What an interesting equation indeed!
With the departure of L.A. Reid and next season's future in Simon Cowell's hands, the X Factor king is reportedly trying to round up Rihanna and Chris Brown for the judging panel!
But wait… get this… Simon is said to be offering Rih a spot on either US or UK version!!
According to sources, Simon plans to meet with RiRi over the holiday to talk business. Her fiery personality has his eyes seeing dollar signs!! $$$
Spilling the tea, the insider says:
"Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality. As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters."
Hmm… well, he does like to spend Christmas on Barbados. And that's where Rih meets up with her family… sooo, this could actually pan out well if it's true!
As for Breezy, it's been rumored that Simon wants him to replace L.A., but a spokesperson for Simon has denounced the report as 100% false.
(…what a relief! Cuz if Breezy replaced Reid, that would mean another judge would get the boot if Rih chose the US show! And we'd hate to see either go!)
So seeing as how there's no word yet on the RiRi rumor, she could very well end up sitting next to both Britney Spears and Demi Lovato!
Oh we like this. We like it, like it!!
But Simon! If she says no, Perez would LOVE to contribute! XX
