Simon Cowell is a smart man, he’s authorized his company to leak everyone he’s met with for The X-Factor gig. That man certainly knows how to build hype….
He told The Huffington Post:
The media have got it because our company leaks any information — if we meet anybody, the whole world knows about it. But I don’t have a problem with that. It’s been an interesting process, and one of the things that you have to take in account is that on this show, you are mentoring contestants at the end, when you’re choosing their material, what they’re going to wear, which choreographer they’re going to work with, and that takes up an awful amount of time and energy, and you’ve got to have that commitment. So you’ve got to take that into account as well. But at the end of the day, you trust your gut feeling to put together a panel that’s going to work, and the most important thing is, people will decide, once they watch the show, whether we’ve made the right decision or the wrong decision.
But apparently he’s not behind ALL the rumors, because he’s not the one that leaked the news about Taylor Momsen… He told Celebuzz that he’s never heard of her! Ha! I was hoping it was just another nasty rumor, but you can never be too sure.
I have no doubt that The X-Factor will kick ass considering how much Simon and Fox have on the line. I’m getting excited…
