Word around the ranch is that Britney Spears may not be long for the "X factor."
That's what she gets for not acting insane like we all thought she would.
Us Weekly quotes an anonymous "insider" as saying, "Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working." A supposed second informant added, "They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps." And just for the sake of piling on, Us tapped a third source who said "He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney."
This is terribly upsetting.
According to E! News, 'X Factor' honcho Simon Cowell has yet to officially confirm or deny the rumors, so until then, they are just that. Besides, he's busy with Carmen Electra. Meanwhile, there's always a chance Spears could blow a gasket. Fingers crossed.
