Simon Cowell Doesn’t Watch IDOL

Published

As the promos for Simon Cowell’s show “The X Factor” are unveiled, Cowell has opened up to Entertainment Weekly about just how much he does (and doesn’t) watch American Idol… the answer? Not a whole lot!

Says Cowell, according to EW:

“I haven’t seen a full episode,” the former Idol judge told reporters on a conference call for his upcoming music competition series, The X Factor. “I’ve seen three minutes of a recap. From what I’ve seen and from what I’ve heard, it all seems to be going well. What I was more concerned about [was] the ratings falling off a cliff, and that the whole genre might be over. But people are still excited about these shows, whether Dancing With the Stars, which has gotten better over the years, America’s Got Talent… I think they’ve done a good job.”

As he finalizes the judging panel on “Factor,” he danced around whether Idol alum Paula Abdul might be a viable option.

“I’m a massive fan of Paula,” he said. “We’ve been in regular contact. I’m not going to say today who we are going to confirm or not, because the truth is we haven’t made up our minds up yet…. It comes down to who I think is interesting, and the commitment and the expertise each person offers.”

On last night’s audition episode, the four main judges got the surprise of the season when former judge Steven Tyler randomly showed up at the Oklahoma City tryouts to say hi.

The only awkward part?  He came into the room in a dress, blond wig, and red lipstick…

UPDATE: Steven Tyler “Apologizes” To Nicki Minaj…If You Could Call It An Apology

It’s apparent that Steven Tyler doesn’t think he said anything wrong about Nicki Minaj…

It’s apparent that Steven Tyler doesn’t think he said anything wrong about Nicki Minaj…

On Monday, we reported how Nicki flipped out on the former “Idol” judge after he apparently said a “racist” comment concerning her judging abilities.  In a recent interview with MTV, Tyler said that the new judges wouldn’t be able to spot talent to nurture, saying,

 “These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best [out of them]. … If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.” 

Nicki immediately took to Twitter over the comment, saying that the racism was obvious:

“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet…I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f— yourself and worry about yourself babe.” 

Yesterday, the Aerosmith legend finally fired back at his new replacement, and while he apologized, he said he has absolutely no idea where the accusations came from: 

“I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki … but I am the farthest from [being a racist]…I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don’t know where she got that out of me saying I’m not sure how she would’ve judged Bob Dylan.”

Don’t worry, Steven…I  were wondering the same thing…

FOX and “American Idol” still have no comment on the matter.
