Rihanna is the latest rumored name for judging The X Factor. I guess she’s in negotiations as we speak…Now for the bad news…they’re reporting that Brit Brit is a no-go for the show, and I’m super upset about the news. I’m sure the producers are thinking Rihanna would be great for the spot because she’s a big name right now, but she’s no Britney Spears.
When Rihanna was a mentor, she was good, but not great. I know she’s a mega pop artist, but I don’t know if she has what it takes to be a judge. I feel like they’re just grasping at straws to get a BIG name, but what they really need is someone that has a big name with amazing street cred that can judge.
My thoughts on on Rihanna–Love her music, but thumbs down.
**UPDATE** It was only a rumor.
