We understand, Britney Spears ... the dollar sign makes things confusing.
Or at least it appeared that way on Thursday's episode of "The X Factor," when Spears completely mispronounced the name "Ke$ha" while giving contestant CeCe Frey feedback on her performance.
In fact, the blunder almost forced us to forget that Ke$ha has actually collaborated with Spears before ("Till The World Ends" remix ring a bell?).
It is this sort of erratic behavior that makes us love the Louisiana-bred pop sensation even more.
