Miley Cyrus said 'no' to being X Factor 'dream crusher'
Oct 15, 2012, 8:01 GMT
Miley Cyrus turned down a judging role on 'The X Factor' USA because she didn't want to be a 'dream crusher'.
The 19-year-old singer was approached by Simon Cowell's team about joining the talent show as a panellist, but she rejected the role because she doesn't believe she would have been able to criticise the contestants' singing even if they sounded like 'nails on a chalkboard'.
She said: 'I just don't know if I want to be some dream crusher.
'Would you really want to sit there as someone is belting their heart out - even if it is like hearing nails on a chalkboard - and then say to them, 'You suck?' '
Miley admits she was 'scared' of being too critical to a young wannabe which could land her with a reputation for being 'harsh'.
She is quoted as saying: 'I have no filter, so I would be scared I would say something and they would go home and say, 'Miley Cyrus ruined my dreams'. It seems harsh.'
After 'The Climb' hitmaker - who was also linked to replacing Steve Jones as the host of the series - turned down an 'X Factor' judging position, Simon appointed Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to replace departing judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, who is now a panellist on the UK version of the show.
