Howard Stern: Spears is dummy

Howard Stern

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

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
