The new Judges have been announced for the X Factor USA and I have to be honest, I’m in two minds about them.
Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have replaced Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul and you’ve got to question, are they really the right people for the job?
On one hand, Britney has plenty of experience as she’s been in the fame game for over 14 years and she’s a very successful singer, and Demi has been successful in both acting and singing in her short career.
On the other hand, both Britney and Demi have experienced very public breakdowns, Demi allegedly punched a dancer in the face and then entered rehab, and Britney went crazy and shaved her head in full view of the paparazzi and entered a number of rehab facilities.
So you could say that neither are fit to be role models for those who want to enter the industry but the way I choose to see it, they are a good reminder of how fame can ruin your life as well as make it.
I don’t doubt they will make good judges, they have a wider experience of the fame spectrum than many, but will their mishaps create uproar amongst the do-gooders?
