According to recent Hollywood celebrity gossip, JOHN LEGEND dissed new “X Factor” judges BRITNEY SPEARS and DEMI LOVATO by saying that “they aren’t really singers.”

Harsh!

Apparently, Howard Stern isn’t the only one who thinks Britney Spears, whom he called a “train wreck,” might not be the best choice to judge a singing competition. But how can anyone criticize Demi (who recently signed on as an “X Factor” judge alongside Britney, Simon Cowell, and L.A. Reid) and her singing abilities? Sure, the girl has some problems—she went to rehab at the age of 18, after all—and is probably too young for the job, but still… she has a very powerful voice!

Nonetheless, when John Legend was interviewed at a red carpet event in NYC, the Grammy winning singer took a jab at both girls’ vocal talents. When asked if  he had anything to say about the girls’ appointment as judges on “X Factor,” John said:

“It should be very interesting. I don’t have much to say. It’s interesting when people that, you know, are judging singing competitions when they aren’t really singers.”

Burn!

Other singers who were interviewed, however, had nothing but praises for the new “X Factor” judges.

Kelly Clarkson said:

“I’m excited for both of them, I’m a big fan of both of them… I think those two are two girls you really want to root for… I think it’ll be good for [the show].”

Meanwhile, Robin Thicke also offered his opinion:

“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.”

What can you say about John Legend’s comment?
