Whenever we get good news, we like to pop open some champagne and slip into the least binding pair of pants we own. Was Rihanna doing the same thing at LAX to celebrate an new X-Factor judging gig? According to MediaTakeOut, the Talk That Talk singer is allegedly in negotiations to earn some serious cash, between $15 and $20 million a year, to take a seat beside to Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the competition show next season. We’re just saying, that would be a great reason to treat oneself to the awesomeness of ’80s hip-hop leisure wear, rather than yet another pair of bead-encrusted booty shorts. Now we definitely hope this rumor is true. We’ll feel like the Sherlock Holmes of soft pants!
If rumors about RiRi’s new gig are accurate, however, does that mean she’ll be bumping Britney Spears as the show’s resident pop diva? “[Rihanna] wanted to be on X-Factor, but we all thought that [Britney Spears] had it,” MediaTakeOut’s source claims. “When [Rihanna] found out that they wanted her instead, she jumped at [the opportunity.]” Whether we’re reading Rihanna’s sweatpants signals correctly or not, it is true that there has been no official word on Spears being hired as of yet. We’ll know one way or the other the second we see Brit-Brit rocking some pajama jeans.
