"X Factor" judge Simon Cowell let his feelings be known about NBC’s "The Voice" winning an Emmy, telling The Hollywood Reporter that he "couldn’t give a shit" about it.
"The only thing I care about are the ratings [for my show]," Cowell told the publication. He made the comments Monday evening at a screening party for "X Factor" in West Hollywood.
By contrast, former "American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe wrote on Twitter that he was "shocked" that "The Voice" won an Emmy.
THR adds: "True to his word, Cowell had tongues wagging inside the penthouse club when invited press realized his pregnant girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, was by the Brit’s side. The two later nuzzled in a corner by themselves before Cowell sat down for a procession of interviews. Silverman didn’t budge."
