Actor wants to do his own thing

Robert Pattinson wants to ‘concentrate’ on his music – but he has no desire to be just another manufactured X Factor act.

Rob, whose new film Cosmopolis is out this month, is a talented musician and hit the studio to lay down some ‘guitar-based’ tracks last year. 

‘I am never going to be an artist that Simon Cowell can mould into a brand,’ says Rob, 26, reports the Daily Star.

‘I only play what I like, and I guess the issue might be that it wouldn’t sell records.’

Though Rob doesn’t fancy being an X Factor contestant, he wouldn’t mind being one of the judges.

I think it would be amazingly cool to be a judge on The X Factor,’ R-Pattz told us.

It would be one of the best things ever to get paid for handing out Simon Cowell-style insults for a day.

I wouldn’t want to be one of the nice guys.

‘I’d want to be like Simon – otherwise it’s no fun.

I don’t think he’s rude, I just think he’s painfully honest, which is what makes him so good.’
