Britney Spears to judge 'X Factor'?

Britney Spears is one of the stars consistently mentioned whenever gossip about "The X Factor" begins to spread, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Spears could be close to sealing a deal to judge.

Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid have said that they're likely going to add two women to the "X Factor's" judging panel, now that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are off the show.

Spears, along with Katy Perry, LeAnn Rimes and Janet Jackson, has been part of the circling rumors about who could potentially fill the empty spots since "The X Factor's" shake-up in January.

Go ahead and blame Ke$ha: Young women like to 'vocal fry'

Ke$ha does it. So does Britney Spears, Zooey Deschanel and Kim Kardashian.

And now a report shows two-thirds of women in a recent study do it, too: They're all using vocal fry when they talk.

Vocal fry is a creaky, deep sound made when the human voice is at the lowest register. For Ke$ha and Britney, the creak of vocal fry can be heard at the end of the verse lines in their songs. For Zooey and Kim, it’s at the end of their sentences. Listen here for some examples:

Britney Spears shows off sparkler in Vegas

The bright lights of Vegas had competition from Britney Spears' engagement ring over the weekend.

The 30-year-old singer accepted a marriage proposal from her former agent-turned-boyfriend Jason Trawick on Thursday, which also happened to be his 40th birthday. Having changed her status to "engaged" on Facebook, the couple celebrated their impending nuptials and Trawick's birthday in Vegas.

Access Hollywood reports that Spears and Trawick, who have been dating since 2009, stowed their things at Planet Hollywood before heading off for dinner and then partying at Chateau Nightclub, where paparazzi snapped pics of Spears' 3-carat rock.

Happy 30th birthday, Britney Spears

Pop star extraordinaire Britney Spears hit the big 3-0 today. (And we'll admit that makes us feel a smidge old.)

The singer is still as big of a pop star as she was more than a decade ago, following the release of her debut album "...Baby One More Time" at the age of 17.

Since then, fame and celebrity has taken Britney Jean for something of a bumpy ride.
