Apparently the Kelly Clarkson/Clive Davis bitch fight is turning into the music industry’s version of the backwoods feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys. Everyone who wants to be anyone is taking sides (and how’s that for clever?).
The latest loud mouth to offer his totally unsolicited opinion is American Idol mean judge Simon Cowell. And I’m sure Kelly is just thrilled to be hearing from His Crankiness again.
Crabby Simon Cowell weighed in on the ongoing feud between Kelly Clarkson and Sony/BMG boss Clive Davis — and he’s firmly in the Davis camp. Clarkson and Davis butted heads over Clarkson’s newest album — with a catty Kelly saying to Davis, “You’re 80, you’re not supposed to like my album.”
Cowell fired back in Davis’ defense, reports Page Six. “Clive Davis at 80 is better than 99 percent of the people in the music business in their 20s, 30s and 40s … and he’s not 80 … [Davis] is the boss of the record company, and it’s his job to advise.”
Of course Clive Davis just happens to be the money behind the contract promised to the winner of AI, the show that pays Simon’s tight fitting t-shirt bills. So I don’t think Kelly’s too shocked. I, however, am totally blown away and bewildered by this stunning turn of events.
