Roger Slams Reality Shows

QUEEN drummer ROGER TAYLOR has condemned TV talent shows like AMERICAN IDOL and THE X FACTOR - because they fail to find any gifted stars.
The musician, 58, has even penned a song about his hatred of those who appear of reality shows.
He tells British radio station Heart, "People confuse fame with talent, as if one equates to the other, which it doesn't."
