The “American Idol” judge has been pitching a talk show, according reports.
But don’t expect a music-centric program, a source says. “He wants to talk about things that will be hip next. He thinks he has his finger on the pulse.”
Jackson certainly does know what people like to watch.
The musician-turned-record executive is behind MTV’s super-popular “America’s Best Dance Crew,” which has been on the air for six season and is hosted by Mario Lopez.
If Jackson scored a TV deal, he’d be the second “Idol” judge from this past season to do so.
Jennifer Lopez is currently filming her own “Idol”-esque singing competition, “Q’Viva,” although it has yet to be picked up by a network.
