Howard Stern - Howard Stern Slams Simon Cowell For Hiring Britney Spears

Howard Stern has criticised Simon Cowell for reportedly hiring Britney Spears for America's The X Factor as he fears the fragile star will be a "train wreck" on the show.
Cowell is rumoured to have signed Spears as a judge on the show in a reported $15 million (£9.3 million) deal, and although he is yet to confirmed the news, his America's Got Talent star Stern is already angry about the singer's appointment.
Stern is worried Spears, who famously suffered numerous public meltdowns, won't be able to take the pressure of such a high-profile TV role and will have little to contribute.
He tells Access Hollywood, "Britney still thinks the Earth is flat. Listen, I think we're going to tune in to see her, if she can sort of function through the thing... As far as any real criticism, I think Simon and (fellow judge) L.A. Reid will be doing that. I think Britney is going to stand there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit.
"I don't anticipate great opinions out of her. I think she's going to sit there like J.Lo (American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez) and (say), 'Oh, you're wonderful. You're terrific. Do you think I could get a perfume endorsement out of this? You think I could perform on the show?' I think that's what it's about... I'll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely."
