Lily Allen has been bashing ‘The X Factor’ to her Twitter followers (@lilyroseallen) this weekend, shocked at how Simon Cowell has been able to profit from the singing competition. Lily writes and retweeted:
X factor- FAIL. Too set up/scripted in my humble opinion. #Must be the Music
RT stacks3stripe Watching x factor an hour behind. What a load of tired old formulaic dog sh**. Fu** this.
RT sbushell7 @lilyroseallen x factor is so scripted. went to the auditions, made us do a standing ovation for a ‘camera test’ yeah right….
@harper7 the fact I’ve never been on it, does not mean I’ve not been asked
@GingerJoanna it’s sh**. FACT ! Its everything that I detest about modern western culture. Cowell is the only one who really benefits.
@GingerJoanna and people like you EAT IT UP.
I don’t know how Simon Cowell has managed to get away with essentially copywriting the talent contest. It’s beyond me, really.
