at heart, has finally convinced Britney to let him take over the reins of her recently resurgent career.

Rumour: Britney Throws A Fit At Hospital

We are hearing from multiple sources that Britney Spears is throwing a fit on the 7th floor of Cedars Sinai. She is demanding to leave, screaming at the staff, will not lay or sit still, we’re told.

From all indications she is being held on a 5150, which means she is a danger to herself and others. Typically people in that situation can be held for 72 hours against their will.

UPDATE- We have also been told she has pulled her IV out and is generally out of control.

If this is true, I’m really glad.  At least she’s not “acting normal” to g et out within 72 hours.  Hopefully this leads them to keeping her for longer, and her realising she has a problem.
