Louis Walsh wants to manage Honey G.
The 64-year-old music manager - who looked after novelty act Jedward from the 2009 series of 'The X Factor' - thinks the wannabe rapper is bound to be successful and could "make a lot of money" by cashing in on her image and bringing out her own merchandise including hats and glasses, just like the ones she doesn't leave the house without wearing.
He told heat! magazine: "Well, I do like the crazy ones! She's so sellable.
"I can see Honey G dolls and Honey G glasses and Honey G caps. She's on the ['X Factor'] tour as well. She's already a star.
"She came into my dressing room all the time and she worked so hard. I think this will change her life forever, and she'll make a lot of money."
Honey G - whose real name is Anna Gilford - recently revealed she is signed to Simon Cowell's label Syco and is to release her debut single 'The Honey G Show' on December 23.
Sharing her excitement, she said: "I'm going to be releasing my first single on the 23rd December and I'm shooting the video this week so I'm so excited. I'm just so happy."
Honey - who was mentored by Sharon Osbourne - previously revealed she believes Syco is the best label for her because she's already built up a relationship with the company.
She explained: "I entered 'The X Factor' because I wanted a record deal. I'm not really interested in anything else apart from getting signed to get a record deal. Obviously, with Syco, I know the team really well. We get on really well so it would be lovely to be signed by them because the relationship is already formed."
