Simon Cowell allegedly called Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Katy Perry boring. Simon is denying he ever said that, and he is now doing some damage control.
“If you only ever heard Lady Gaga, she’s the most boring singer in the world,” he reportedly told The Mirror. “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.”
Now his publicist is trying to clean up the mess.
“This was completely misreported. It’s the complete opposite, in fact,” Cowell’s rep told RadarOnline.com. “Simon is a massive fan of both [Gaga and Beyoncé] 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.”
Cowell himself said, “It’s like they’ve all been bred to take over the world and dominate everything in entertainment. They are unbelievable, these girls.”
Simon has a tendency to open up his mouth when he shouldn’t. We believe he called them boring.
