Apparently Britney Spears means business on this season of the X Factor.

In a recent conference call with reporters, fellow judge Simon Cowell confessed that viewers shouldn’t expect to see Brit channeling her bubbly pop star persona the famous singer apparently wasn’t looking to make friends with any contestants on the show!

"[She] is a fascinating person because you just don't know anything about her," Simon said in reference to Britney. "She's very unpredictable. You never know what is going to happen. She has taken this very seriously and she's surprisingly quite mean."

And despite the hiccups towards the beginnings of filming, Britney has been anxiety-free and ready-to-judge all season. 

“I’ve seen the first show and I think it’s sensational,” Simon explained. “I think the girls do a great job and the contestants are great. The show looks different than anything we’ve ever made before.”
