How Many Records Has Simon Cowell Sold?
Simon Cowell may be known for his harsh comments while judging American Idol, but he left the show long before Scotty McCreery took the show’s top title in May. That didn’t stop him from taking a little dig at the North Carolina native when talking to TMZ recently. Simon was asked to do an American accent, and in response he did his worst Southern drawl, saying, “Y’all gonna love this…I love you this big.” Good thing he didn’t try that with this year’s runner-up, Lauren Alaina, since she isn’t afraid of the X Factor judge. CMT Daily Roundup reports that Miss Alaina said, “Daddy’s a lot like him, but my daddy can say it nicer. He’s Southern. But, [laughs] I think I could have handled him. I could have handled, Simon. Bring it Simon.” Both Scotty and Lauren are anticipating the release of their debut albums. Scotty’s Clear as Day comes out October 4th, while Lauren’s Wildflower hits stories the 11th.
