Kim Kardashian as an X Factor UK Mentor? Simon Cowell Reacts
Kim Kardashian’s singing skills leave a lot to be desired — we highly doubt anyone out there claims “Jam (Turn It Up)” as their fave song — but might she make a good mentor on a singing competition? Well, rumor has it X Factor UK’s Cheryl Cole is absolutely dying for Kim to join the show as a mentor for next season’s hopefuls. Simon Cowell, however, doesn’t exactly seem sold on the idea.
“Yeah right,” Simon tersely replied to Entertainmentwise.com’s request for comment. We wonder if they explained to him Cheryl’s supposed reasoning for why Kim would make such a great addition.
According to the UK’sDaily Star, Cheryl believes that while Kim may not have much knowledge to impart when it comes to music, she certainly knows a lot about how to deal with the pressures of fame. "The idea is that Kim would fly over and give special media training to the acts toward the end of the show,” the tabloid explains.
The story also rationalizes that adding Kim to the show would bolster ratings. But regardless of what the E! star could bring to the table, Simon’s clearly not into the idea. Or maybe his “yeah right” is meant to imply that Kim would never be interested?
Either way, it doesn’t sound like this will ever come to pass. Sorry, Cheryl!
