Singer Britney Spears and fellow “X-Factor” judges Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell are one big happy bunch.
As far as the pop princess is concerned, the TV gig was “meant to be” and she’s getting a kick out of working with Demi. “Even though she's really young, she has such a sophistication about her. She's cooler than me.”
Demi, 20, praised Britney, too. “I've said from day one, when [Britney] stepped on set, how funny she is. I don't think a lot of people have gotten to see her personality and her sense of humor.”
Meanwhile, Spears, 30, is inspired by Lovato’s self-described “tough” judging style.
"She toughens me up!” Britney explained. “Sometimes I listen to you and I'm like, 'Oh, God, I've got to be a little stronger.'"
