It's X Factor Judge Rumor Time Again


No matter how many times Simon Cowell whispers into a reporter's ear that he is thinking of Britney Spears or LeAnn Rimes or now Fergie as a judge on X Factor, remember one thing. It is Simon's show and he wants to be the biggest star. He wants ratings, but not at the expense of the spotlight on him. In England, Cheryl Cole was a bigger star. Buh Bye. So, yesterday when I heard Fergie was the latest to be considered it seems like part of a plan to create a buzz and what will probably end up being is Simon, LA Reid and someone who you know, but is not a destination judge. Someone like Carnie Wilson who I wrote about earlier today or someone from The Bangles or someone from TLC. Think a Dancing With The Stars contestant list and that is the pool I think the judge will ultimately come from.

When did Fergie get jowls?

MontanaMarriott said...

This will so be some has been like Taylor Dayne, Jody Watley, etc.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

So SK then? Wait, I don't watch these shows....

I thought the photo was of Kirstie Alley.

spacecowboy78 said...

Yeah really, how old is she for real? Or is that just what meth does?

Audrey said...

I had Jody's album in the late 80's! ;)

Leann was never a contender for the opening. She wants to be and has aggressively been planting stories that she's being considered. But he's not going to hire her. No way/no how.
What's even funnier is one of the stories she planted in gossip blogs listed that she had a personal call from a producer of X-Factor to come in and talk to them. But she gave the WRONG name! She listed the producer of American Idol!! Once everyone started tweeting her laughing at how stupid she is-she had them take the name out of the stories. It appeared in Daily Mail, Just Jared and Celebrity Cafe. *snicker*

EmEyeKay said...

That's an awful photo. I thought it was Kirstie, too! Kirstie is 60. How old is Fergie?

Never watched X Factor, probably won't start now.

NernersHuman said...

Wow, that's a baaaaad picture of Fergie.

EmEyeKay said...

She's about to turn 37, for anyone who cares...

Lauren said...

Well, Fergie looks AWFUL...

MISCH said...

Bad, bad photo

selectivesoul said...

@EmEyeKay What? No f'ing way! I'm 37 and I look 5 X's better than her in this pic. Could it be a bad pic-sure but she has that 60 year old throat sag thing. Meth?

EmEyeKay said...

@selectivesoul, I was as surprised as you, but I googled it. She looks older than I do, for sure. That is one bad photo!

Was the meth thing just a rumor, or truth? I know that drug is completely evil, but I don't remember if Fergie/meth was something she's spoken about - ?

Jennifer H. said...

Are those gray roots peeping through? She looks on the verge of little old lady in that pic!

selectivesoul said...

@EmEyeKay I've only heard rumors about it too. But that is very strange. Drugs are hard on the body-but so is alcohol and cheating husbands. That or she lied about her age? Who knows-but I'm shocked at her neck situation.

Sherry said...

I read an interview years ago where Fergie herself talked about her drug use and how she hid from her family for about a year. She cleaned up her act and THEN got the call for BEP's. She was in her early 20's and was singing but needed a break.
Anyway, yeah, thems some grey roots there alright. Maybe this was for an acting job where she plays an old lady? I didn;t look this bad at 37 either. Wow. Bad, bad, picture,.

crila16 said...

That is most definitely not a flattering pic of Fergie. She doesn't look like that on a normal basis. I have my bad pic moments too. Either way, this pic is far more flattering than the one when she was onstage when she pee'd in her pants trying to belt out the song.

RedHeadMed said...

Do the gray roots mean she is preggers?

Brenda Love said...

The Bangles? Susanna Hoffs would rule

EmEyeKay said...

Hi @Sherry! Thanks for the info. Was fuzzy on all that, but thought she'd talked about abusing something.

Del Riser said...

I hope this is just a bad angle, poor pic kind of thing. I like how Fergie looks, she has a strong face, the cheek bones, the arched brow, the dimple in her chin. Not so much now with the grey roots, jowls, and the beginning of turkey neck.

As for Simon I can't believe anyone is listening to his *latest announcement* anymore. He MUST be the star, so it will be someone fairly forgettable.

Boriqua said...

I do not believe for one second that Fergie is younger than me (said the still jowl-free woman). And if she is, she should absolutely be the poster child for the Meth Is Bad, M'kay? campaign.

Jasmine said...

I have friends that are in their 20's (!) who partied hard with booze and meth for a handful of years in their teens/early 20s and now look much older than what they are. So I am assumed by the time you're on the wrong side of your 30s, well, shit be catching up to you!

For real, I am 29 and people I went to high school with who smoke and drink (even just socially on the weekends) are starting to reap those vices in their face. It's insane how quickly shit can catch up to you.

People have told me I look young for my age and the first thing I always say is- I dont drink/do drugs/smoke/or tan. And that's pretty much it. Being boring gives you a younger face, I guess. HAHAHA

Jasmine said...

*assuming

Susan said...

Enty, you totally could have run a better pic of Fergie! I like her. I know that's not a popular opinion on here. She had my heart from the Kids Inc. days. Taking it back!

This show sounds like a snoozefest. Who watches this shit?? Just give me Mad Men already.

Tempestuous Grape said...

Hmmm, I didn't realize she was smuggling old lady hair.

Texshan said...

I'll co-sign that, Jasmine. I have red hair and super-white skin, so I don't go out in the sun. I never smoked, only have a couple of social drinks a month, and never did drugs (except X a few times in clubs - hey, it was the 80's). I've never gone to bed wearing makeup and moisturize like nobody's business. I don't have any wrinkles or lines and feel comfortable enough with my natural face to go to work most days without any makeup beyond lipstick and eyeliner. Plus, I live in an area with really high humidity, so that helps hold the wrinkles at bay. I did start going grey at 16, but I stay on top of coloring my hair so that doesn't age me. I regularly get carded when ordering a glass of wine. I'm 42. Being boring has its rewards.

Look at Fergie's puffed-up lips and lines around her mouth, though! And her droopy upper brows and jaw! Yeesh! And her throat lines are terrible. Not good, not good at all.

Further proof that Josh Duhamel or however you spell it hates his penis.

warmislandsun said...

Aww, that's mean. That is a really unfotunate angle for her. For all her faults, she is attractive. Poor Fergie.

Anonymous said...

on Access Hollywood Live yesterday, Simon Cowell said he was neither confirming or denying that Janet Jackson would be one of the judges.

mynerva said...

Jesus, Fergie is as rough as a bears arse

Caroline said...

What happened to her face?

Mooshki said...

selectivesoul, that's hysterical! LeAnn, you are BUSTED!!!

Mod7 said...

Oh Fergie that Meth went to WERK on ur face

Mod7 said...

Meth went to WERK on her face!

Mod7 said...

This is SO weird! I LOVE Fergie thanks to kids inc and I CAN NOT wait until Mad Men is back!!! GO GURL!

Lelaina Pierce said...

Bad angle/bad picture. She's still married to Josh Duhamel, at the end of the day. She must be doing something right! ;)

This whole X factor thing is certainly not going the way Simon thought it would, I imagine.
