Ellen DeGeneres ‘Simon’s A Big Meanie’
US TV’s power lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres, has vowed that in her new role as American Idol judge she will tell Simon Cowell off should he get to big for his boots. Ellen took over the role as judge from Paula Abdul amidst rumours that Paula had some…prescription problems…
Ellen told Entertainment Weekly that ,”Simon really is mean to people sometimes – if he’s rude, I’m going to let him know he’s rude.” You go girl! Ellen will judge on the show as well as hosting her own daytime TV show but Brit audiences may still remember her from a sitcom Ellen.
She also told the Street Journal that, “We both like each other and accept one another. At the same time I think he’s mean and I think he says things in an insensitive way.”
“I don’t think that’s the way to get a point across. I’ve called him on it to his face. I’ll do the same thing to him [on the show].”
We know that Simon was always more than happy to stand up to people who questioned his judgement (Amanda Holden) but how will he handle being told off by one of America’s most beloved TV personalities?
