Tragic news, y’all. Our personal queen Britney Godney Spears has reportedly quit her post as judge on The X Factor, according to a new report from TMZ. Britney's freshman stint on our favorite talent show was met with mixed reviews, and word on the street was that she'd be replaced with a new judge next season. However, it looks like Britney's the one walking away from her $15 million contract!

TMZ reports that though Britney loves being a judge alongside panel pals Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, she wants to get her priorities in order and concentrate on making music. "Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music," a source tells TMZ.

Everything that Britney touches turns to liquid gold — her single with Will.i.am “Scream and Shout” has been at the top of the charts for weeks — and she's already in the studio recording an album with Will and producer Hit-Boy. We have no doubt she'll make songstressy history, but we'll miss her hilarious faces and golf claps on the set of X Factor.

Now excuse us while we slip into our Texas Tuxedo and mourn.
