Singer John Legend slammed Britney on X Factor, saying she, who’s sold over 100 million albums, is not a singer!

“You know it’s interesting. It should be very interesting. I don’t have much to say,” he tells Eonline.com at the EW-ABC Upfront party when asked about The X Factor’s new judges. “It’s interesting when people, you know, are judging singing competitions when they aren’t really singers.”

Legend followed up his statement, Tweeting followers:


“I’ve never heard demi’s voice btw. Wasn’t referring to her.”

Fans fought back, making “We Love Britney’s Voice” a world-wide Trending Topic on Twitter.



The real legend, Robin Thicke, thinks otherwise. “Oh come on, everything Britney does, she excels at. Demi is a lovely young lady, and I’m sure they’ll do nothing but make the show a lot more fun to watch.”

Kelly Clarkson also shares Thicke’ sentiment about Brit’s (and Demi’s) role. “I’m excited for both of them. I’m a big fan of both of them. Both of those girls are super sweet,” she gushes. “I think it’s fun for them too to just be more out in the public eye again. I think those two are two you really want to root for and you really want them to succeed, so I think that’s exciting.”

“Obviously they are both performers so…I think that show really needs it I don’t think everybody latched onto that show like they thought they would.”
