ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — If Janet Jackson is in negotiations to serve as a judge on The X Factor, she’s playing her cards close to the vest.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on his talk show set to air Monday, she reportedly denies she will be a judge on the Fox competition.

However, The Hollywood Reporter says Jackson is in preliminary talks to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the show. The publication further states that Cowell would like to bring Pink on board, too.

Cowell is looking to replace the judges’ slots vacated by Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
