Yankovic Slams Simon For Softening Up

Parody singer 'WEIRD AL' YANKOVIC has slammed SIMON COWELL losing his notorious nasty streak in the latest season of TV talent contest AMERICAN IDOL.

Cowell has returned to the show alongside fellow judges PAULA ABDUL and RANDY JACKSON, but Yankovic admits he's upset to see how inoffensive the British music mogul's criticisms have become.

He says, "My biggest disappointment so far is Simon Cowell. He just isn't as nasty as he used to be.

"I think I speak for the entire American viewing audience when I say that we want to see these contestants slitting their wrists as they're walking off stage."
