When Britney Spears first agreed to become a judge-with a whopping $15 million salary-on Simon Cowell‘s “The X Factor, many people were scared for her because they didn’t think she could do it. After all, she is still under conservatorship.

But apparently, after just a few months of working on the show, Britney‘s shaped up to be the kind of judge that Simon Cowell himself could be proud of.

During a conference call with a few reporters, Cowell admitted:

“[Britney] is a fascinating person because you just don’t know anything about her… She’s very unpredictable. You never know what is going to happen. She has taken this very seriously and she’s surprisingly quite mean.”

He continued:

“In the past we’ve had judges that never say no… [But] she can’t say no quick enough on this show. She’s quite difficult to please.”

The former “American Idol” judge also revealed that having Britney and the Demi Lovato on the show is like “having two racehorses who are very talented but very difficult to control.”

He explained:

“We have no control over these two whatsoever, and there are many, many times that we disagree… But that’s what’s made it more interesting this year. They are both unpredictable and have different and strong views.”

As for the show, which is set to premiere on Wednesday on Fox, Simon gushed:

“I’ve seen the first show and I think it’s sensational… I think the girls do a great job and the contestants are great. The show looks different than anything we’ve ever made before.”

As it turns out, we weren’t totally wrong when we thought Britney would eventually think of backing out from “The X Factor” in spite of being the highest paid judge on the show.

In a phone interview with TMZ, the show’s honcho Simon Cowell revealed that the engaged pop star actually thought of quitting her judging duties when she stormed off the set on her first day, which the media downplayed as a mere bathroom break.

Cowell told the site:

“No one is going to admit that on the first day your highest paid star after 20 minutes has walked off set.”

He explained:

“[Britney] had a moment on the first day where she said to me ‘I’m not sure I can do this.’”

Fortunately, he was able to talk her into staying. Let’s just say that it’s going to take a lot to drag Britney away from her precious chair now.
