Simon Cowell Weighs In On TRL Artists

The ‘American Idol’ judges stopped by to critique the artists on MTV”s Total Request Live on Monday.

Simon started it off by making a nasty remark about Shakira’s ‘Objection (Tango)’ saying, “Right, that sounds like Ricky Martin with a high voice. Out of 10 we’ll give the song 2.”

Later, Simon was asked who doesn’t really cut it on the TRL countdown. “Vanessa Carlton for being totally miserable,” he said. “Cheer up! You know, it’s a lovely day, sunny, you live in America, be happy!”

As for Britney Spears and her ‘Boys’ remix, Simon blasted, “Okay. That was, uhm, Britney Spears with an absolutely appalling song. Britney, go back to the school uniform. Go back to Max Martin and write some decent songs ’cause that song is terrible. Terrible!”

It wasn’t all negative remarks from Cowell though as he commented about Avril Lavigne, “I really like her. You know what she’s real! Really makes a change.”

Vanessa Carlton’s Tour Bus Catches Fire

August 11, 2002 – Vanessa checked in on her official forum Saturday from the latest stop on her tour with the Goo Goo Dolls. “Everything is amazing. The Goos are such good guys. I just did the Buffalo show. It was pretty rockin’. I’ve been gettin onstage with Johnny and the boys at the end of the night being the badass rockstar that I am. Heehee. Fyi, the bus caught on fire two days ago. Everything kinda smells like ass. I’m also convinced that the reason I’ve been sleeping 14hrs. every night is because I’ve been inhaling engine fumes through my ac vent. Great. Aside from all the drama, the shows are going really smooth. My only qualm is with the lack of tofutti cream cheese. Dude, it’s the ultimate non-dairy product.”
