chit chat, over petite cakes and Evian water, in a hoity toity
Beverly Hills hotel quickly veered off from his new album
and his new film, and turned into
a serious discussion about the continuing pop crazed show American
got very animated and didn't hold back saying, " I don't
like that show! The people that come on there get their feelin's
crushed by the dude Simon." He thought for a nanosecond then
spewed, "And he's a non-talented mutha fucka! I don't understand
how he can crush their spirits like that!" He's seething
now, " If somebody's great on there, he never says their
great! It's like hockey - a spectator sport. And I know a lot
of times they wanna say, "Fuck you Simon!" So I'll say
it for you." He smiles with an almost sinister grin.
continued trying to explain his distaste for the show and Simon

understand that shit - it's a bullshit ass show!"
But is Simon just a ratings tool or just a tool? Snoop got quiet,

breaks into a ratskeller British accent to mock Simon] 'I think
it's garbage." He continued hopeful, " They have Paula
Abdul and the other brother up there too and they're gonna make
people feel good! And that matters you know what I'm sayin'? 'Cause
I'm an artist. I know that the reason I didn't jump in the game
earlier is I didn't wanna get criticized. That crushes your feelings.
That hurts! It's a slap in the face. If you are garbage it's the
