"Sh-- happens, man. This is the business. It's not going to be all cute and pretty and tied up in a little bow," warned Christina Aguilera at one point during her keynote Q&A for the music conference jointly sponsored by Billboard Magazine and the Hollywood Reporter yesterday (Oct. 25).
It was a statement that set the tone for many of her remarks during a chat in which she, as THR put it, "dropped some f-bombs, spoke plainly about her career, and even belted out a bit of a classic tune."
Simon Cowell has been making the promo rounds, flanked by his 'X Factor' girls, on an assortment of TV programs. Last night (Sept. 17), when accompanied by newbie judge Demi Lovato on the 'Conan' show, he got more than he bargained for and was subjected to more abuse from his sidekick. She called him an "a--hole" on national late night TV. Go get 'em, Deemz!
Britney Spears looked HAWT in a form-fitting red dress and her hair fixed in a sexy, voluminous, librarian-style bun as she and Simon Cowell hit the promo circuit and went on 'Ellen' to talk up the season premiere of 'X Factor,' which is tomorrow, Sept. 12. She also danced Gangnam style, but that's a whole other deal!
We are BEYOND excited that the season premiere of 'X Factor' is just days away! Of course, what we're most excited about is the fact that we get to see our queen, a miss Britney Spears, on our TV screens multiple times a week!! And the new behind the scenes footage of 'X Factor' that was released makes us love Brit (and Demi Lovato) so much more.
Ding ding. 'The Voice' vs. 'X Factor' battle has officially begun, a week before the season premieres and the ratings books. 'The Voice' is strategically attempting to win Round 1 by adding an extra episode of Season 3 during the premiere week on Wednesday, Sept. 12, which is the same day that Season 2 of 'X Factor' premieres. That move has got Simon Cowell fighting mad.
Simon Cowell can add "hero" to his long, long list of achievements: The former 'American Idol' and current 'X Factor' judge came to the rescue of nine people who were trapped on a sinking boat in France!
