Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Simon Cowell is a HUGE Rebecca Black Fan

YouTube “sensation” Rebecca Black has blown up over the course of the week and she’s attracted a lot of (mostly negative) attention. Now X-Factor judge and former American Idol mean guy, Simon Cowell, has said that he’s interested in meeting with her. But don’t get excited just yet, Rebecca. Simon’s not a fan of your music, he’s a fan of your scandal.

Simon told, “I love her, the fact that she’s gotten so much publicity. People are so upset about the song, but I think it’s hysterical. I want to meet her. Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet. I love people like that.”

So Simon should be taking meetings with Omarosa, Flora from The Real World Miami and Mike Huckabee too, right? Trying not to roll my eyes so hard that the muscles connecting them to my skull don’t snap like twigs, ‘scuse me.

And P.S. I still can’t get over that her parents PAID for her to make the “Friday” video. That’s so skeezy.
