The Really Real Simon-(not really new news)

"Jennifer Hudson said American Idol was a 'stepping stone' for her. Stepping stone? It was her big opportunity to become noticed and she got noticed and she got Dreamgirls," Cowell said, noting that other past contestants "deliberately turn against the show that made them successful. The reason (people) come on the show is because all the doors had been slammed in their face."


Contestants Alaina Alexander, Leslie Hunt, Nicholas Pedro and AJ Tabaldo were voted off and tears were shed. Cowell questioned the sentiment. "Oh, please," he drolled. "My theory is why would you cry if one of your competitors is kicked off? Be delighted. They know the cameras are on. Trust me."

Above are direct quotes from the King of Mean. Who put the turd in his lunch bucket? Does he always have to be so negative? Getting him to be nice would be like nailing Jell-O to a tree. I know that you shouldn't coddle the contestants but I think he feels he must say negative things to bounce off the positive that Paula gushes at times. Very rarely has Simon said anything nice since I have been watching. I have temped in Hell and some of those bosses were nicer than Simon.
Just had to get that out of my system.

Jennifer Hudson winning an Oscar is actually a big "Fuck You" to a system that chose Taylor Hicks over her.

True, although I do have to agree with his comments on the contestants who don't thank AI during their acceptance speeches for Oscars & Grammys. I mean, c'mon. Kelly Clarkson is a great singer, but helloooo? There are a million great singers out there who never had the good fortune to be able to appear on national TV months in a row to get themselves a name. The fact is, without AI, neither of those girls would be anywhere. They should show a little gratitude, even if they have certain other beefs with the AI producers. I would gladly trade places with either of them - they can have my crappy job and work every day of their lives, or .....
