Smashing Pumpkins Singer Wants 'X Factor' Job

Billy CorganSmashing Pumpkins star Billy Corgan has urged Simon Cowell to consider him for the vacant judging post on  TV talent show "The X Factor."
 
The rocker insists he'd jump at the chance to mentor wannabes if a role on the program was offered to him.
 
He tells Spinner.com, "I don't have a problem with (American) Idol or X Factor; I have a problem with when those things (talent shows) are not given the proper contextual hue. If there's an American Idol there should be a proper alternative counterbalance."
 
Corgan's news comes a week after rumors suggesting Britney Spears was in negotiations for a judging role on the show spread.
 
Neither Cowell, "The X Factor" producers or Spears' representatives have confirmed the reports.
