We doubt that this is true, but DAMN! We wish it were!
Reports are circulating that execs at Universal Music Group flew Cheryl Cole out to El Lay this past weekend to sign a £6 million - almost $10 million - record deal to break into the US music scene!
Sources claim that both Simon Cowell and frequent collaborator will.i.am were instrumental in the deal - which includes a US release of her album Messy Little Raindrops and two more after that - and friend Derek Hough was present for moral support!
The insider explains:
"Cheryl got a call from some very senior people at Universal saying they wanted to see her. They are the kind of people who when they say, 'Jump', you ask, 'How high?' So she jumped on a plane and went to LA for 36 hours. Derek was there to ferry her to and fro and give her support as these big execs can be quite scary."
We think this would sound a whole lot more legitimate if she were confirmed as a judge on the US X Factor, but if it is true, congratulations, bb! This is HUGE!
And if it's not true, don't worry! It's only a matter of time before it does happen!
What do U think?? Do U want to see Chezza hit American mainstream??
