Simon Cowell, of The X Factor on Fox has no problem speaking his mind, but did he recently slam Lady Gaga and Beyonce? A recent news article accused the music mogul of such, but The X Factor judge denied the accusations. Read on for all the details.
The X Factor’s head honcho, Simon Cowell, never has an issue speaking his mind, so it is no wonder people believed a recent news article saying that Simon Cowell slammed both Lady Gaga and Beyonce. The Mirror, a UK news site, recently published an article where they claimed that Simon Cowell said: “If you only ever heard Lady GaGa, she’s the most boring singer in the world,” adding “You’ve got to see her – you need TV. Same with Beyoncé. Or Katy Perry. We’re all about image. You have to have that X Factor.”
But, according to Radar Online, Simon Cowell has set the record straight with them, and claims he never slammed either singer! A rep for Simon Cowell told the gossip site: “This was completely misreported. It’s the complete opposite in fact,” adding that “Simon is a massive fan of both and he always refers to them as amongst the artists he most admires. He thinks they are two of the most interesting, talented and relevant artists today.”
While Simon’s rep set the record straight, Simon Cowell also had some comments of his own as he told Radar Online that Beyonce is “the biggest star we’ve seen in 20 years; we’re seeing sort of the rise of the super female pop star,” while Lady Gaga he referred to as “having The X Factor” and “a total, utter star.” What do you believe? We know that Simon Cowell can be harsh sometimes, but something tells us that he did not bash either of these two ladies.
