In the latest star news, DEMI LOVATO recently admitted that she initially expected fellow “X Factor” judge BRITNEY SPEARS to be a diva… but was pleasantly proven wrong.
But before they all became good friends, Demi Lovato, who is the youngest judge on the “X Factor” panel, was initially intimidated by the 30-year-old pop legend.
She admits to PEOPLE:
“What surprised me the most about Britney is that she’s actually really quirky… You kind of expect a legendary pop star [to] sometimes [be], like, a diva or something, but she’s really not.”
“She’s a sweet, down-to-earth, Southern girl.”
In addition to enjoying the company of the pop icon, the former “Sonny With a Chance” star admits that she’s also having a really great time being a judge on the show. She shares:
“I’m having a lot of fun… It’s such a blessing to be on this show. It came at a time in my life where I really needed something to look forward to in my career. It’s been an amazing opportunity, and getting to sit next to Britney and Simon [Cowell] and L.A. [Reid] has been an honor. [And] Just being able to mentor girls that I believe in is so – I can’t explain it. It feels so great.”
