(Newser) – Who could possibly take the place of Paula Abdul on X Factor? If Simon Cowell has his way, it will be Beyoncé—and he's offering her a cool $100 million per season (total contract: $500 million) to do it, according to Media Take Out. If she accepts the full-time judge job, she'll be the highest-paid person on TV, reports the New York Post, which notes that the idea isn't totally out-there: Beyoncé would reportedly prefer not to go on tour for the first few years of Blue Ivy's life, meaning this gig could ensure the world doesn't forget about her.
