“She wants a spot on the judging panel,” a source close to Jackson told the magazine.
In addition, Janet tried to dodge questions about a possible participation as a judge on the show.
Questioned on this subject by Anderson Cooper, the 45-year-old singer juggled nervously with the answer.
Cooper asked Jackson if she is currently a part of The X Factor judging panel.
“Oh my God. (laughs) … No, I’m not a judge on The X Factor. … But that’s all I really think I should say,” she replied.
Janet could be replacing Nicole Scherzinger and/or Paula Abdul, who were dropped from the singing competition after the first season.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, singers Pink and Katy Perry are also coveted by the production.
