Beyonce, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer international pop star. According to MediaTakeout, Simon Cowell has allegedly begun courting Beyonce as a replacement judge for The X Factor; the exit of Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger has left two open chairs in the show’s panel (right next to L.A. Reid), and Simon desperately wants a big name to fill them. Don’t get us wrong. We can certainly believe that Simon would want Beyonce on the show. They could just train the camera on Bey for two hours and we’re pretty sure no one would complain. Or even miss the contestants.
No, the bigger question mark in our minds has to do with how much Simon is allegedly offering Beyonce to get her on board: $500 million, or $100 million per year for a five season commitment. You guys. That is all the money. That is literally all the money our brains can comprehend. The American financial system would revolve entirely around how gently Beyonce can let down a pitchy, blubbering teenager. No word on whether Bey will accept the offer, but, now that we think about it…that isn’t the worst idea we’ve heard for stimulating the economy.
