"[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….
