Britney Spears: Casual in Calabasas

Enjoying a post-Valentine's Day lunch with a gal pal, Britney Spears went to Paul Martin's in Calabasas on Friday (February 15).

The "Scream & Shout" singer was dressed down in a hot pink tank top, red zip-up sweatshirt, and black leggings as she headed inside with her friend and her bodyguard.

Last month, the 31-year-old pop star announced that she would not be returning for a second season of the "X Factor." In a statement, Brit shared, "I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my Teens, but it's time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most."

One fellow judge will be sad to see her go, though. Demi Lovato told E! Online on Wednesday, "I mean, who can replace Britney, let's be honest."
