Rumor has it, Robert Pattinson has been approached by "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell to ink a major record deal. It is also reported that Simon is not the only person who is interested to sign the "Twilight" actor as there are other recording companies which pursue him.

A bidding war reportedly has taken place with the Edward Cullen depicter being reluctant to seal a deal with Simon. "He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with 'The X Factor' and pop," a source said as quoted by The Sun.

Singing is not something new for Robert Pattinson as he has contributed two songs in the first installment of "Twilight" movie series. Earlier in March 2009, he revealed his desire to release an indie album, saying he is not afraid if the record fails because he "got nothing to lose."

Besides been very good to look at he is talented. I enjoyed his song "Never Think." He is very talented. He needs to be careful about being overwhelmed with his fame. Take it one day at a time.

I would love to be able to buy some of Robert's music but he has a lot going on with the movies right now. He should wait until he is ready to do it on his terms and his timeframe and not necessarily with Simon Cowell.
