Simon Lays Into Elton Over X Factor Digs!

simon-cowell-vs-elton-john

Uh-oh! Shiz's getting real!

Elton John is no stranger to speaking his mind, and has repeatedly sounded off about his distaste for reality shows like The X Factor and its creator, Simon Cowell, but now, it looks as though the icon is getting a taste of his own medicine!

Cowell has responded to his criticism, and it ain't pretty! He says:

"Well, look. This is somebody who charges what — a million dollars a private gig? Two million dollars, you know? I don't know whether he's concerned about himself…but…they always bleat on that we're not giving other people a chance. And I always want to say to them, 'I tell you what, you just made a million dollars off — off your last private gig. Go and give it to a bunch of young musicians you care about, put them in the studio. Go and nurture them. Go and spend some time looking after them.' Then I'll buy your argument. They — they're only worried about themselves."

Damn! We hate to admit it, but…touchĂ©!

Let's hope that this doesn't cause another retaliation for Elton! This disagreement doesn't need to get any uglier!

What do U think?? Team Simon or Team Elton??
