Well if it was a rumor before I wouldÂ thinkÂ its definite now…L.A. Reid seems to be heading to the X Factor! Reid released a statement to his staff today (according to Just Jared).
His letter sent to his staff started off with a quote from Colin Powell: â€œGreat leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut throughÂ argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.â€
And hereâ€™s the rest of L.A.â€™s letter as obtained by JustJared.com:
â€œTo my Island Def Jam family: After much consideration, I have decided to leave my position as Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
â€œI have always thrived on growth and the next great challenge, and I look forward with much enthusiasm to what the future holds.
â€œI am extremely proud of our beautiful roster and all we have accomplished in my seven years with IDJ. We continue to have incredible success together with todayâ€™s most phenomenal superstars – Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey (she reportedly will follow L.A.), Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross, The Killers, The-Dream, Chrisette Michele, Jeezy and Ludacris to name a few.
â€œI want to thank all of you for your amazing contributions.
â€œWith Warm Regards –
