Finally, we can all go back to our less complicated lives.
She's a judge in the American version of The X Factor! Then she isn't! But then she still probably is! After weeks of speculation, the news is out! Cheryl Cole is NOT gonna be in the upcoming reality singing competition. Also, Nicole Scherzinger will indeed replace the British pop star in the judging panel together with Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid.
But Cole won't be entirely devastated because of this lost gig. Why? Because she'll still be paid $1.5 million dollars for her contract on the show! (Oh these overly paid celebrities.) In fact, according to reports, the production company behind The X Factor wanted to wait for Cheryl to quit. But I guess the show can't move on with her still lingering around, so Simon Cowell and Co. just decided to pay her out.
I dunno about you guys, but all these off screen drama is turning me off. But who am I kidding? I will still be glued to this new show come next season.
