Demi Lovato Talks 'X Factor' Feud with Simon Cowell
“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with “The X Factor” judge and mentor Demi Lovato after the show's double elimination Thursday, and the singer opened up about her war of words with Simon Cowell.
After Cowell’s boy band Emblem3 performed Wednesday, Lovato expressed some strong feelings. She commented, “I just don't understand what Simon is doing with you guys. Every week I know you are going to be standing next to each other singing a song, but people are going to like you because you are good looking. I don't think this is genuine at all.”
Simon shot back, "Demi, you criticizing me for doing a bad job is quite ironic." He continued by pointing out to her that he has sold over 300 million records.
Backstage with Bargh, Demi did not back down. “He gets on my nerves. I would talk to anybody that way if they were talking to me that way. I don’t care who you are. I don’t care how many records you sold. I’m going to tell you what I think if you are going to bite my head off.”
Tune in to “The X Factor” next Wednesday to see if more sparks fly!
