Simon Cowell has said that he would like to sign Pippa Middleton to his media empire. The X Factor mogul admitted he was impressed with Middleton's new-found popularity and claimed that she had the potential to be a star, should she pursue such a path. Speaking to a US magazine, the media mogul said: "I haven't heard her sing, but if she walked in and said, 'I want to be a TV star', I would sign her on the spot."
52-year-old Cowell then added: "She has the X Factor. To overshadow your sister when she's the one getting married? That was impressive." Cowell's admission comes just months after Middleton - arguably the world's most famous bridesmaid - shot to fame at her sister Kate's wedding to Prince William in April. Dressed in Alexander McQueen, Pippa's figure gained an immediate fan base, with tweets about her now-famous derrière averaging 60 per minute, during the nuptials. via
