After weeks of speculation and rumors, Britney Spears has officially announced her departure from X Factor. She released an official statement saying:
“I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
It was fun while it lasted, but we love our Britney in the studio. Plus, it would be really hard to do X Factor and headline a show in Las Vegas at the same time.
