Just a couple of days ago it was rumored that pop singer Rihanna was being courted by Simon Cowell to join The X Factor USA as a judge. Now, we’ve learned that Rihanna has denied the rumors of her joining Simon and L.A. Reid at the judges table when the show makes its return.
Rumor has it that Rihanna was chosen over Britney Spears for the judging spot. In a new interview with Daybreak, Rihanna has denied any involvement with the show.
She said, “I know, I haven’t heard about that. I haven’t had the call yet! I really didn’t, I haven’t heard about that.”
She also spoke of her acting debut in Battleship, saying, “I get that anxiety just before I’m about to do something big or when everybody’s going to be looking at me. When a room gets quiet like this just before the start of doing an interview, the butterflies do pop up.”
So where does Rihanna see herself in the future? She said, “In the next five years, the only real plan I have is professional. I’m really looking forward to seeing what life brings for me.”
