Grammy-winning singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter is reportedly getting sought after for $100 million to take her talents to the small screen and become a judge on reality music competition television show, "The X-Factor."
According to reports, the million dollar gig would be for a full-time role.
Simon Cowell is offering Beyonce an annual salary of $100 million to be a full-time judge on The X-Factor, according to reports online. It would be the highest TV salary ever, and could be the perfect job for Beyonce, 30, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy, her first child with husband Jay-Z, last month. The X-Factor gig could allow the Grammy winning singer to stay in the public eye during her baby's first years without having to tour. (Winnipeg Press)
The opportunity comes in light of vacancies by former judges.
Is Beyonce the next X Factor judge? The New York Post is reporting that the new mom and pop diva is being offered $100 million a year by Simon Cowell to jon the show after the exit of Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. The report also claims she's like to stop touring and stay in one place for her daughter Blue Ivy for the next few years. Mariah Carey has also been mentioned as a possible candidate for the panel with holdover L.A. Reid. (HITS Daily Double)
No stranger to the show, Beyonce previously appeared on "The X-Factor" four years ago.
Beyonce, who has been said to be looking for a job that would keep her closer to home, appeared on the British version of "X Factor" in 2008. While this might qualify as being closer to home, no word on whether $100 million was within her expected salary range. (Mercury News)
Last year, Young Money star Nicki Minaj met with Cowell to reportedly speak on having a role on "X-Factor."
"I can't talk about that, but I love Simon very dearly," the Lil Wayne protégé answered in a British accent. "He's such an amazing man. I had the pleasure of meeting him and my life will never be the same, darling. I told him that. I was absolutely in love with him prior to meeting him. And now that I've met him, it's like I dream about him every night." (MTV)
