Shade, thy name is Reid!!!
The head honcho over at Epic Records, one L.A. Reid, is now speaking out about his time on The X Factor, and you have to see the quotes to believe what he's saying!
Speaking in Cannes, France at a Pepsi-sponsored breakfast talk, Reid spoke very honestly about his time on the show and dealing with the pitfalls of competition and reality TV:
"It's the worst thing I've ever done. The first season, yes, I had a great time. It was a little bit of a vacation. I'd been making music, working at running labels for a long time, and it was a little bit of, 'Let me just have some fun.' But the second season I was fully engaged trying run a label, and it wasn't fun anymore."
Ok, so far, not too bad — everybody wants a break from the daily grind, right?
