Britney Gets Simon Cowell Pep Talk!
She may be a pop diva who’s well used to performing for thousands, but it seems Britney Spears is human after all! She had to be persuaded to remain on the X Factor judging panel by the show’s boss, Brit Simon Cowell, after audience booing on the hit reality program gave her a crisis of confidence.
The Toxic singer, herself discovered through the show Star Search years ago, confessed in an interview that the negative response from the audience took some getting used to.
However, she acknowledges: “I don’t want to waste time with singers who are not talented, when they could be doing something they are really meant to do in life.”
It seems that notoriously blunt Simon Cowell had to reassure the upset singer after her early criticisms met with boos. He told Spears she was doing a great job, and that she would have to get used to that kind of response.
Her reaction to the booing will not be edited out as the show returns to our screens today for the first live shows of Season 2, from 8pm ET/PT on Fox.
