Well, if she's gonna turn to anyone, we totally expect it to be the "consciously uncoupling" star!
Because, DUH! Who better to understand Beyoncé's pain than the Goop author?!
Will she or won't she?
On Ryan Seacrest's radio show, Cowell said:
"If it was my decision [to sign Spears, I'd do it] 100 percent — if we could get her. We'll find out very soon … if we've spoke to her. There are a lot of names that have been bandied around. We've got to keep quiet about it … we're very, very, close — I think were very close."
Britney Spears would be such a coup for X Factor.
Her sitting next to Simon Cowell would be amazing!
Don't U think???
