Media mogul Simon Cowell has denied referring to Beyonce and Lady Gaga as “boring singers” who solely rely on image. Cowell explained: “Beyonce is the biggest star we’ve seen in 20 years; we’re seeing sort of the rise of the super female pop star. It’s like a different breed. Beyonce has that. When it comes to Gaga, she is the most relevant pop artist in the world at the moment. I’ve met her. She is very smart. I like her. She is a total, utter star. You have to be open and embrace this level of expression. You hope to God that you can find someone like her”.
I’m sorry but I don’t buy it. I DO believe he said what he did and is only backtracking because he’s feeling the heat of such an unwise, very unpopular claim. Back in 2006, the acid-tongued judge described Beyonce as “not sexy” and “not a great singer”, which resulted in Matthew Knowles having several disapproving words in retaliation. Of course Cowell had to eat crow pie and place his lips firmly on that same butt when he wanted the singer to appear on the UK’s X Factor with Alexandra Burke.
