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.
