Back in October, X Factor UK judge Sharon Osbourne exited her job with a delicate Facebook post explaining that she thought the show was in good hands and they’d be fine without her. It was interesting timing seeing as shortly before her announcement, she referred to the show as “fucking karaoke” and the contestants as “little shits” in a Howard Stern interview. Well, Sharon’s now saying she didn’t quit – she was fired. She’s also claiming that X Factor UK producer and hirsute heartthrob Simon Cowell axed her because she’s too old to be judging fucking karaoke sung by little shits.
The world may be a mean, nasty place going to shit (and that’s just Twitter), but the heavens opened a glimmer last night…and it surprisingly had something to do with Simon Cowell. When former Hot Slut of the Week Susan Boyle first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, her voice of an angel melted even the most cynical, breathing lumps of coal hearts most of us around here are known to have. Thanks to her genuinely innocent ways to Pebbles the cat, she became a star. Susan has had a tough road to fame with pain-in-the-ass celebrities and singers not necessarily being the nicest about her upstaging them on their own music, but she may not be as delicate a flower as we once thought. She’s returning to compete and was on the stage for America’s Got Talent: The Champions last night.
Either the Time’s Up movement went on a deep dive for receipts or there are people like me whose idea of a good Saturday night is a good bottle of whiskey and commentating on Cheryl’s old X Factor outfits that just happened to stumble on some ick-tastic video. An old video from the after show of X Factor U.K. has resurfaced, and it shows one of the show’s original judges, Louis Walsh, clearly cupping Mel B’s ass and giving it a pat. Continue reading
Music mogul and professional dream dasher Simon Cowell had a scary fall down a flight of stairs at his London house early this morning. Do all his eliminated acts from last week’s X Factor have an alibi? Continue reading
I know, Simon. Katy Perry has spoiled a lot of things for me, too (short hair, award show monologues , Orlando Bloom). Unrepentant bitch in a v-neck sweater Simon Cowell made himself a household name by being the cruel one on the original American Idol. ABC is bringing the show back despite it only having gone off the air last year. And Simon’s got opinions. (It took 35 years to get a sequel to Blade Runner, you desperate-for-advertising dollars hoes!) Continue reading
We all know that Mel B has been going through all of capital-I it lately. Her marriage finally ended and it was revealed that her husband, Stephen Belafonte, was a real piece of (allegedly violent) work. Then she was ordered to fork over a ton of cash to keep Stephen in the moocher lifestyle he had grown accustomed to. We also know that Mel B is close with her fellow America’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell. Simon decided to make a joke about Mel B’s marriage last night on America’s Got Talent. That’s not Mel B showering Simon with a cup full of kisses.
