Jessica Simpson to Judge X Factor?

by at . Comments

Jessica Simpson is the latest celeb rumored to be joining L.A. Reid as a judge on Simon Cowell's highly anticipated X Factor. She confirmed this - and her interest.

"They have definitely talked to me about X Factor," Simpson told WWD, adding of the upcoming show, "I think it would be a lot of fun. It's definitely my life."

"To be a mentor for up-and-coming artists is right up my alley. I would have loved to have had a mentor. I love watching people's dreams come true."

MENTOR: Jessica Simpson would be, like, so amazing as one.

The 30-year-old singer, who broke out at age 19 but has not had a hit song in years, still keeps mighty busy these days with a highly successful fashion empire.

She's also engaged to Eric Johnson. But they might elope anyway, so she can spare the time, and add credibility to the panel. Hey, she was a popular singer.

Rumors also hint that Nicole Scherzinger and British X Factor judge and pop star Cheryl Cole may join the panel, with Cowell confirming she's "in the mix."

Auditions for the show have already begun, so the judges (and hosts) will surely be confirmed soon. What do you think? Does Jess have what it takes?

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
