Which of his X Factor co-stars does he like the best — Britney Spears or Demi Lovato? That’s just one of the questions record producer and FOX reality star L.A. Reid answered when he dropped by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse. What platinum-selling artist did he drop from his label, and who was the hardest singer for him to work with? You won’t believe his answers! (And no, he didn’t even plead the fifth!)
L.A. Reid is either a really good sport or Andy Cohen‘s team needs to come up with some better questions. Maybe it’s a little of both.
Either way, we were oh so pleased that the uber successful producer-turned-reality star opted against pleading the fifth when he appeared on Watch What Happens Live alongside Beth Stern (yes…that Beth Stern — Howard Stern‘s wife).
We weren’t surprised to hear that between his female co-stars, Britney Spears is his fave. We were, however, disappointed in his reasoning.
While “’cause she’s hot” is a perfectly acceptable answer, we were kind of hoping for: “It’s Britney, b—h!”
BUT, Reid more than made up for the disappointment with his next two answers.
A few fun facts:
Once upon a time, L.A. actually dropped Lady Gaga from his record label! We’re sure he’s still kicking himself for that one.
And the artist that was the most difficult for him to work with?
Janet… Miss Jackson if you’re nasty.
Check out the clip of Reid below, and then see what dish Cohen dug up when playing the game with Beth Stern, and the America’s Got Talent question that had her pleading the fifth as soon as they started.
Which judge do you think Beth would’ve chosen? Sound off in the Comments section below.
