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.
