Simon Cowell wants to give Robert Pattinson a record deal

The Twilight Saga: New Moon Screening!It has been reported that Simon Cowell wants to help Twilight star Robert Pattinson launch a music career.

Apparently Simon is keen to exploit the current interest in Robert, and this has caused a bidding war with other labels also keen to get their hands on Roberts talent… so to speak.

So why isn’t he biting Simon’s hand off? Apparently it has something to do with his connection to the X Factor.

‘Robert is reluctant to be turned into a pop star – and takes his music very seriously,’ a source told The Sun.

‘He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with X Factor and pop.’

Robert’s music has already appeared the Twilight soundtrack.
