Simon Cowell asks Eminem to be a guest judge on 'The X Factor' - Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Simon Cowell has responded to Eminem's recent comments that he would make a good X Factor judge by inviting the rapper to appear on the show. Cowell revealed he is already close to Eminem – who he calls Em. "It would be great to have him on as a guest judge," he said. "Em – I call him that because we are on first name terms – the job is yours." Eminem previously admitted that he found it frustrating that hip-hop rarely features in the reality show (Daily Star).

From the papers:

Kylie Minogue is working on new material with Taio Cruz (Daily Star).

Rihanna braved the rain to go out in Knightsbridge, London on Saturday night (November 28) (various).

Florence And The Machine are set to record their second album in the US to "put some otherworldly sounds in it" (Daily Star).

Idlewild's Gareth Russell had to dash from the band's Homecoming Live gig in Glasgow to be with his wife, who had gone into labour (Daily Record).

Calvin Harris has been giving Tinchy Stryder advice on how to perform in front of big crowds (Daily Star).
