Janet Jackson has cryptic reply to 'X Factor' question

Before his talent competition resumes with its second season, Simon Cowell is searching for a few talented judges - and rumors are circulating that Janet Jackson might be a contender.

The superstar singer will be on Anderson Cooper's daytime show "Anderson" on Monday, and in a promo, Cooper asks her if she might be a judge on the "X Factor."

All Jackson could do was laugh in response, saying ,"No, I am not....But that's really all I think I should say."

While we wait to see who will replace former judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, "X Factor" is gearing up for season 2 auditions.

According to Entertainment Weekly, online auditions will begin March 1, with open-call tryouts starting March 14 in Kansas City.

They'll then check out the talent in Austin on March 22; San Francisco on April 20; and Greensboro, North Carolina, on May 1, with additional cities to come.

Interested singers can also try out via audition booths, which will be erected in New Jersey, Phoenix, Nashville, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New England's Foxwoods Resort Casino between March 1 and March 14.

Cowell says in a statement that they've "torn up the rulebook" on auditions, allowing for potential contestants to enter the competition as many times as they want, and in as many cities as they want.

Those trying out can now be as young as 12, and it's also not a problem if a singer already has a management contract.

    Also...I like to troll the gay bars for big black j!ggaboo wieners. Sometimes I will use a watermelon or a piece of fried chicken to trap a j!ggaboo (I have noticed that Popeye's fried chicken works best).

    Toni Braxton and Pink would be better choices. They are testimony to what the winners can achieve when they sign with L.A. Reid. Off stage Janet is veeeery boring and mousy.

    I guess its true everybody has 15 minutes of fame. Enjoy yours poor little angry bloggers. You guys remind me of the kid in school who was a loud mouth so no one would know what a punk he was. I see now that guy just grows up to be an adult punk. Do me a favor & dont write something tough because how tough can you really be if you even know how to type?! Actually ALL you guys need a girlfriend & you wouldnt be so mad all the time. Release sometimes!…ok?
