The sacked New Zealand 'X Factor' judge previously hit out at a contestant for copying her husband
Singer Natalia Kills has made light of her recent sacking from ‘X Factor’ in New Zealand after she criticised a contestant for supposedly copying her husband. Now, she’s posted images to Instagram of her own “doppelgangers”.
Kills was involved in the recent “bullying” controversy which saw her lose her job as a judge on the New Zealand version of the show.
Both Kills and her husband, Willy Moon, were removed from by Mediaworks, the owners of X Factor broadcaster TV3 following a live show on Saturday (March 14) in which the pair harshly criticised contestant Joe Irvine following his performance. They labelled Irvine “disgusting” and “creepy” live on air.
Now, the British star has posted pictures of numerous people critics have claimed she herself looks like: Madonna, Cleopatra, 1920s actress Louise Brooks and cartoon character Dora the Explorer.
Last week, Kills and Moon offered an apology for the incident.
“A lot goes on behind the scenes of a reality TV show and you see isn’t always the whole story,” Kills wrote. “The show brought me on to bring my passion, dramatic expression and perspective. I was encouraged to be outspoken and things got out of hand.” Reaching out to Irvine, she added: “Joe. I hope you can forgive me and I wish you all the best! Be natural, unconventional and be you!”
Moon’s statement reads: “The show encourages judges to be forthright and highly opinionated. It went too far and I never intended to single out anyone.”
Neighbours star Natalie Bassingthwaighte and I Am Giant drummer Shelton Woolright will now fill in for the ousted judges on the New Zealand panel.
