We all know Robert Pattinson is a musician -- he had two songs on the Twilight soundtrack -- but is the 23-year-old actor ready to launch a full on music career? According to the Sun, Rob has been approached by American Idol judge Simon Cowell, who is looking to sign the vampy star to a recording contract.
Since neither Rob nor Simon has confirmed this, it's all gossip right now, but we think it's just a matter of time before Rob releases a solo CD. RPatz has not only contributed to the Twilight soundtrack, but he's also shown off his musical skills in the indie flick How To Be. Furthermore, Rob told the L.A. Times last year that music is his "backup plan, if acting fails."
Of course, Rob's acting career isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but he's got a built-in fanbase with all his Twilight fans and the talent to back his musical endeavors up. So really, Rob, why wouldn't you record an album?
