Title: Janet Jackson Turns Down X-Factor

  • --
It seems like every woman in the music business wants to be the replacement judge on the next season of The X Factor. Well, all but one. Janet Jackson says “Thanks, but no thanks.” Reportedly Simon Cowell had Janet Jackson on his list to be a possible new judge. But, Janet says 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." Janet simply felt taking on a TV gig would be "unrealistic" at this time. She blames a previous commitment to her upcoming ‘Number Ones Up Close and Personal Tour’ and and a previous engagement with Lionsgate, the studio behind Tyler Perry's movies. Fans of the show aren’t too disappointed by Janet’s decision. Many think she wouldn’t be tough enough on the competitors or even have enough clever, or funny comments to make.
