According to New York Post, singer/actress Janet Jackson is reportedly talking to Simon Cowell about joining “The X Factor.”
Jackson, a guest on this Monday’s episode of “Anderson,” is asked by Anderson Cooper about rumors she’s in talks to become a judge on the show, which canned judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul in a shakeup last month. Host Steve Jones was also fired.
Abdul had an affair with Jackson’s brother Jackie Jackson of The Jacksons while he was married to Enid Jackson who is now deceased.
“No, I am not [currently a judge on ‘The X Factor’], but that’s all I really think I should say,” Jackson says in a clip from the interview.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, singer Pink is also in the running.
