And the new judge on The X Factor is ... Britney! The pop idol will join the talent show on Fox, reports RadarOnline, and will rake in $15 million a year. (The latter is a scoop from E! News.) Spears first had to meet with a real judge who oversees her conservators—the group of people, including her father and maybe soon her future husband, who must sign off on all her legal and financial decisions.
