Do we detect a hint of jealousy there, girl? Just because there is a new generation of performers being reared on reality television that threaten the longevity of your career, doesn't mean you need to get all bitter about it!
Charlotte Church recently took aim at Simon Cowell's talent search show The X Factor in Britain's Esquire magazine, claiming that the show is "killing music" for audiences. She added:
"That show doesn't have an interest in true craftsmanship or skill - it's all about your a**, and hopefully you can keep half a tune. It's dreadful news for everyone else because there's no room on radio or TV for anything else."
Aw, c'mon! That's not completely true! You're just getting all upset because no one asked you to be a judge.
No, we're not kidding. As her interview with the mag continues, Charlotte adamantly insists that would have made a "better judge" than anyone on the panel, Simon and Cheryl Cole included. She suggests the only reason she hasn't been asked to be a judge on the show is because Simon "wouldn't be able to control me, so he'd never have me on."
Um, yeah. That's the reason.
Hate to be the one to tell you this, hun, but the show isn't going anywhere and while we know you're not the only one who feels this way, you're not in the majority. The rest of us are totally down with Simon's hit factory, so maybe it's best if you just step aside and let the magic unfold.
