It looks like a Britney booze ban has been introduced by Britney Spears' team backstage on 'The X Factor' to keep her from being tempted by a drink whilst she works on the show.

US Weekly magazine reported that the popstar's officials sent a note to the backstage workers reading, 'Very important. We require you to empty minibars of all alcohol. And no gifts of wine or any other alcoholic beverages, please.' It has aroused media speculation surrounding her current health; is there a reason why she specifically can't be around alcohol? Or did she simply want to maintain a clear head for the show's premiere on Wednesday (September 12, 2012)?

'No alcohol' is apparently not the only rule the 30-year-old has imposed, either. According to the Daily Mail, a ludicrous rumour has emerged suggesting that Britney has demanded that all overly-pretty females be removed from the backstage area. 'Britney has stipulated that none of the backstage staff working with her are too pretty or stylish', a source told the publication. It doesn't seem like her to be suddenly excessively self-conscious, but it does make one wonder how she feels about judging alongside 20-year-old 'Camp Rock' star Demi Lovato. Probably totally unfazed. We're only at the beginning of the Britney Spears X Factor debacle; we reckon there's plenty more bizarre behaviour to come from the 'Toxic' singer.
