Beyoncé Plans to Spend Break As ‘X Factor’ Judge

So having rescued Haiti with a slightly tacky reworking of “Halo”, what, apart from a well-deserved break, is next for Beyoncé? Well, if all goes according to some elaborate blueprints drawn up by noted Robert Pattinson aficionado Simon Cowell, then a stint on his hit British series X Factor as a guest judge.

(‘DiggThis’)This would then make Beyoncé the third pop diva to serve on the judges’ panel, the other two being Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue (in whose case, the term “pop diva” is strictly an embellishment.)

Confides a source, possibly Minogue’s unborn baby, “Simon leaves nothing to chance and is planning for the future already. He wants to bring in Beyoncé. And what Simon wants, Simon gets. Expect Beyoncé on the panel. Nothing has been confirmed yet because the deal hasn’t been sealed…but she’ll be there in some form.”

Adds the source, “It’s difficult to get A-listers to commit to a six-month slot as a full judge, but a fortnight is a lot simpler. Simon wants to extend the mentoring to the judging panel so you get to hear what the stars really think.” More complications have arisen though, as Cole herself may leave the talent show at the end of its next season, to pursue motherhood or the American Dream.
