Britney Spears knows firsthand what it’s like to face the critics, which is why she tries to be impartial when it come to critiquing talent on The X Factor.

“I’m a fair judge,” the 30-year-old told reporters during the show’s San Francisco auditions. “Sometimes it’s hard because I know what they’ve been through, and being so young and [wanting to achieve] their dreams.”

“It’s such a subtle and delicate situation when they’re that young. So you just have to use constructive criticism and be there for them and show them support.”

Spears also had a few words about fellow judge Simon Cowell (see video above).

“I don’t think I’m the toughest judge at all. I definitely think Simon would have to be the toughest judge,” she said.

“I’m just looking for something that shows spark and spunk and someone that is meant to do what they are doing.”
