Seems like Simon was right in his appraisal of Britney Spears' X Factor judging style: She really is mean.
In a video promo released for the new season, which features Britney, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as judges, Britney asks one contestant “I wanna know who let you on stage.” Smacks of Simon’s nasty little barbs, don’t it.
Because all of the judges apparently had to described their characteristics a la the Spice Girls, Britney has called herself the “subtle” one. The way her line is cut, she could also be pulling some “I wanna know who let you on stage. SO I CAN THANK THEM!” crap.
Demi, on the other hand, isn’t much of a brat, as Simon claimed—she’s always grinning and giggling, and described herself as a “happy judge” who’s “really, really honest.”
Both ladies also said it was “fun” and “fun” and also “fun.” We’ll have to see for ourselves during the two-night season premiere on September 12th and 13th at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
