Oh man! Everything is coming up CHEZZA!

The Girls Aloud singer has just been officially selected as a judge on the American version of X Factor, and now, sources close to her are reporting that Jay-Z is attempting to sign her to his Roc Nation record label!

The insider explains:

"Jay-Z has been keen to sign Cheryl for some time now. He has been in talks with her UK management to bring her to Roc Nation and Cheryl herself is keen to sign with him as she is a big, big fan of him and Beyoncé. She knows signing to Roc Nation would guarantee her massive success."

Wonderful!

Definitely the right step if she wants to secure a chance at breaking into American mainstream!

Sign that dotted line, gurl! We cannot wait to see what kind of material you guys come up with!

So exciting!

Is Chezza Getting The Glee Treatment?!

Wow! This could get her exactly the kind of stateside exposure that she needs - ESPECIALLY if she'll be on the judges panel of The X Factor!

Sources close to the production Glee have revealed that series creator Ryan Murphy is apparently so taken with the HAWT Cheryl Cole track Parachute that he's reached out to her people so his cast can perform it on the show toward the beginning of the third season, when she's expected to make her US debut on Simon Cowell's aforementioned reality competition!

A source reveals:

"Murphy thinks 'Parachute' is pop perfection and he knows that Cheryl is going to be a big star in the States. It also helps that UK Glee fans will be aware of the song. He spoke to Cole's people and they agreed to let the track be used. They are now thinking about releasing the song as her debut US single as it will be great exposure for her if used on such a well-loved show such as Glee."

Excellent!

We have to say - this is probably the best marketing plan Chezza's people could have come up with to get people in the States to notice her, and it just fell into their laps!

People are going to LOVE the song - especially if there's a version done by Miz Lea Michele!

And if you haven't heard it already, check out the track and music video (above)!

We've got our fingers crossed, gurl! We'd love to see this pan out!

What do U think?? Will the US love Chezza as much as the UK does?

This is pretty good to hear, especially coming from her!

She explains:

"I'm sure she can do well in America, especially if she has will.i.am supporting her. Cheryl doesn't need any advice from me. She's been doing it for a while, hasn't she? I love Will. We've never done anything together but I love Black Eyed Peas and I'm a big fan of Fergie."

We certainly hope she's right!

It's about time that Chezza became a household name in the US of A!

Keira Knightley To Join R-Patz In Cronenberg's Cosmopolis?

keira knightley may join rpatz in cronenberg film

Way to maneuver yourself into the mainstream, Mr. Cronenberg! You've come a long way since your super bizarre film Naked Lunch.

According to recent reports, Keira Knightley MAY replace Marion Cotillard to star opposite Robert Pattinson in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.

As we mentioned before, the film is based on a Don DeLillo novel, and the story is about "financial wunderkind" Eric Packer who "risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day." His actions also put his life at risk, in this film which takes place in a "slightly futuristic metropolis."

Knightley would star as Eric Packer/R-Patz's love interest in the film.

According to IMDB, Knightley is also starring in director Cronenberg's upcoming Sigmund Freud/Carl Jung film A Dangerous Method, so we're thinking there's a good chance she'll make her way into this film as well.

Would U like to see Keira Knightley collaborate with Cronen-Patz?

Quote Of The Day

Filed under: Quote of the DayLissie

lissie-quote-of-the-day.jpg

"I still don't think I'm indie - I did a Perez Hilton interview last week. And that is kind of poppy, as mainstream as you can go. And he's actually lovely. Even in high school, I had friends from every different group, be it goth or gangsta or redneck. I feel like I don't sort of fit in one place. I'm curious about everything and everyone, and luckily our demographic has reflected that. There's not one place we fit in and that's been good because we get to do lots of different kinds of things."

Sharon Osbourne Doubts Chezza's Stateside Success!

sharon-osbourne-doubts-cheryl-coles-stateside-success

We're going to have to respectfully disagree on this one!

Sharon Osbourne recently revealed that she thinks Cheryl Cole, who has been reportedly offered a judging position on the US edition of The X Factor, may not be a good fit for stateside audiences, and instead thinks Nicole Scherzinger may be better off for the job!

She explains:

"Cheryl's perfect for England. She's the nation's sweetheart and they absolutely love her. But over here [in the US] it's Nicole's town. You have to think of the audience and most of them would never have heard of Girls Aloud. Nicole's great TV, has a huge following here in the States and people absolutely love her. Plus she's beautiful and talented. It takes a long time to make it in the States because it’s so huge. I think she's made the right decision to move out here. She couldn't just come over and do a show then pootle off. Cheryl reminds me of Bambi. She's got these big, brown, beautiful eyes and you just want to stroke her."

We have a feeling that our Chezza may be SLIGHTLY more well known than what you're assuming, bb!

And with the kind of success that she's had in the UK, we think that the slightest bit of media attention will launch her into superstardom here, too!

But we certainly shall see, won't we?

Here's hoping! Fingers crossed!
