X-Factor: Paulina Rubio says Simon Cowell will have no trouble breastfeeding his new baby
Anyone who has ever watched X-Factor or old-school American Idol knows that Simon Cowell's wardrobe is pretty much made entirely of black and white v-neck tees that are all way, way too tight in the chest. That's probably why his new X-Factor co-star Paulina Rubio couldn't help but poke a little fun at him at the show's launch.
"I heard Simon is going to breastfeed," Rubio hilariously told the crowd of the dad-to-be (who made headlines earlier this month after it was revealed he was expecting his first child with his friend's wife, Lauren Silverman). Haha! Looks like Cowell is going to have his hands full with the feisty Rubio on the panel this season!
As the audience giggled at Rubio's comment, Cowell himself remained good-natured, also laughing and replying by asking, "I am going to breastfeed am I?" Well, at least we can know the often somber-faced Cowell can actually take a joke!
I can't help but think this is probably an accurate reflection of the environment on the show's panel now. Cowell might have been the most opinionated person at the judge's table in the past, but with three fierce females on board this season--Rubio, fellow Latina Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland--I have a feeling that's no longer the case. In fact, seeing as how Lovato and Cowell have gone head-to-head before, I'm thinking that the addition of these other two outspoken will make it even harder for him to get a word in edgewise. One thing's for sure: it'll definitely be interesting to see how the vibe between all four coaches plays out.
