Simon Cowell Plotting To Steal Jessie J?
With 'The Voice' having launched on Saturday to colossal ratings, with 9.8 million viewers tuning in to the BBC One talent show, Simon Cowell is said to be seething and is plotting to steal Jessie J from the rival talent show. Cowell is apparently offering Jessie J a cool £600,000 to join 'The X Factor, which is triple what she is currently earning on 'The Voice'...
Simon Cowell was recently reported as saying: "I love [Jessie J]. She's one of the best things to come out of British music in years. I want to snap her up." A source from the BBC told The People: "[Simon] thinks Jessie is a huge star. He wants her and he will do anything to make sure she is his."
But whether or not this is likely scenario is debatable, with Jessie J recently telling The Sunday Mirror: "A lot of people were, like, ‘Why aren’t you doing 'Britain’s Got Talent' or 'The X Factor'? But I think it’s really important in your career to pick things that really represent you as a person."
Better luck next time, Simon.
