Rihanna to Guest Judge on ‘X Factor’

Rihanna

“The X Factor” is getting an extra shot of star power. Rihanna has reportedly signed on to guest judge on the U.S. edition of Simon Cowell’s singing competition.

Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who signed the pop star to Island Def Jam in 2005, has enlisted her to help him decide which contestants to mentor as the season gets underway, according to TMZ.

She will be in the company of fellow diva Mariah Carey, who will serve as Simon Cowell’s guest, as PEOPLE previously reported.

Rihanna is working on her sixth album and recently did a photo shoot with Ellen von Unwerth, who shot the packaging for Rated R. She was seen sporting a new hair color on the streets of New York over the weekend.

“The X Factor” premieres September 21 with judges Cowell, Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, and Paula Abdul.

    The Hardcore Hater

    Hardcore haters go through all of the trouble of registering on a message board, they have more posts than most hardcore stans, they always have something negative to say, they are contrary just for the sake of contrary, they never like anything, and their sole purpose seems to be to piss off stans. Hardcore haters continually look for videos, news articles, or anything with a comment section so they can vent their frustration. This shows that you are either unhappy with yourself or just bored if you have nothing else to do but ruin the stan experience for other people. x… Dex Ter :)…

    @rihannastan!, Hunni, Rihanna is all auto-tune. So when your comparing somebody to the King at least come with Mariah or Alicia. Rihanna bi*ch please Katy Perry is hotter than Rihanna & she knows it that’s why she kisses her backside! Loud? No hunni Bey went platinum before Rihanna and plus her album was leaked 3 weeks before release date and still slayed with going platinum within a month. Aaaand cooome correct your a contridiction, your not even saying she’s got talent etc etc. Albums/single numbers and popularity doesn’t mean shit when your not winning awards for them (i.e. grammy’s). Tell your home girl rookie bucket head to sit down!!!

    @rihluv, how dumb can 1 get? 4 has been out like 2 mnths or so Louds been out forever and LOUD is a generic POP dance album Yes that’s What Rihanna Is she is Generic She does what’s hot and 4 is a album with substance not singing cheesy lines like S&M and 4 is a album with slow R&B songs And for a r&b album to sell like that Bey Is def a big name Rihanna could never do it RATED R any1? That album didn’t do well and it wasn’t all urban! Now imagine Rihanna making “4″ she would flop harder than Kevin Ferdeline

    @Sleazy, “Loud is a generic pop dance album”. You have clearly not listened to the album. Only Girl, S&M and possibly Complicated are the only songs on there that are dance-pop. 3 out of 11 OR cant u count?

    @kingb bish, Why is a number 1 album sooooo important to rihanna haters? LOUD has sold 5.3 million WW in less than a year and did not go to no1 in america. GGGB sold 9 million WW and did not go to no1 in america. Although the US is a big market, it isnt the only market in the world

    THIS IS FUNNY HOW THE BEY FANS ARE TRYNA AIM AT RIHANNA’S PEDISTAL.. BUT FAIL TO REALIZE THAT THAT SHIT IS WAAYYY TO HIGH. THERE ACTUALLY 5 TO 6 YEARS LATE!! SHE’S TO POWERFUL IN THE GAME AND SHE REALLY CANNOT BE STOPPED. SORRRY TO BURST ANYONES BUBBLE. IT HURTS I KNOW BECAUSE YOU GUYS REALLY WANTED TO THROW HER DOWN!! PEOPLE FAIL TO REALIZE THAT RIHANNA IS ALREADY A WORLDWIDE SUPERSTAR FOR HER MUSIC AND HER LOOKS SO BY 10000 OUT OF MILLIONS SAYING SHE’S NOT TALENTED DOESNT DO ANYTHING TO HER. AT THE END OF THE DAY THATS YOUR AND THE REST OPINONS. I REMEMBER WHEN BEYONCE WAS RIHANNA’S AGE PEOPLE ALWAAYYSS TALKED SHIT ABOUT HER AND I’D GET MAD AS HELL, BUT GRADUALLY BEYONCE STARTED TO SHUT SHIT DOWN!. YOU GUYS ARE ONLY HERE TO START CONTROVERSY BETWEEN THE TWO. JUST JOINING THE BAND WAGGIN, NOTHING MUSIC WISE. RIHANNA IS A WORLDWIDE SUPERSTAR AND YOUR GONNA HAVE TO DEAL. RIHANNA NEVER USED AUTOTUNE AND IF SHE DID IT WAS TO MAKE THE SONG EVEN HOTTER. THESE RUMORS ARE OFF THE HOOK. SHE DOESNT NEED IT. RIHANNA IS A BIGGGGGGGGGGGG THREAT!!! ITS AMAZING, 5 CD, TOURS, MAJOR DEALS, CAMPAIGN ETC. SHE’S OUT THERE AND PEOPLE ARE MAD.

    “Stay mad”, “Why you mad?”, “Stay pressed”, “Your fave is being slayed by (…)”, “Ci-Error”, “Beyawncé”, “You’re a basic bitch”, “SHE SLAYED!”, “Haters be mad ’cause they’re fave isn’t doing shit”

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    I hereby present to you; Rap-Up’s vocabulary. All of you are “mad”, “pressed”, “hating” and, most of all, “basic”.
    Let’s post some comments that make sense, from now on. This is really getting annoying.

    Initially I thought it was annoying that she was releasing music every year but everytime she does her songs get better and better. So for me I’m excited to see what she’s releasing. Rated R and Loud were really great to me, I could sit and let every track play without skipping. And I like that her look evolves as well.

    THERE ABSOUTELY NO NEED TO POINT OUT THE OBVIOUS!! TALENT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. I LOVE LOVE LOVE RIHANNA AND I HAVE TO ADMIT SHE GETS ANNOYING ONCE IN A WHILE. BUT EVERY ARTIST IN THE SPOT LIGHT DOES. BUT YOU CANNOT DISS HER. SHES TO GONE!!! SHE’S IN THE GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORD 4 music, AND SHE SLAYS THE CHARTS. VERY talented

    @tallent,

    I think it’s unfair to say most of african-american woman hate on Rihanna. I’ve seen a fair share of EVERY race say their nay’s about Riri.

    Don’t overgeneralize. It’s impossible to throw a group of people into one group UNLESS you know that group of people very well. Maybe YOU need to hang out with a variety of cultures to get a better idea of what people think of her.

    Someone likes her. I do too! Best wishes rihanna…and this coming from a Nigerian-American!!!
