Damn You, Simon Cowell....

This sounds like quite possibly some of the worst music to come out in the not-too-distant future, even by American Idol standards: “I want to go rock — David Bowie and Queen, but make it more easy for people to get."

*Sigh*....I'll grant that, to this day, it's mind boggling how anybody could let a song like "Bicycle" enter into the public domain, but beyond that...

A) David Bowie was fine the way he was back in the 1970s and 1980s
B) There's a word for the kind of music you're describing - I believe the technical term is "a porta-potty's worth of absolute lowest common-denominator shit."
C) I gleefully know very little about current "pop" music, but I'm fairly certain, without even having heard Lady Gaga, that her producer will not be giving you that "David Bowie/Queen" sound.
D) Do you even know anything about David Bowie? Quick hint: there is no one David Bowie "sound".
E) It's "easier," not "more easy."
