Britney Spears close to landing new job

Poor Britney Spears has been unemployed for so long, it’s about time she gets some good news! It looks like she’ll be named as a new judge on “X Factor” any day now.

Sources confirm the singer is in final-stage negotiations with Fox and X Factor producers to join the series this fall. Spears has reportedly haggled a $15 million payout for the gig (slightly more than Jennifer Lopez snagged for American Idol).

If the deal closes, Spears could be an ideal choice to boost music competition’s ratings: She has both credible music industry experience and a chaotic personality that’s lent itself to fun headlines over the years. That’s the type of celebrity mixture that Factor chief Simon Cowell can work with.
