The X Factor

Britney Spears Wanted More Money Than J. Lo to Judge The X Factor

We would have thought that an eight-figure salary was its own reward, but apparently there’s a lot more to it than that: According to TMZ, Britney Spears’s main demand when negotiating to appear as a judge on The X Factor was that she get a bigger payday than Jennifer Lopez gets for American Idol.

It worked, too: J. Lo pulled down $12 million last season, while Britney’s contract is reportedly worth $15 million.

So will J.Lo in turn demand that Idol beat Britney’s salary? Will this become a case of dramatic cross-network salary brinksmanship? We can only hope, right?
