Simon Cowell Talks About Britney

Mr Nasty, Simon Cowell finds being brutally honest comes easily to him. In fact he’s made it his day job. Simon critiqued Britney Spears’ performance at the MTV Video Music Awards for The Sun and he told it like he saw it. Britney made possibly the worst comeback in history on Sunday night, performing her new track Gimme More. She pranced around like a zombie in bra and pants in a performance which could have effectively ended her career as a pop singer. Simon, who has made his fortune from guiding the careers of pop singers, said Britney would have been shown the door if her performance had been an audition for his ITV1 show.

Speaking from his mansion in LA, Simon said: “If I had been looking after Britney I’d have taken one look at her in rehearsals and I wouldn’t have allowed her on stage. It would have been worth pulling her off the bill, no matter what the cost, to save any chance she had of resurrecting her career. She wasn’t ready for that show in every possible way. The song wasn’t right, the image wasn’t right and she just wasn’t rehearsed. If she had turned up and given that performance at the X Factor auditions then I wouldn’t have put her through to the next round. The problem she has now is that she could have killed her career. It’s difficult to come back from that performance, for a while at least."
