Now that L.A. Reid has announced that he will be leaving “The X Factor” for its third season and returning to his duties as head honcho of Epic Records, the speculation has begun as to who will be replacing him.
According to the latest gossip, Rihanna is Simon Cowell’s number one choice to replace L.A. on the show. She would make the show fresh and fun again even though there have been reports that the show’s ratings have taken a dive. It’s being said that Simon is sacrificing some of his Christmas break time in order to convince the singer to become a judge on the hit talent competition.
He’s going to Barbados for the holidays and the rumor is that he’s doing that to have a chat with Rihanna about the possibilities of her taking a role on the show. A source revealed that “Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality. As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her standing in music, she is also feisty.”
