U.S singer Beyonce Knowles launches her collection House of Dereon in London, during London Fashion week, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011.

New mom Beyoncé Knowles is reportedly being offered $100 million a year to become a judge on The X Factor. She¹d be filling one of the two seats left open when producer Simon Cowell fired judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger earlier this week. X Factor still lags behind rival American Idol in viewership, but Cowell reportedly thinks that Blue Ivy’s mom is the one to turn things around. Beyoncé, who has been said to be looking for a job that would keep her closer to home, appeared on the British version of X Factor in 2008.
