Fergie dismisses X-Factor USA rumours
Fergie has confirmed that she will not be taking up a judging role on the second series of The X-Factor USA.
The ‘Glamorous’ star has been the subject of constant rumours since Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul left the talent contest, but speaking to MTV News, she said that although her team have been in contact with the show, it’s not the right time at this stage in her career:
"I can't commit all the energy that these contestants deserve. This is their career, and right now, I've got different plants in my garden that are going on, and that's a really big tree that would take a lot of nurturing and energy. It's just not the right time right now."
The 36-year-old, whose bandmate Will.i.am will be seen as a coach on The Voice for the first time tomorrow night, admitted that although she won’t be involved, she’ll still be tuning into the new series:
"I think whatever they do ... Simon's a genius and he'll make the right decision. And it will all work out.
"I love Simon and I'll be watching the show. I'm excited to watch — but at home in my pajamas."
