Janet Jackson rules herself out of X Factor USA role
Janet Jackson has distanced herself from reports she could be set to land a judging role on the next series of X Factor USA.
Speculation had been rife that Jackson was being lined up to fill one of the vacant seats on the judging panel of the US version of the popular TV talent show.
Jackson had appeared coy when asked about the possible role on American TV.
But the singer confirmed to The Insider that she won't be appearing on the next series of the show. She said:
"[I am] very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn't be possible."
Jackson's representatives added: "There have been absolutely no meetings between Janet and anyone with regard to X-Factor."
Gossip however remains over Britney Spears and a possible role on X Factor USA, with boss Simon Cowell going public with his admiration for the pop superstar.
