'Twilight's' budding rock star Robert Pattinson calls Simon Cowell pop

Robert-Pattinson-Twilight-Simon-Cowell-500.jpgWhile " Twilight" has made Robert Pattinson the object of affection for tweens throughout the cosmos, it seems he wants his musical career to go in a more edgy direction - and that means fellow Brit Simon Cowell may not cut it.

According to UK's The Sun, Pattinson, who plays guitar and piano, has received offers from several record companies looking to snag "Twilight" gold.

The most attractive offer, though, comes from soon-to-be-former " American Idol" judge and the guy behind the new American "X-Factor," Simon Cowell.
