Simon Cowell Rips Elton John

Simon Cowell Rips Elton John Over 'X Factor' Comments.

X marks the spot for Simon Cowell, and his target is Elton John.

John ripped into Cowell's "X Factor" singing talent show -- an absolute hit in Britain that Cowell is taking to America this summer -- back in October, saying that the fact that the singers don't write their own songs, and rocket to instant fame, is a negative for their careers and for music.

"I'm not a fan of talent shows," John said in an interview with Britian's Radio Times. "I probably wouldn't have lasted if I'd gone on one. It's become boring . . . brain crippling. I like Simon Cowell but what he does is TV entertainment."

"There have been some good acts but the only way to sustain a career is to pay your dues in small clubs," he continued. "TV vaults you to superstardom and then you have to back it up, which is hard. Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke [X Factor winners] are at the mercy of the next song they can get."

Well, Cowell finally had an answer for the knighted music legend.
