X Factor role rumoured ahead of Rihanna tour

Tuesday, 25th Jan 2011

People with Rihanna tour tickets could see more of the star on TV ahead of the dates as she is rumoured to be taking an X Factor role.

It is thought that the producers of the new American version of the show are keen for the Barbadian singer to take a chair on the panel in its first series, the Sun has reported.

However, it could be bad news for Cheryl Cole, as it seems that if Rihanna is given the job, it will be at her expense as people behind the show do not think she is well-known enough in the US.

A source told the newspaper: "They are more keen to get a big US star like Katy or Rihanna on the panel - someone who will bring credibility to the show and who is already popular in the US."

Whether or not the Umbrella singer decides to take the job, she will still be hitting the UK in October 2011 to play a series of gigs in cities including London and Manchester.
