LA Reid: Rihanna Should Replace Me On ‘X Factor’

Now that L.A. has announced he will not return for another season of ‘ The X Factor,’ he’s suggesting Rihanna replace him on the show. Keep reading for all the exclusive details!

L.A. Reid has found his replacement for The X Factor — he wants none other than Rihanna to take his spot at the judge’s table, HollywoodLife.com is exclusively reporting.

We caught up with L.A. in Los Angeles at the X Factor finale on December 20 and asked who he would want to replace him on the show.

“I think Rihanna should fill my spot, so that I have a reason to watch,” L.A. said as he laughed.

That’s not a bad idea, but the question is — will Rihanna make time to be a judge on the show?

Rihanna had an incredible 2012 in terms of her career!

She was on the cover of numerous fashion magazines — both domestically and overseas, she participated in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, completed her 777 Tour, where she toured seven countries in seven days and she released her Unapologetic album in November.

Who knows — maybe she could incorporate X Factor into her hectic schedule, but only time will tell.

As of right now, RiRi is chillaxing in her native Barbados at an uber chic beach front penthouse with family and friends.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, the 24-year-old singer was spotted at the One Sandy Lane resort on Tuesday Dec. 19, in a tiny green and gold bikini as she sipped on what appeared to be a bottle of beer.

Rihanna took a quick flight to Barbados, where she was raised before coming to the United States to launch her music career, following her performance of “Diamonds” on the Dec. 18 finale of The Voice.

Rihanna always returns to Barbados for Christmas and was reported to be joined by Chris Brown before their split this week. Our sources tell HollywoodLife.com that Chris is still welcome to join her.

Sound off, HollywoodLifers. Will Rihanna join X Factor?

Shouldn’t the replacement know something about talent to do this job? Or if not, stage presence at least?

It’s bad enough they had Britney, now that she’s leaving maybe a skilled person should replace HER.

You know good and well, as does he, that the acts on that show (sadly) can outperform Rihanna any day. Oh, L.A. you just lost so many points…

I think L.A. was making a joke, he’s saying that he finds Rihanna hot, so he’d watch if she were on. I don’t think Ri actually being on the show is even a consideration.

Firstly I LOVE me some Ri. But I feel like the show is flopping because the focus is more on the judges and presenters (getting the most relevant ones just for ratings) when the focus should be on the new found talent which is the objective of xfactor, to find new talent, groom it then launch it. Theyve lost the plot

If Rihanna join X factor as a judge, I’m sure it would really boost ratings. I stopped watching after the first season, but would definitely watch again if Rih joined, but of course it’s her decision if she can balance all her other projects too.

Rihanna is at her height of her career, and she shouldn’t right now! no! maybe in another year! when she sealed the deal where she wants to be, now if it wasn’t her Chris Brown wouldn’t be where he’s at right now! neither, it was Rihanna that boost his career so! He better be careful! he could loose it all, because of his actions! here today gone tomorrow Chris Brown! Rihanna and you make it exciting!

First of all, Rihanna is likely too hungover and/or too high to make it to work on time if she actually had a steady job. Beyond that, FOX cannot afford to pay both Rihanna and Britney Spears, so Rihanna would be replacing Britney, not LA Reid. They should replace Reid with an industry insider. Then they can replace Britney with a star name, like Rihanna. But I seriously doubt Rihanna would do it.

@Annbarb…Rihanna is a big star and we love her. All we are saying is at the height of her career X-Factor is not the place for her. She is to busy to take that offer. Look at J.Lo; she quit Idol to go on tour. Christina wont be returning to Voice right now due to “TOUR”
