L.A. Reid — You were so mean on the Oct. 10 episode of ‘X Factor’ — you completely degraded the group you were given to mentor, the ‘Over 25s.’ Get over yourself and try to help these people succeed!
It all started when L.A. was given the “Over 25s” to mentor. He angrily slammed down the phone and walked away from the show’s producers!
Meanwhile, in an interview before he was told about his group, he said, if he was given the Over 25s, “I’d have to say I have no interest.” Real nice, L.A!
His group is comprised of Jason Brock, Daryl Back, David Correy, Tara Simon, Tate Stevens and Vino Alan. I’m sorry, but there is definitely talent here — they wouldn’t be picked from thousands and thousands of auditions to make the top 24 if they had nothing special about them.
“I can’t really say that there’s anybody who stands out in the category,” he said to the camera.
He said he was “a little bit disappointed” to have them as a group! Incredibly rude and demoralizing!
He didn’t make it better when he basically threw up his hands and said, oh well, now I have to figure out how to get one of you guys to win!
His arrogance really shined through when he added that he would “take credit” if one of his “over 25s” did actually win the competition.
L.A. — you need to be supportive and encouraging of your talent. You are supposed to mentor and guide them, not tear them down.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?
