Britney Spears Is Getting Fired From ‘X Factor’

Farewell old friend.

It’s official friends.

Sad, sad news for all of you Britney Spears fans today, as US Weekly is reporting that the singer will indeed be fired after just one season on The X Factor.

“Britney will get the boot,” an insider told the mag. “Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”

A second insider then added that the $15 million contract Brit has was another huge problem. “They paid all that for her to say ’amazing’ and offer half-claps.”

On the plus side, we can now begin the process of guessing who will replace Brit Brit.

Our money is on a Destiny’s Child member whose name is not Beyonce.
