Fatboy Slim tells Simon Cowell to "f**k off' over new reality show
Reality super guru Simon Cowell got a mouthful of super star DJ Fatboy Slim when he approached the DJ about a new reality TV show. Digital Spy reports that The X Factor mastermind has recently been developing the reality show Ultimate DJ to find the next superstar DJ, but Fatboy Slim argued that the format wouldn't translate well to television. Digital Spy revealed Fatboy Slim saying "Simon Cowell was talking about doing a show and everyone in the business, he kind of started approaching us, and we were like, 'F**k off. No - that's a terrible idea!'" He went on to say "That's the good thing about dance music; it grows organically through drunk people late at night coming up with stupid ideas. It's not something that can be scripted or transported into a TV studio," report Digital Spy.
