Simon Cowell Mocks Scotty McCreery – VIDEO

Listen to a cocky Simon Cowell mock American Idol Season 10 Idol winner, Scotty McCreery in this video taken outside of the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Tuesday night.

When TMZ dude asks him to talk in an American accent, Simon drawls, “I love you this big” in an exaggerated Southern accent.

Ha. He’s not laughing so hard this morning.

    He is such an ass – big time Brit making fun of southern American accent, AI, and of Scotty all at the same time. Not even the accent he is mostly exposed to being in California or New York most of the time.

    What kind of egos make people think they are the definitive authority on what type of music “everyone” should like and listen to? Staggers the imagination!

  • Studio57

    Simon has Little Man’s Disease aka Napoleon Syndrome. He and Adam Levine are cut from the same cloth. The same small little tiny cloth.

  • windmills

    Awwww I think it’s sweet how Scotty was on Simon’s mind :P

  • abbysee

    Awwww I think it’s sweet that Scotty was on Simon’s mind :p

    LOL!

  • Kylee

    Maybe he is bitter that Scotty was part of the reason(not all, but he had a part), in bringing interest back to idol- after Simon tried destroying it in season 9.

  • tinawina

    Oh my. LOL

    I think he was a little hyped up after Kimmel got him started on that Idol bash-fest. That plus that screening for the critics just had gotten good reviews, right? Someone was feeling himself. Heh.

    Let’s see how much of that we’ll get going forward, Simon. :D

  • Trina

    Douchebag ugh. It must burn his ass the season Scotty won survived just fine without his egotistical ass.

  • Eileen99

    lol, classy.

  • aa618892

    Oh Simon, lol. Remember Karma!

  • CanadianLady

    More promo for Scotty. Can’t hurt. :)

  • Kitwana

    He was trying to be funny. It was typical TMZ banter. Nothing to get upset about.

  • keware

    He doesn’t even know who won The Voice, but he knows the words to Scotty’s first single. I say it’s actually more of a compliment than a dig.

  • adolf_hipster

    lol i think it’s pretty telling that apart from that 1 guy who religiously follows billboard charts since ~1958 and knows every bloody song that charted on hot 100, no one knows Scotty’s song or gets the jab. And this is environment where people follow celebrity 24/7.

  • Listening

    Umm it’s not that big a deal heck it’s not even a little deal it’s just a country accent. It’s not like he said something horrible about Scotty.

  • RCUnfiltered

    Much ado about nothing, methinks.

  • ituneit

    Ha ha I thought it was funny! Sorry but Scotty’s voice and southern drawl are perfect for comedic material. I’m on #TeamSimon

  • randrambles

    I actually found it funny.

  • koshka

    LOL no worries Simon.. I mock AI too. :) I actually mock X-factor as well, just to keep things even.

  • Grammie Kari

    He doesn’t even know who won The Voice, but he knows the words to Scotty’s first single. I say it’s actually more of a compliment than a dig.

    Simon has been known to not remember things. Remember how he insulted Carly by not knowing her name and calling her “tahat Irish girl”. Simon may claim a lack of memory, but his interns have all that information on all the (talent) reality shows wriiten somewhere. Simon knows… he knows.

    He can be such a jerk, but I don’t think the comment did any harm.

  • cherelann

    If Scotty fans perceive this as a dis, he has just alienated 20 million potential viewers for his show…although he may have done this in jest, he doesn’t have the comedic chops to pull it off.

  • jjrr1942

    Don’t think it “harmed” anyone – just one more instance where his colossal ego comes to the fore. And the TMZ people knew who Scotty was…the AI alum were actually on the TMZ show early on in the process and mentioned his name after Sir Ego did his little blurb. And you’re right cherelann, his sense of humor leaves a lot to be desired.

  • chearts77

    Ha ha!! In the beginning of the season, he did an interview and someone asked him about the contestants on AI and he said that the only one he remembers is the “deep voiced county boy”. Seems he’s got Scotty on the brain.

  • jeffreythegleek

    Maybe Peter Rice, Kevin Reilly and Mike Darnell will slap his wrist and say, “Bad Simon!” And Simon will say sorry and invite Scotty to come sing on his show. You know, show the X Factor contestants how it’s done.

  • Listening

    I don’t think Scotty has 20 million fans he only has 319,061 twitter followers and even if all his fans don’t follow him on twitter what like 200,000 more.

  • Tess

    no one knows Scotty’s song or gets the jab

    Since the clip showed 5 people at the most I think “no one” is a pretty far stretch. And Levine doesn’t know anything about anyone (or pretends not to)…the guy is the absolute perfect straight man. I luvs me some TMZ.

  • ituneit

    If Scotty fans perceive this as a dis, he has just alienated 20 million potential viewers for his show

    Wow! Scotty has 20 million fans already? He’s going to be a record breaking seller of all time when his CD comes out! Bigger than Michael Jackson! Didn’t realize someone from Idol was so almighty!

  • Tess

    By the way is Simon keeping a low profile today…haven’t seen him show up anywhere trying to put a spin on his dismal debut numbers.

  • jammasta

    This is much ado about nothing to me. More of a compliment that Simon at least somewhat knows of the song, really.

    Awwww I think it’s sweet how Scotty was on Simon’s mind :P

    God dammit I laughed out loud.

  • Landmd

    I thought it was funny!! LOL Simon you need to work on that country accent!!

  • BonnieDee

    I really didn’t think it was mocking. Just joking around.

  • Mtlfan

    he’s just joking around imo. Pretty inoffensive

  • Niall

    I’m no Simon Cowell fan but it’s pretty clear he was just kidding around in response to the TMZ reporter. If he literally starts dissing Scotty well, all people have to do is remind him he championed Lee DeWyze. LOL

  • iluvai

    I thought it was funny. :) I guess he has Scotty’s song on his mind. ha!

  • Kylee

    If he literally starts dissing Scotty well, all people have to do is remind him he championed Lee DeWyze. LOL

    Exactly, LOL!

  • Trina

    LOL good point Niall. Someone needs to ask Simon if he can remember a line from Lee’s song heh.

  • eyelinerandcigarettes

    I’m a Scotty fan, and I actually found this funny. At least he knows the song, lol.

  • kmd

    I thought it was very funny. I am not going to even say what I think of that song other than Simon did a good country impression. It is also funny seeing Simon blow smoke from his cigarette into the fans. Hysterical.

  • hoa_teca

    Don’t mind that much and it comes from a Scotty fan.

    Yep, at least Scotty sticks in this clown’s mind. During AI, Scotty was the only one he remembered. And now he even knows Scottys ILYTB. The boy must have reminded him that AI did well without him.

  • Tess

    It is also funny seeing Simon blow smoke from his cigarette into the fans. Hysterical.

    I wouldn’t call it hysterical…I’d call it self-centered.

  • kmd

    I think that whether you are a fan of Simon’s or not you would have to admit that he has been very successful. He kind of knows what he is doing. I am sure that tmz being there was not just by accident.

  • tomr

    Once an a–hole always an a–hole!

  • kmd

    Simon does not care. He is laughing all the way to the bank. lol

  • dodon

    This is rather classless of Simon, but I considered it a compliment that Scotty is the only season 10 alum who sticks out for him from the getgo.

    Yep, at least Scotty sticks in this clown’s mind. During AI, Scotty was the only one he remembered. And now he even knows Scottys ILYTB. The boy must have reminded him that AI did well without him.

    This. :)

    Simon does not care. He is laughing all the way to the bank. lol

    lol. The same goes for Scotty. I doubt he’ll think much of it. He knows Simon hates him.

  • kmd

    Actually I am not really a Simon fan or a Scotty fan so I do not care. I still think the video if funny. I am watching the X Factor.

  • Incipit

    Ah. Simon – one step behind Randy and M. Morrison on this one – you ought to have taken a PA swipe at Jonah Hill, so he could call you out on Kimmel, get you some more airtime. He’s from LA, that ought to have been an easy mimic. Pay attention, now. [/sarcasm]

  • Pam

    I think it’s sweet how Scotty was on Simon’s mind

    That was good! Hee! If I could high five you right now I would. :D

    I have one note of criticism for Simon. That is one bad impression of us southerners. ;)

  • LexieN

    ^This. While I don’t believe this will harm Scotty, maybe even give him extra publicity while he’s on an airplane back from the Phillipines (where his single is now charting:), as a southerner, I actually get weary of this kind of stuff. Ah, well, another day…another night where I wasn’t going to watch X Factor anyway…

  • jennyl

    I thought it was funny.

  • tomr

    Just like Simon to mock a minor. Once a bully always a bully.

  • Indigobunting

    I thought it was pretty funny, actually.

    What a disconnect seeing Simon puffing on his cancer stick, lol! I didn’t even know he smoked; he must be quite the addict to keep it up even during an interview.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    Keep drinking those smoothies, Simon…

    Delusions. Delusions.

  • mm99

    What’s Wrong with that man?! I think he actually thinks he’s funny… well, Simon, you’re not.

  • NOLA

    I remember when the Idol Auditions first began last year, and someone interviewed Simon for his opinion on the contestants. All he said was that he remembered one young guy with a very deep voice.

    I think Simon has been watching Scotty for a long time!

  • Blower

    I thought it was very funny. I am not going to even say what I think of that song other than Simon did a good country impression. It is also funny seeing Simon blow smoke from his cigarette into the fans. Hysterical.

    I thought it was funny too especially cigarette part. lmao

    I’m no Simon Cowell fan but it’s pretty clear he was just kidding around in response to the TMZ reporter. If he literally starts dissing Scotty well, all people have to do is remind him he championed Lee DeWyze. LOL

    Hahah… Exactly

  • heat914

    I thought it was funny…typical TMZ :) Even Simon gets a pass at MJ’s as he’s dissing an Idol and not a poster :)

    I feel the need to address the elephant in the room and present the question…what if Simon had championed Crystal? Let’s face it…her numbers and airplay weren’t exactly Adams and I don’t see Casey flying up the charts.

  • Haleysshindig

    The man is just joking around with no malicious intent that I can see. I thought it was rather funny:)

  • Tera2

    Simon had to take a dig at Scotty cause he has his battle with idol stuck in his head, and he’s a winner whose “I love you this big” did better than Lee from the season he left.
