Last month, Elton John blasted TV talent shows like American Idol and the U.K.’s X Factor, saying the contestants are “a bit like products… I hate what happens to people’s careers, because it’s not thought about properly.

Now Simon Cowell, a former judge on Idol and the producer of X Factor, has spoken out, saying that he and Elton have “had this sort of love hate relationship… That is why I’ve always liked him because he’s bitchy.” WOW!!!

Elton, who performs in Dublin, Ireland tonight, will be back in North America for dates in February and March, including two nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
