According to an interview, he was quoted saying that he thinks both Beyonce and Lady Gaga are boring:
“If you only ever heard Lady Gaga, she’s the most boring singer in the world. 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.”
However, his reps are denying the claims.
“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 Beyonce] 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.”
In a separate interview, the famous critic gushed about both artists’ massive success, saying 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.”
