Neil Tennant Slams Simon Cowell's Reality Shows
February 10, 2009
Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant has took a swipe at Simon Cowell saying the spectrum of music on his reality shows like The X Factor and American Idol is too narrow.
The 54-year-old was speaking ahead of his outstanding achievement honour at Brit Awards on February 18 and took the opportunity to take a swipe at Cowell's tastes.
"If it's not power ballads then it was a narrower version of disco. I remember on Pop Idol, Pete Waterman told someone, very sympathetically, 'The thing is, you're more of a Depeche Mode kind of artist.' In other words, 'What are you doing here, pet?'
He did however, confirm there will be “two guests” for their performance.
