Simon Cowell Disses J-Hud!

Simon Cowell targeted his sharp tongue on new Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson:

"Jennifer Hudson said American Idol was a 'stepping stone' for her. Stepping stone? It was her big opportunity to become noticed and she got noticed and she got Dreamgirls," Cowell said, noting that other past contestants "deliberately turn against the show that made them successful. The reason (people) come on the show is because all the doors had been slammed in their face." (Source)

I have always been a Simon Cowell fan because he always speaks the truth but this time he has gone too far. Why can't he just let Jennifer bask in her Oscar glory without him having a dig at her. He just cant accept the fact that although she didn't win American Idol she has gone on to bigger and better things than than some of the winners. So what if she doesn't attribute her success to American Idol? Jennifer was right when she said it was 'stepping stone' because if it wasn't for her sheer determination she wouldn't be where she is today. The ridicule she faced when she was a contestant on the show, could have easily made her lose confidence in her abilities. Simon should congratulate her for what she has achieved and get over it!
