Simon Cowell, Negativity with Nipples

(image via bastardly)

Those intrepid Page Sixxies hip us to the latest from Simon Cowell, who once said that Porn stars are good to fuck because they undergo such rigorous STD testing (Exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment). He now undertakes to defend the batshit position that Bob Dylan, arguably the most influential and important poet and musician of the 20th Century is less interesting than Kelly Clarkson:

"IN a snub that will have Bob Dylan fans blowin' in the wind with rage, Simon Cowell has come out bashing the beloved folk legend as a dull singer who's not as talented as perky pop princess Kelly Clarkson. 'Do I prefer Kelly Clarkson's music to Bob Dylan's? Yes. I've never bought a Dylan record. A singing poet? It just bores me to tears,' Cowell tells February's Playboy. The acerbic 'American Idol' judge adds: 'I've got to tell you, if I had 10 Dylans in the final of 'American Idol,' we would not be getting 30 million viewers a week. I don't believe the Bob Dylans of this world would make 'American Idol' a better show.'"

Nor does the lowbrow "American Idol" -- naught else but simple shit -- make America a better country. And Simon, my good man, Stupidity spoken with an English accent is still stupidity.
