Another judge is out on the X-Factor. This time it's Britney Spears joining Los Angeles (L.A.) Reid. While L.A. got to go quietly into the night, Britney isn't being awarded the same luxury. The rumor mill has been churning away all weekend with speculation over why she is not returning next season. Some Britney fans are saying that she was only ever planning on staying on the show for one season (oh and "leave Britney alone!!!!!") while others including Brendan Spaar believe that the producers wanted a crazy Britney who would shave her head and hit people with an umbrella. When the top brass at X Factor got a rather reserved and "normal" Britney, they decided she wasn't dramatic enough to command the $9 million salary they were paying her and opted not to renew her contract. Now there is another rumor out there that Britney demanded a $3 million raise to return to the show. The only thing certain about this whole mess is that Simon Cowell needs to start looking for a guy and girl to replace his judges. I hear Cee Lo Green and Christina Agulara are available!
