janet jackson wont judge x factor

Ah well! This would have been awesome, but at least we still might get to see Brit Brit on the show!

Over the past couple of weeks, we had heard rumors that Janet Jackson had been expressing interest in joining X Factor as a judge.

Now, Janet has opened up about about the X rumors, and she's saying that she WON'T join the show as a judge for its upcoming season:

"[I'm] very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn't be possible."

When asked why she couldn't do the show, Janet mentioned that she had a "previous commitment to her Numbers Ones Up Close and Personal Tour," as well as another commitment to Lionsgate (the studio behind the Tyler Perry movies. She has starred in a few of them).

Here's more from Team Janet:

"There have been absolutely no meetings between Janet and anyone with regard to X-Factor."

We're certainly bummed to hear this, but we know one person who does NOT have a commitment to Lionsgate, and who would LOVE to be a judge….


Give us a call, Simon! We're SO up for this!!!

    Re: DSummerfan – I agree. She does great productions, but her voice is paper thin.

    Why the F*ck would they want you Perez? Industry folks read this "blog" of yours… you'd tank the show for sure. And who are you? Seriously Perez…who the f*ck are you? Stop trying to promote yourself…it just makes you seem all the more pathetic.

    Re: ParisIsBurning – thing is, she ruled for like 20 plus years!! it's really because she's black that she don't get credit. she has a zillion hits. it's her self-importantce and baby voice that annoys me. but bitch is talented and a legend. shit, she's been famous since penny on good times in 1975!!

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – "Self-importance"? She always comes off as a sassy entertainer, yet humble and shy, as well as very appreciative in her interviews.
