Alanis Morissette Confirms She’s in Talks With ‘American Idol’
The Jagged Little Pill rocker told CNN at the Hollywood Rockwalk induction ceremony that she has “been in conversations about it, and that’s the degree to which I can share the info right now.”
So would the singer really be open to the position?
Morissette, 38, said she’d definitely be interested in the opportunity. “I live to mentor, so my heart is much more open to the idea of that than even 10 years ago when I, perhaps, wasn’t in a position to be able to offer much advice, solicited or otherwise.”
“But I love watching people and just getting really curious about what they want and what they need and what their goals are, and then I can support them. I would do it formally, for sure,” she added.
On Tuesday, Celebuzz reported that Minaj is “100 percent confirmed to judge American Idol.” Yet, FOX and Minaj’s reps have not confirmed. Meanwhile Iglesias’ rep told Celebuzz, “Idol has expressed a lot of interest but no final word on either side yet.”
A report from The Hollywood Reporter indicated these three along with Keith Urban could make up a four-judge panel for the new season if executives decide to expand past three judges.
FOX told Celebuzz they have no comment on Morissette’s statements.
