Just yesterday, the world learned that Britney Spears was more or less being paid for her The X Factor gig with delicious fried chicken, Doritos, Diet Coke, along with the $15 Million dollar paycheck. Clearly, she’s taking her commitments seriously and upholding her end of the bargain and- oh, wait, scratch that, she walked off the set and didn’t return after someone made the mistake of performing one of her songs and sucking at it. TMZ reports:

Britney Spears walked off the set of X Factor moments ago … and according to several people in the audience, she was upset after a contestant butchered her song, Hold It Against Me. Britney did not come back immediately … and four contestants auditioned in front of the remaining judges … and an empty seat. Someone connected with the show tells us Britney was not upset over the song — and that she “Just took a short break.”

Wait, so no one else saw this one coming? I mean granted, I figured that if she walked off set, it would be because she was chasing a butterfly or following a trail of Cheetos, but still, it was really only a matter of time. “Look ya’ll, I thought that your number was, like, pitchy? And your performance was all over the pla- plastic bag! plastic bag! plastic bag! *Runs out the door*
