The X Factor USA host Steve Jones blames his rude manners on screaming producers of the hit show.
He jokes that during his hosting duties, he gets yelled at by show bosses to shut up judge Paula Abdul.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he said, “I’m wearing an earpiece and there’s about five people screaming, ‘Shut Paula up. Shut her up now. Move on.’ I’m going to have hearing damage in this ear by the end of the series.”
He went on to say, “I feel terrible because I feel on occasions I’m coming across as rude and abrupt and that’s really not me. I cherish every word that comes out of Paula.”
He also went on to joke that he wishes Paula had an “off button”. Ha. We all know how she can go on and on and on, but he has come off as a bit rude. He added, “She just talks and talks and talks. Doesn’t she? Where is the off button on this woman? Off, next please. You know?”
Too funny. Sometimes I wonder if she does have an off button….but we know she doesn’t. Even though she no longer has any groups to mentor, she does lavish praise on a lot of the remaining acts.
What do you think?
