The Word: Britney Spears' 'X Factor' contract includes Doritos and fried chicken

The pop star wants catered munchies in addition to $15 million.

Britney Spears may be making $15 million for gracing the judges
table on "The X Factor," but she still doesn't intend to put out her own
snack money.

Details from the singer's contract have leaked, and she has some very
specific requests as far as dressing room needs are concerned. Every
day, she'll require fried chicken (legs and breasts only), 12 Snickers
bars, 24 cans of Coke, 10 snack size bags of Doritos and 12 vases of
magnolia blossoms — give or take a basket of baby white lion cubs,
depending what source you're going with.

Not that all of this junk food is exclusively for Spears, who has
reportedly been hitting the gym before cameras start rolling. She's also
requested a 24-member staff that includes a beauty team, a massage
therapist and a "spiritual adviser."

How sweet would it be to serve as Spears' spiritual adviser? You know
you could just toss this chick a couple mood rings and spend the next
seven-and-a-half hours eating her Doritos.

Clarkson’s just too happy




Now that Kelly Clarkson is in a stable relationship, she fears
her art will suffer.

"It is killing me. I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out
like butterflies and rainbows," the singer tells People magazine. "It
is ruining my creativity."

You’ve got to make sacrifices for love, Kelly. But then again, most of
us couldn’t write lyrics as lame as these after, say, junior year:


"I used to stand so tall

I used to be so strong

Your arms around me tight

Everything, it felt so right"




Today in Kardashians




Khloe Kardashian is dishing out some tough love. According to
Australia's NW magazine, after finding a stash of Kim's Valium
and sleeping pills, she told her sister to clean it up or she was
telling mom.

"Khloe's really freaked out by it: She found a bottle of pills and knew
straight away what Kim was doing," says a source, adding that Kim began
self-medicating after splitting from Reggie Bush two years ago.

Oh, Khloe — if you only knew what we started swallowing after her
four-hour wedding special.

Colbert Nation speaks




Maxim magazine let readers vote on this year’s list of the 100 hottest
women, which is why Stephen Colbert — who launched a massive
write-in campaign — comes in at number 69. The comedian beat out Word
favorites including Sophie Vergara (at 71) and Christina
Hendricks
(an unacceptable 77).
