Damon Albarn slags off Simon Cowell – video

Gorillaz and Blur man jokes about Cowell's trousers

Damon Albarn has confirmed his appearance at the forthcoming Africa Exprez gig in Liverpool. It was long rumoured that the Gorillaz man would be present for the show at Liverpool’s Olympia on March 6, after he took the lead in putting together the group's Glastonbury Festival takeover last year.
Damon Albarn has laid into Simon Cowell, saying he thinks he deserves to hear better music than the acts the X Factor man is associated with.

In a video interview with MTV News which you can watch by scrolling down now, the Gorillaz and Blur man said of Cowell: "I really don't want to share his imagination."

Albarn added: "He's endlessly looking at a rubber duck just floating from one side [of a pool] to the other, pulling his trousers up a little bit more, someone bringing him a drink, and then it goes back again. That's his kind of imagination, and I feel I deserve a little bit more than that. So all the music that comes out of that entire culture, that's what I think of it."
