Apparently that’s the buzz across the pond, and it’s sparked a bidding war between Simon and several other record labels. Though Rob is best known for playing Edward Cullen, he’s a guitar and piano player, and has a decent singing voice as well.
The only person slowing down the process is Rob himself. A source said: "Robert is reluctant to be turned into a pop star - and takes his music very seriously. He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with X Factor and pop."
Simon could definitely help to further Rob’s music career. But since he’s already a household name, perhaps Rob is smart to keep his music more on the down low. He would be able to then make the kind of music he likes, while maintaining his acting career.
