Simon Cowell "flattered" but quiet on Britney Spears X Factor USA gossip

Simon Cowell has admitted that he is flattered by reports that Britney Spears could be interested in taking up a judging role on X Factor USA.

However, he's keeping quiet on the rumours - suggesting that any speculation should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The Mirror reports that the music mogul spoke to the press yesterday (February 22) and appeared to deflect questioning when asked about media reports that Spears would be game for a shot at X Factor USA. He said:

"Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes. I've learned a big lesson: keep your mouth shut. Don’t give it all away. There is a load of speculation. Some true and some not true. It's true to say there are a lot more people who have entered the frame this year and we really waited to see who was going to contact us before we actually contacted people."
