Simon Cowell Lays Into Britney Spears, Robbie Williams

by at . Comments

Music mogul Simon Cowell has blasted troubled stars Britney Spears and Robbie Williams for checking into rehab, insisting they have no idea of what hard life really is.

The outspoken American Idol judge recently visited an impoverished nation, and after witnessing the horrific conditions people are forced to live in, he believes Spears and Williams' problems pale in comparison.

Spears, who appears to have lost her mind, is currently in Promises in Malibu, Calif., following months of hard drinking and partying, while Williams is seeking treatment for an addiction to painkillers at The Meadows clinic in Arizona.

"This whole thing is a total indulgence. Britney and Robbie Williams need to get a grip," Cowell said. "I don't know what's going on in Britney's head, but my attitude is I couldn't care less. She should go back and live with her mum for six months."

"I went to a deprived part of the world recently... It really opened my eyes. You can feel sorry for yourself over the smallest things, but then you look at the world and you think, 'I've got nothing to complain about.'

"So when I hear about the Robbies and the Britneys checking into rehab, I think, 'I'll tell you what rehab is. Go to where I just went, where people are really suffering, and then you'll see just how good your life is.'

"I mean Britney Spears is not working in a coal mine is she? You are whisked to the studio in a very large limo, you are flown around in private jet, everyone will agree with you, and physically making an album is a doddle."

As usual, Simon hit the nail on the head. Much like when he came to defense of Antonella Barba. His comments about Britney may seem harsh, but hey, the truth hurts sometimes.

There's no doubt Britney could use six months out of the public eye, just spending time with Sean Preston and Jayden James. Don't hate Simon for saying what we're all thinking.


i think that´s not simon´s problem, i´m NOT agree with the way britney is ruin her life, but again, it´s NOT cowell´s problem.
and simon really needs to grow up too. i mean..come on!! he is 47 years old ,and he is still not marry and childless. if i were his girlfrind i would dump him a lot of time ago.


Spoiled. Spoiled. Spoiled. The problem with giving someone everything they want is that they do not develop strength of mind and spirit. We encounter challenges in life, hear the word "no," and are forced to develop survival skills, so that we become better and stronger. She has been catered to since she was a child and sadly may have the character development of one. Maybe the kids are better off with daddy, as scary as that may sound.


Simon's 100% right! I don't know much about Williams, but Spears is out of control. All she wants is attention, if she had a good head on her shoulders she'd realize that everyone has to take responsibility for their actions, and that means raising her children- if she can even have visitation rights now. She used to be my favorite but now I just see her as a whiney, self-involved, brat! She needs to grow up!


brittany use to be my fav but what has happen to her?


I think Simon is comparing apples to oranges here. Neither Britney or Robbie have complained that they don't have enough material goods or wealth in their lives. They're in rehab because they have chemical dependencies, which has NOTHING to do with the fact that there's people in third world countries suffering. They're two totally different types of issues! But the mighty Simon Cowell said that's the way it is, so it must be! *rolls eyes*


Simon, for once I really and truly agree with you. She would be on the first plane outta there.............


Just get this kid some Help......Dont let her out of rehab....Simon is right , but she needs medical attention...when she's better...simon can take her on the trip he's talking about....


Simon is right, but he is also in need of growing up and stop acting extremely obnoxious whenever he is on camera.


your hair is disgusting.......o yea u dont have any hair
