Speaking yesterday at the premiere of the second series of the show, the Brit was asked to comment on how the singer faired as the new judge, he answered: ‘She’s the new Queen of Mean.’
But he didn’t stop there. As he stood outside of the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in LA, Simon was quick to reveal his crown as Mr Nasty was slipping.
After witnessing Britney’s constant put downs he added: ‘And everybody thinks I’m the mean one?’
And when the show’s judges weren’t bad mouthing each other they decided to get their hands dirty.
Britney and Simon’s co-judges, Demi Lovato and L.A Reid joined them as they cast their signatures and handprints in cement.
For the occasion the blonde star opted for a long sleeved electric blue dress by Stella McCartney complete with an ornate floral print.
What do you think about Simon Cowell’s take on Britney Spears? Is it refreshing to see the star in a new light? Are you looking forward to watching her as an X Factor judge? Have your say in the comments box below.
