'The X Factor' Cast Covers The Hollywood Reporter

X Factor stars Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, L.A. Reid, and Steve Jones cover the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the stars had to share:

Simon, on what he’s looking for: “Buzz. In England, you genuinely get the feeling the whole country is talking about the show. I hope for that.”

Simon, on saying he’d hire ousted judge Cheryl Cole again: “[I]n a heartbeat – you’re not drowning puppies here. You’re offering someone who’s got millions of dollars more money and more work. And if people think that’s cruel, then they can do that to me on a daily basis. I’ll take it twice a day.”

L.A., on Randy Jackson comparisons: “Yeah, I had those conversations where I’m the black guy with the bald head. I’ve heard all those comments: ‘If they’re gonna use Randy, why didn’t they just get Randy?’ “That’s just how people think, but who cares? I love Randy. He’s been doing this successfully for 11 years. Comparing me to him is certainly not an insult.”
