Tabloid magazines usually get away with printing all kinds of lies about celebrities, but this time, Britney Spears didn't let one particular publication get away with it.
After Britney came aboard The X Factor as a judge, the British fashion and celebrity magazine Look ran a story about her outrageous backstage diva demands, which reportedly included having a personal facialist, manicurist and massage therapist on set for each day of filming. Now, the British paper The Guardian reports that the magazine has been forced to apologize for that story, because those so-called demands -- commonly called a 'rider" -- dated back more than a decade.
In its apology, which ran in Look's current issue, the magazine writes, "We were led to believe the rider was for her new job on the panel and published the piece in good faith. It has emerged that the rider was in fact Britney's rider from 2000 and not a rider for The X Factor USA 2012. We apologize to Britney and the X Factor USA for this inaccuracy."
