Janet Jackson says ‘No’ to The X Factor

Janet Jackson will not be a judge on The X Factor, the Insider.com reports. Janet has officially declined, and her team said that there have been no meetings between her and The X Factor about being a judge.

So now the attention goes back to Britney Spears. Spin it, Simon Cowell!

From The Insider:

Janet Jackson tells TheInsider.com that she is “very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn’t be possible.”

Citing a previous commitment to her Number Ones Up Close and Personal Tour (which kicks off again this summer) and Lionsgate (the studio behind Tyler Perry’s movies), Janet simply felt taking on a TV gig would be “unrealistic” at this time.

Janet’s team added, “There have been absolutely no meetings between Janet and anyone with regard to X-Factor,” so apparently her rumored participation was simply a fan fabrication.

Go Britney!!!  I never thought it was going to work with Janet.  Lacking personality... probably wouldn't tolerate being portrayed as anything but nice.  Is it a rumor that Fergie is being considered?  She'd be good.

 @Klope62 She's not coming back Gabe. FOX wants to run away from American Idol as much as possible. It's like poison now. :) 

 

Having Paula with Simon on the panel reminded people too much of Idol and FOX doesn't want any of that anymore.
