Earlier this week we wondered whether Britney Spears would accept Simon Cowell’s offer and become the next X Factor judge. Turns out, Spears rejected the $10 million offer three weeks ago. The offer was in the ballpark of what Christina Aguilera earned on season three of The Voice and close to what Jennifer Lopez was paid for American Idol. But it wasn’t good enough for Spears and she apparently asked Fox for a whopping $20 million!
Now, it’s being reported that the singer is considering a different offer, to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel in the fall, just like Celine Dion.
Paul Abdul was paid $2.5 million for X Factor so I would be flattered if I was Spears. When you get to have an exorbitant amount of riches, wouldn’t you just want to settle down with a project you really want to do instead of reaching for more and more money?
