Britney Spears & 'X Factor' Judges Cover 'TV Guide' Magazine

Britney Spears and her fellow X Factor judges Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, and L.A. Reid take the cover of TV Guide magazine’s latest issue.

Here is what the 30-year-old pop star and the other judges had to share with the mag:

Britney on her reaction to getting the job: “[Simon] was absolutely adorable on the phone, and he is so sweet. My makeup artist used to do his makeup, and we were joking around about me doing it. So I guess it was one of those meant-to-be things.”

Demi on wanting to be a judge: “I really feel like being the first young judge on any of these vocal competition shows is a lot of pressure, but at the same time, it’s great because I get to bring in a perspective from the audience that’s around my age. I was nervous at first because it’s not like I have the experience that L.A., Simon and Britney have. But I know how hard people have to work to get to where they want to be, and I can spot somebody who has talent and who’s memorable and could be a pop star.”

Simon on his pop star co-judges: “It’s quite difficult sometimes when you’ve got singers judging other singers, because they can be selfish. And I’ve watched this very carefully; these two want to find a star.”
