Justin Bieber is in big trouble with Simon Cowell! After throwing shade at both ‘X Factor’ and One Direction in a new interview, Justin has officially ended up on Simon’s bad side. Get the EXCLUSIVE details on Simon’s reaction to JB’s diss here!
Justin Bieber, 21, isn’t typically afraid to speak his mind, but he better be careful when it involves Simon Cowell! The 56-year-old mastermind behind X Factor and its phenom group One Direction felt the burn when Justin dissed both of Simon’s creations — but he’s sending the burn right back! According to an insider, Simon didn’t take Justin’s comments lightly!
“Simon thinks Justin is desperate and a whiny fool for taking shots at the boys of 1D and ‘X Factor,'” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Simon has had Justin on his shows and given him a platform for his music and now he is taking shots? Very bad form and Simon is not very happy with Justin. It was uncalled for.”
In case you missed Justin’s interview with The Bert Show, he made a comment that seemed to be completely directed at 1D. “I think people understand and know I was found on YouTube for my talent and not put together on X-Factor or something like that,” he quipped. JB immediately made sure to declare that it wasn’t a shot at the 1D guys, but Simon definitely took it as so. Although Simon’s rep denies these claims, we wouldn’t blame him for being upset with Justin over the comment. Frankly, Simon is not only the man behind One Direction, but he also is the creator of X Factor — so Justin’s diss was a double whammy!
Even if Justin really didn’t try to throw shade with his comment, we wouldn’t doubt if Simon is still feeling the pain of One Direction’s defeat when Justin took the No. 1 album spot away from them in November. Justin and 1D happened to drop new albums on the same day, and they were neck-in-neck with first-week sales until the very end. The Biebs had also shaded the guys prior to their album releases, so when he ended up on top, Simon probably wasn’t very happy. No wonder he’s so upset now!
When Justin first insulted One Direction, they responded with a diss of their own, but a playful one. But once Justin threw out some more shade, our source tells us the boys couldn’t help themselves from calling it complete “rubbish”! With both One Direction and Simon thinking lowly about Justin, he better watch what he says next time — even if he means no harm!
