Answer The Phone, Leo! Five Million $$$ Is Calling!

Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprio


Wow! Nice work if you can get it!

Sources are reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio has agreed to shoot a TV commercial overseas for a Chinese cell phone company, Guangdong OPPO Mobile Telecommunications Corp. He'll fly over to Asia late in April and the commercial will air sometime later this year.

His pay-out for this seemingly simple gig? $5 million!!!

Damn! How much yuan is that?!?!?!

We're hearing that this deal will be among the most lucrative one-off endorsement deals to date for Leo. (Tag Heuer and Suzuki paid him pretty handsomely as well for the ads he did for them.)

You might think that's pretty excessive and you'd be right - but considering all the good Leo does, we imagine he is going to be spreading that wealth around.

The Xcitement Continues! Simon Gives Plenty Of Deets On New X Factor!

simon talks more about x factor

We were pretty excited yesterday when we learned that the jackpot for the upcoming U.S. X Factor would be a $5 million record deal.

Now, Simon Cowell has decided to give plenty of new deets on the show.

Here's what he had to say about the gargantuan grand prize:

"By putting up that kind of prize money, it's a massive, massive risk. But it's also an incredible incentive. I think it puts everybody, rightly, under an enormous amount of pressure. I didn't want to go into this show without a feeling a certain amount of pressure, because with pressure, you've got to find a star."

"I think if we can't find a global star, then I would say we failed. I can't put it any clearer than that. There is that person or that group sitting in America right now waiting to be discovered. [The money proves] we are genuinely, genuinely serious about this. We believe that there is somebody with that star quality out there."

We can certainly see you're taking this seriously, Simon. No question there.

Here's Cowell on X Factor judges:

"I wanted to do a show where judges could help competitors on a weekly basis. It's more interesting to me; it definitely gives me something more to do. When an artist wins, you win. It really does become an incredible competition with judges, in a way more than the artists, because we don't pretend to like each other."

"I have to put people on this panel who I genuinely think could be better than me, so it becomes a real competition. It is a very, very different principle. It's easy to make comments, but when you have to put together the entire performance yourself and your fellow judges are judging you, it's very intimidating."

"I've started to cringe over the years when I started to see people being booked as the mean judge and just being gratuitously rude for the sake of it. I just don't like that. I have my own style. I like to think I'm honest. I wouldn't sugarcoat something just to make myself popular, and I'm going to try and be consistent to how I've been over the years. That's the way I'm going to approach it."

And here's Simon on opening up the show to younger auditioners:

"I think times have changed. There are some incredibly talented young kids out there. We've started to see a trend of what kids this age are capable of doing. … They've got their own opinions; they know what they're doing. You look at someone like Willow Smith — here's a trend happening at the moment. I think it would have been wrong to exclude them."

All sounds very Xciting, Simon! We can't wait!

Talented People, Rejoice! X Factor Jackpot Will Be $5 Million!!!

x factor jackpot to be 5 million dollars

Way to raise those stakes!

Simon Cowell, FOX, and the rest of the folks behind the upcoming U.S. X Factor have announced via press release that the winner of the competition series will receive a $5 million record deal!!!

This will be the "largest guaranteed prize in television history!" SO intense!

Auditions start on Mar. 27 at the L.A. Sports Arena, and they'll continue at TBD venues/dates in New York/New Jersey, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, and Dallas.

Here's what Simon had to say about it:

“I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group. I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent, and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5 million recording contract. I’m doing this show in America because I genuinely believe we can find a superstar.”

We still can't get over it! A $5 million jackpot???

Maybe Perez should audition! Have U heard our rendition of I'm Too Sexy???


Will U try out for the U.S. X Factor?
