As we’ve reported, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have inked the deal making them new judges on Simon Cowell’s X-Factor. Generally people are pretty hyped to see both on stage with fellow judges Simon Cowell and LA Reid. However, Jimmy Kimmel had a bone to pick with Spears as he used her as the butt of his jokes as he presented at the ABC Upfronts over the weekend.
Jimmy used sarcastic commentary like, “No one knows talent like Britney Spears and Demi Lovato” and “As you know Britney Spears has been wanting to be a judge ever since she spent the last 10 years appearing before them.” Apparently his comedy received mixed reviews by the crowd, which isn’t surprising because as far as we are concerned, Britney Spears has made so much headway since 2007. It just seems tasteless to go after someone who has been pretty level in the last year. Jimmy also made the classy remark, “If you pay her $15 million, how much would you have to pay someone who could sing?”
Maybe Kimmel is just still bitter that Britney Spears didn’t get inked up like he did. Wondering what that means? Watch the video below. Also, we want to know if you think Kimmy went too far with his jokes. Let us know in the comments section below.Tweet
