With Nicki Minaj taking the Twitter fight to Steven Tyler, another random music feud has now cropped up.
Following Depeche Mode's Martin Gore recently telling Music Week that "somebody should shoot" Simon Cowell, The X Factor judge has fired back in a series of online digs.
"I read Martin gore wants to shoot me," Simon Tweeted yesterday. "He is in depeche mode. Do you realise how weird and stupid that makes you. Go and watch the news."
Cowell was referencing the Aurora Colorado shooting in his response, along with other recent incidents involving gun use.
Gore, of course, has clarified that he was "not advocating violence," but simply isn't a fan of Cowell's "influence in the music industry over the last god knows how many years."
Still, as Simon explained, he could have chosen his words far more wisely because ""a ton of people have got shot this year and people like weirdo gore encourage this."
In conclusion, the producer has sage advice for us all:
"I went to a thanksgiving party and someone told me to listen rather than talk. You have two ears and one mouth. Very good advice."
