Britney Spears' security army
Britney Spears has reportedly demanded three dressing rooms and 45 minders to look after her as she prepares for her performance on British TV talent show 'The X Factor' tomorrow night (29.11.08)
Britney Spears has reportedly demanded three dressing rooms and 45 minders ahead of her performance on 'The X Factor' tomorrow night (29.11.08).
The 26-year-old singer - who wowed fans with an exclusive rendition of her hit record 'Womanizer' at Germany's Bambi Awards last night (27.11.08) - is said to have made more outrageous requests than infamous diva Mariah Carey, who appeared on the British TV talent show two weeks ago.
A source said: "It's completely silly. No one has seen anything like it, not even when Mariah Carey was on the show. Britney has ordered the use of three dressing rooms, Mariah only wanted two.
"She has also requested the security be tripled, from 15 minders to 45. But it was a coup to get Britney at all, so they are pandering to her every whim."
Britney has also banned the show's finalists, as well as judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh, from requesting autographs or pictures with her.
The source added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "To say it is over the top is an understatement. That not even the judges can ask for pictures with her is beyond belief. The studio has been in lockdown since yesterday in preparation for Britney's arrival.
"Simon finds it all hysterical!"
