Quotables: Howard Stern Says Britney’s a Trainwreck

“Well, I think it’s a wonderful decision. Britney still thinks the earth is flat. I don’t anticipate great opinions from her. I think she’s gonna sit there like J.Lo, ‘Oh, you’re wonderful, you’re terrific. You think I can get a perfume endorsement out of this?’ As far as any real criticism, I think Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid will do that … I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit. … I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely.”

Well isn’t that just darling. Don’t you love it when the blind criticize the blind for … well, being blind? Yeah, I know—we do our share of Britney-mockery ourselves on the site here, but no one actually takes what we say seriously. And there are a whole hell of a lot of people who, for whatever reason, take Howard Stern seriously. He wouldn’t have been on the air as long as he has if that weren’t the case. My thoughts? I think boyfriend here is still just a little bitter because he was passed over for American Idol and he’s got a stick up his ass for Simon.

Naturally, Howard’s talking about the latest confirmation that Britney is, in fact, joining the cast of the X-Factor, and while some may use it as cause to celebrate (you know, probably like … Britney?), some are using it to say that the show’s going to be a total crapshoot because of it, but I don’t think so. I think Britney’s going to add life and a dull sort of spark to the show, and even though I sometimes point and laugh at times, too, it doesn’t mean I love that woman any less. She’s going to do a great job, and I’m excited to see what the new season brings.

  • Perhaps you didn’t realize that Howard works for Simon who is the exec prod of AGT?

    • Yep. This chick hasn’t been relevant in a decade (actually…was she ever relevant?). She has a terrible voice, shitty music and her mental breakdown was the only thing that was somewhat interesting about her. She’s a joke.

    • Yup. He’s just not afraid of being honest about it…there are too many people who make excuses for/suck up to Britney.

  • Completly agree with Howard Stern and all of the other comments so far. Britney Spears was a talented stripper, that was about it. It doesn’t seem that out of place to say that someone who already had a nervous breakdown is going to be a train wreck.

  • What a strange entry. How is Howard Stern blind here? Doesn’t he have a hugely successful 30+ yr entertainment career?

    How many of these stupid talent shows do we need anyway?

  • Once you suffer any mental breakdown illness, or admit to handicap in public you can never heal or get therapy..? stuck on stupid

  • Howard Sterns has no talent to speak of himself.
    Who is this idiot to judge??
    Britney has sold millions of CD’s. Howard has sold:
    what?? His low class vocabulary?
