London: Simon Cowell has praised US ‘X Factor’ judge Nicole Scherzinger for being ‘selfish and ruthless’.
When Scherzinger made a jibe at Cowell during the show’s launch telling him that he can’t get rid of her, obviously reminding him of the axing of Cheryl Cole, Cowell answered her back saying that there’s nothing wrong with her being selfish.
“I think you’ve proven that there’s nothing wrong with being selfish,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
“You are somebody I’ve admired, who has ruthlessly succeeded in their career even when you left the Pussycat girls behind.
“And there’s nothing wrong with that because it’s about ambition,” he added.
