Brit wants $20m

BRIT PLAYS HARD TO GET: Britney Spears has rejected a $10 million offer to judge the next season of The X Factor, TheWrap reports. According to a knowledgeable individual in Spears’ camp, the singer rejected the $10m offer three weeks ago and is instead thinking about an offer to become a resident performer at a Las Vegas hotel in the fall, a la Celine Dion. So here comes a game of chicken, WaxWord columnist Sharon Waxman writes. Fox desperately needs a big name to announce on the judge’s panel of Simon Cowell’s show, now that NBC’s hit show The Voice will be competing with them in the fall. NBC has put its money where its mouth is, reportedly paying Christina Aguilera upward of $10 million this season. They’ve given handsome paychecks, if not as much, to the other judges as well. What Fox has shelled out for the X Factor judges pales in comparison. Paula Abdul was paid $2.5 million for the last season, according to another knowledgeable. X Factor won’t need the judges until the end of May, but Fox wants a big piece of news to present to advertisers at their upfront sales presentations on May 14. (3/16a)
