Simon vs. Elton

By Brooke Benjamin
Simon Cowell is no stranger to criticism. The most recent episode of disapproval comes from music legend Sir Elton John. The singer made claims last month that televised talent competitions are “killing talent” by dominating the music charts. Simon retaliated to these claims on Piers Morgan’s show stating,“’I tell you what, you just made a million dollars off your last private gig. Go and give it to a bunch of young musicians you care about, put them in the studio. Go and nurture them. Go and spend some time looking after them. Then I’ll buy your argument.” The full interview will air on Monday on CNN.
