Britney Spears — ‘X Factor’ Announcement Was a Bloody Nail-biter

No one was more nervous to see and hear reassembled pop princess Britney Spears at her big $15 million “X Factor” announcement  yesterday than Britney herself … at least judging from her chewed up and bloody fingernails.

Despite the unwavering support from her new boss Simon Cowell, Britney seems to be taking out her pre-show anxiety on her cuticles … a problem she”s been dealing with for years.  

In fact, Britney made a New Year”s resolution to drop the habit in 2008, saying … “Next year, I have to learn to stop biting my nails! I would like to stop worrying so much, because I worry all the time.”
