The 'X Factor (US)' judge includes Katy Perry in his 'boring' list and calls them the most boring singers in the world.
Simon Cowell might spark controversy with his latest comment. In the wake of the disappointing rating for his new reality show "The X Factor (US)", the media mogul threw a jab at Lady GaGa and her "Telephone" collaborator Beyonce Knowles.
"If you only ever heard Lady GaGa, she's the most boring singer in the world," the former judge of "American Idol" told the Mirror. He added, "You've got to see her - you need TV. Same with Beyonce. Or Katy Perry. We're all about image. You have to have that X Factor."
Despite Cowell's "boring" claim, GaGa and Perry proved to be one of the hottest music acts. Already bagging a bunch of coveted awards, the two singers recently nabbed two nominations at MTV's 2nd O Music Awards. The former is vying for Fan Army FTW and Must Follow Artist on Twitter, while the latter is up for Best Lyric Video and Best Artist With a Cameraphone.
