No more Mr. Nice Judge! L.A. tells HollywoodLife.com he ‘hates’ being nice to ‘X Factor’ contestants.
We were shocked when L.A. Reid said he had “no interest” in his over-25 group, but it turns out that was only the start of his dark days on The X Factor. “I’m one of those guys that really despises nice people,” L.A. recently told reporters at an X Factor event in Los Angeles. “I don’t like seeing myself in a nice mode. I want to be mean. I like Simon Cowell because he’s always mean; I like Britney Spears because she’s mean; and this year, it feels like me and Demi Lovato are the nice people. I don’t like that.”
In fact, L.A. is hoping his new mean spirit spreads to all four judges!
“I think it would be great if we were all mean and fighting,” he added. “I think it would be fun. I have a feeling there’s another show that’s coming out where the judges hate each other. I think it’s going to be amazing.”
And we have a feeling L.A.’s mean streak will really come out during the upcoming live episodes.
“There’s an adrenalin that comes with doing the live shows,” he explained. “The live show is a shorter amount of time, and yes it’s nerve wracking, but it’s good adrenalin. It’s good nerves. When I walk out, I’m very nervous, which means I’m very healthy.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think L.A. is being too mean this season, or should all the judges follow suit?
