Just Say No, David. Please Say No.

The story in the music industry is that Simon Cowell is trying to convince David Bowie to beocme a judge on the UK version of The X Factor.  From The Daily Mail:

I think if I could have anyone on The X Factor it would be David Bowie. It’s no secret I’ve asked him, and he hasn’t said yes yet, but I’ll keep extending the invitation. Why Bowie? He’s a legend. He’s a great songwriter, he has massive influence on music today and he’s 100 per cent credible. I’m a fan. Not just of his music but of him, the man. He’s cool. Most of us aren’t. Bowie is.

Bowie won’t bite, of course.  He’s much smarter than that, right? Right?
