Howard Stern: Spears is dummy

Howard Stern is predicting that Britney Spears will be "sucking a lollipop" while judging contestants on The X Factor.

The infamous shock jock radio host has replaced Piers Morgan as a judge on media mogul Simon Cowell's TV talent show America's Got Talent.

It has been confirmed recently that Britney will get $15 million for one season's commitment to Simon's other show The X Factor.

According to USA Today, Howard isn't convinced that the pop star will do a good job.

"She'll stand there with a lollipop[saying] 'Can I get a perfume deal out of this?' " he said at a news conference held at the Friars' Club. "I don't think you'll be getting opinions from her. But I'll tune in to see what kind of a train wreck she is."

Howard isn't sure if he would have taken up his post on America's Got Talent should his fellow judges have been two Hollywood superstars in particular.

"Absolutely not. To sit there with JLo and Britney would be like a ventriloquist with two dummies; I'd have to prop them up," he joked.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
