Simon Cowell is offering up some career advice for Britney Spears, telling the pop star to "go home to your family."
In an interview with Good Morning America on Thursday, Cowell tells ABC news correspondent Juju Chang that Spears is perfectly capable of saving her career because she's "still one of the most talked about pop stars on the planet."
"She has the X-factor because people want to write about her," Cowell says. "She's not conventional, she's not normal."
At the same time, Cowell says that Britney "can't handle the tension and the pressure" that comes from being in the spotlight so she needs to refocus herself at home.
"Lock the door, don't go out with your stupid friends, have some home-cooked food, get a sense of reality," he says. "Go lie in the garden, okay? And then say to yourself, 'There's more good in my life than bad. I'm still a rich, talented girl – now I want to get my career back on track.' End of story."
