Britney Spears Throws Stones While Demi Lovato Shows Her Softer Side On The X Factor Premiere

X Factor Season Premiere

It’s a match made in heaven between Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on this season’s The X Factor. Both of the pop singers were the stars of the show on last night’s season premiere joining judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. And if anyone was worried Britney Spears would be too easy on contestants, she dispelled that notion by coming out the gate swinging with harsh, but hilarious criticisms. “I want to know who let you on stage,” said Spears. “I feel uncomfortable with you even staring at me.” Ouch!

Behind the Music Sneak Peek: How Nas Reconciled with Jay Z

Tonight, legendary emcee Nas joins this season’s Behind the Music alumni of artists like Aaliyah, Nelly, T-Pain, Game and Akon. In the program, the Queens rapper —who entered the hip hop game back in 1994 with the classic Illmatic— opens up about life, love, loss and beef.

Speaking of the latter, Nas’ 2001 rivalry with Jay-Z was, without question, one of hip-hop’s all-time biggest beefs. In this exclusive clip, Nas talks about his reconciliation with one of the game’s biggest luminaries. After the diss records and the hype had dwindled, Nas remembers L.A. Reid asking if he’d be willing to talk to Jay. He went to the studio where Jay was, and like two true New Yorkers whose hearts beat hip-hop, the two dapped each other while laughing. When Nas signed to Def Jam in 2006, Jay-Z said, “You can’t sign an artist of Nas stature. You can only partner with him.”

Watch Behind the Music: Nas tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
