Britney Spears on Glee? What about Jessica Simpson as a judge on American idol? Britney seems a lock. Ryan Murphy creator of the hit teenage musical comedy show confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that they were indeed already in the writing process for the Spears episode.
Jessica Simpson on American idol? Maybe. Life & Style claims Jessica Simpson is in negotiations to become a judge on American Idol! “She’s met with producer-creator Simon Fuller several times,” an insider confirms to Life & Style. “They like her — she’s a good fit — and she likes it. Now it’s just a question of how to fit her in.”
The magazine reveals:
That’s because the Price of Beauty star isn’t necessarily being tapped to fill Simon Cowell’s shoes. “She’s not his replacement — they’re two entirely different personalities,” says the insider. “This is part of a massive overhaul of the show. There may be more judges, more opinions.” Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Chris Isaak and Harry Connick Jr. have also been mentioned as possible additions.
While her fans would love to see Jessica on Idol, so would her manager and father, Joe. “He’s been heavily involved with Idol,” a second insider tells Life & Style. “His client Travis Garland performed on the May 19 show. Joe was there to support him, and Jess wrote one of his songs.”
So will Jessica make her dad’s day by signing on? “She’d be crazy to turn it down,” says the first insider. “She’ll just say things without thinking, and that’s what they want — that’s great TV!”
Would Jessica help save idol or push it further down in the ratings?
