If your coffers are as well-stacked as Simon Cowell’s treasury, you might as well reach for the stars. Rumor has it that the ‘X Factor’ proprietor offered Beyoncé an astounding $500 million to join as a new judge on the show.

Nothing is entirely confirmed and the number feels too high to be believed, but MediaTakeout claims their source is well-placed within Cowell’s camp. For his part, reality TV’s Grinch-in-chief admitted that he grows desperate to breathe new fire into the show.

As soon as news of this week’s ’X Factor shake up’ broke, the Twitterverse exploded in a smattering of rumors. Over the past few days, Beyoncé, Perez Hilton and Mariah Carey have risen to the top of the rumor crop.

Fox’s firing of Paula Abdul excites some interests, given sources started to gossip that the longtime “Idol” and “Factor” judge was removed for being too easy on contestants. On top of that, Hilton has made his new career out of being nice, and neither Beyoncé nor Mariah Carey are known to give acerbic criticisms.

All of this is, of course, without mention of the fact that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are new parents. While Jay-Z may grow content on releasing songs about daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé has not given any indication that she is neither willing nor ready to take on such a high profile gig.

Regardless, it remains abundantly clear that the show is going through a major make-or-break phase. The pressure rests on Cowell since he walked away from “American Idol” and bet his American TV career on “The X Factor. Unfortunately, his bet also poached on Abdul’s career and could effectively cripple the nation’s most popular television show.
