In one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood, both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have signed on to judge the next season of The X Factor, because why shouldn’t a pair of easily manipulated Disney starlets best known for public meltdowns and messy personal issues tell a bunch of impressionable kids what and what not to do? This will end well. Anyway, Britney reportedly signed a contract for $15 Million, while Demi has reportedly signed on for “only” $1 Million. Yeah, “only”. Poor girl. TMZ reports:
Sources tell TMZ, the 19-year-old singer’s raking in just north of a million to join the gang on X Factor — still damn impressive, but face it … she’s no Britney. Simon Cowell raved about Demi, praising her accomplishments at such a young age … insisting she will connect with younger viewers. As we reported, Britney signed a record $15 million deal to work as a judge on the show — so Demi’s getting table scraps … but in the TV biz, scraps can make you a millionaire. And just to show how desperately Demi wanted to appease her new X Factor overlords — we’re told the former Disney star even structured her upcoming tour around the X Factor tapings.
I like how they’re calling $1 MILLION “table scraps”. As if most people wouldn’t jump through a thousand metaphorical hoops for that kind of money. “Hmmmmm, enough money to live comfortably for a long while? Nah, I don’t get out of bed for anything less than $15 Million. What kind of girl do you think I am? A girl that does NOT sleep on a bed made of $15 Million in dollar bills, draped in baby seal comforters? I should slap the crap out of you.”
