Add X Factor

YOU BE THE JUDGE: Earlier on Monday, E! News columnist Marc Malkin gave Scherzinger’s departure a different spin. "She wants to focus on her music career," said Malkin’s source. "She's spoken to Simon and he's given her his blessing. X Factor took a lot more of her time than she ever expected. She didn't have any time really to work on her music. She was doing X Factor six days a week." Scherzinger is currently rehearsing for her upcoming European tour that kicks off next month. A rep for Fox confirmed the news to Malkin. (1/31a)
