LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Howard Stern claims Britney Spears will be a “train wreck” if she becomes an X-Factor judge. Howard Stern insulted all the American Idol judges today, including Jennifer Lopez, and also claimed that Britney Spears would be even worse if she is added to the new second season of the X Factor.
Even though Simon Cowell produced both Stern’s show, America’s Got Talent, and X Factor, Stern had even more insults for Spears. He told news today that Spears’ motivation is getting “a perfume deal out of this [hosting job].”
Stern appeared across news outlets this morning promoting his own appearance as a new AGT judge. But he had nothing but negative statements about Idol. As to Jennifer Lopez, Stern told news “To sit there with JLo and Britney would be like a ventriloquist with two dummies; I’d have to prop them up.”
Stern has an issue with the rest of the American Idol judges as well. Stern told news “I watch ‘American Idol’ sometimes, and those three judges, they don’t have a word of criticism, and I think that’s selfish,” he claimed. “I think you owe it to the contestants to offer criticism.”
But his real insults came out against Spears. As to Britney, Howard told news today “She’ll stand there with a lollipop…(saying) ‘Can I get a perfume deal out of this?’ I don’t think you’ll be getting opinions from her. But I’ll tune in to see what kind of a train wreck she is.”
Stern told the Today Show today that, in his option, the Parents Television Council (PTC) has been a marketing dream for NBC (broadcast of AGT).”NBC should pay them millions of dollars. The more they keep issuing the statements it makes me seem more interesting and controversial.”
Stern also told news that he preferred Al Roker with a different physique than he is now. “I liked when Al Roker was fat, compared to how he is today!”
