Last month, news surfaced about L.A. Reid leaving Def Jam. He left his role with the label for a job as a host on Simon Cowell's new series, "The X Factor." In many ways, the job is much better than the job at Def Jam. Reid had been with Def Jam for nearly ten years and helped establish Ne-Yo and Rihanna, among others.

L.A. Reid has finally broken his silence about leaving Def Jam for the new Simon Cowell project. The executive said he will miss his old job, while he will love his new one. Reid said it was actually a tough decision to leave Def Jam. He had been with the label for so long and he had a hard time leaving for a new venture.

While L.A. Reid will miss Def Jam, he is very excited about judging the talent on "The X Factor." Walking out the door of Def Jam was indeed tough on him. But, "The X Factor" was an offer Reid could not refuse. Now, he is waiting in anticipation for filming to begin. Throughout his career, L.A. Reid has been around talented artists, so he is truly one to judge.

Simon Cowell went out and found the best when he decided to launch "The X Factor."
