Scooter Braun Not Interested In American Idol Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.29.2013
He doesn't take projects out of vanity...
TMZ reports that Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber's manager, has turned down a judging role for American Idol.
A source said: "The only reason to do it at this point is vanity and he doesn't do things for vanity. Without the right to manage the acts, it makes no business sense for him and ultimately he's a business guy."
Jennifer Lopez and several other producers wanted him to come on board. One of the issues has been that he wants access to the careers of the contestants and Idol can't do that because of a deal with Simon Fuller.
Meanwhile, Braun thinks the producers should sign Dr. Luke instead.
