Christina Aguilera has called Simon Cowell a 'dick'.

The singer, who is also a judge on the US version of television talent show The Voice was speaking about rival show American Idol, on which Cowell was formerly a judge, when she made the comment. She said:

I've not actually seen a full episode of any of the other music shows. I saw the commercials early on of American Idol of Simon being a dick. I was like, 'Man, that's not what it's about!' I didn't want to treat people like that. I wanted to do The Voice to show that we can be positive. We don't have to knock people down.


Cowell is currently a judge on The X Factor in the United States. The judges on the 2013 season of American Idol will be Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.

Aguilera made the comments at a keynote Q&A session yesterday (October 25), at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Conference in Los Angeles.

She also said that she doesn't read tabloid press or blogs, saying: "Now everyone is a critic. I don't read blogs. It's just God-knows-who in Buttfuck wherever writing hate shit. You can't take it seriously. I'm sure you've all been hated on at some point by buttfuck people."

During the interview, Aguilera added that it was "hard" to be a powerful woman in the entertainment industry. "I'm known for not always being warm and fuzzy, because you'll just get bulldozed over," she said.
