London: Rihanna has revealed that she had declined the offer to be a judge on the American ‘X Factor’ because of her gruelling tour schedule.

Simon Cowell had offered the 23-year-old singer the role.

"It’s something I’d have loved to do but our schedule doesn’t allow it,” the Sun quoted the Barbados-born star as saying.

“We’re on tour for the rest of the year. You have to be around for months which would’ve been impossible for me," she said.
