Simon Cowell Does Some Backtracking Due To Comments About Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyonce

Posted by monique On October - 3 - 2011 0 Comment

Simon Cowell has already been known for his brash, unfiltered way of speaking about things. Sometimes (or, most times, I guess), he lacks tact–he told Lionel Ritchie he didn’t like his music when the singer was a guest judge on a season of “American Idol” and he just told a contestant on “The X Factor” that she had a routine that he felt was like an early version of Nicole Scherzinger–who’s also a judge on the show. But this time around, his comments forced he and his team to do some damage control.

According to AOL Music, Cowell allegedly told The Mirror that Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Beyonce lack the “X Factor” that he’s looking for on the show. “If you only ever heard Lady Gaga, she’s the most boring singer in the world,” he allegedly said. “You’ve got to see her–you need TV. Same with Beyonce. Or Katy Perry. We’re all about image. You have to have that X Factor.”

A representative for Cowell said to Radar Online that Cowell’s words were misconstrued. “This was completely misreported,” said the rep. “It’s the complete opposite, in fact. Simon is a massive fan of both [Gaga and Beyonce] and he always refers to them as amongst the artists he most admires. He thinks they are two fo the most interesting, talented and relevant artists today.”

Cowell also stated that he thinks Gaga, Perry and Beyonce were “bred to take over the world and dominate everything in entertainment. They are unbelievable, these girls.” He went on to talk about the star power and ambition Beyonce and Gaga have. You can read the full report here.
