Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie Says No to ‘X Factor’

ALTSimon Cowell is getting turned down more times than a hotel bed. First Janet Jackson said “thanks but no thanks” to an offer to judge the British native’s music show, The X Factor. Then it was reported that Britney Spears rejected $10 million, refusing to do it for less than $20 million. And now Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie is blaming her busy schedule for the reason she is saying no to the job offer. “I mean, I love Simon and I love the show. It’s just that last year, nor this year, do I have the time to commit to that sort of commitment because I would be somebody who would really throw myself into it, as I do with all my projects.”

The 36-year-old singer (born Stacy Ann Ferguson) married actor Josh Duhamel three years ago and is enjoying the time off from music. “It was eight years straight of touring and it’s a lot. So, it’s time for me to be home. I’m starting to decorate my house and look at art and do those things.”

Unfortunately for Simon, “those things” don’t include The X Factor.

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
