I guess Simon Cowell has won. Over the years he’s managed to turn a bunch of emerging and talented amateurs into mega stars. He owns a super yacht, a Bentley and several properties which most people think only exist in Town and Country magazine. If life were a game of Monopoly then Simon Cowell would own Mayfair, Park Lane and all the Utilities. And yes, work that smirk.
As for his beloved X Factor show, well… it hasn’t turned out to be the ratings extravaganza that Simon Cowell had hoped for.
No, but it’s still great for the judges who get tons of exposure and lots of money for doing practically nothing.
Nothing is pretty much what Rita Ora does for a living except the X Factor have been paying her for it. That’s why it’s really hard to believe that she has pulled out of the upcoming show just before filming begins on the new series.
Really it’s true. According to sources she was offered a new judging contract but she turned it down. Here’s what they had to say.
“Losing Rita is a huge blow – she’s one of the biggest stars in the country and Simon wanted her to return.
“She was very keen to do the show but at the end of the day it didn’t work out with her other commitments around the world in music and acting.
“It means we’re going to have to go through the biggest shake-up in the history of X Factor, but maybe it will turn out for the best.”

Wait what? “Biggest stars in the country” Rita Ora? Is that it? You say that about someone who just slapped you in the face? Simon could’ve at least saved the words “you’re fired” and let Rita hear them for herself.
But seriously? If I were the X Factor PR then I’d say far worse things than that!
Anyway. Rita leaving now means Simon Cowell is the only judge left from last year’s line up.
Apparently, Simon hasn’t chosen any replacement yet, but the only way I’ll watch that wailing show is if the new judge is Jack Dee.
And finally allow me to introduce Mr Lee Stuart, a British artist who’s work we have set to music. You can see more of his artistic creations at the ArtPopper Website
