Janet Jackson hints at X Factor USA role

Janet Jackson has sparked rumours she is about to join X Factor USA following a cagey interview with Anderson Cooper.

The 45-year-old superstar appeared to be caught off guard when the CNN anchorman asked if she had been approached to fill one of the judging roles left by the departures of Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul during a chat on his '360' show.

Whilst laughing and stumbling over her words, she replied: “No I’m not a judge on The X Factor.”

But when pressed for further clarification by Cooper, she warily responded: “No, I am not, but that’s all I really think I should say.”

The interview came just days after The Hollywood Reporter claimed Jackson was already in early talks with Simon Cowell about the 2012 series, which the likes of Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and Pink have also been linked with.
