Just As I Was Starting To Think Brian McFadden Was OK….
Just when I start to think maybe Brian McFadden is not a complete tool I go and read something that goes and makes me think he is again.
In the Sun Herald today Kirstie Lau wrote a little vignette about Brian McFadden and he makes it sound like Australia’s Got Talent is lucky to have him.
The article states:
It was always an obvious revenge tactic but Brian McFadden has confirmed Kyle Sandilands jumped on board with Australia’s Got Talent to ruffle Australian Idol’s feathers. McFadden tells S Sandiland’s decision was completely calculated.
“The main reason he’s doing this show is just to piss of Idol,” he says. “It’s just to stick two fingers up and say, ‘Well, your show’s gone and look at my show.’ And that’s the thing about Kyle and what I love about Kyle. I’m not even telling you anything he wouldn’t tell you himself.”
McFadden added that Sandilands purposely lured many of the Australian Idol crew over to Channel Seven.
“The main producer on Australia’s Got Talent, Greg Burness, he was Idol’s producer and Kyle brought him over,” McFadden says. “The Idol team are great with Kyle; it’s only Channel Ten who’s pissed off.”
McFadden was referring to the axing of Sandilands received after a controversial radio stunt.
The Irish singer, who is a judge on the new show alongside Sandilands and Danni Minogue, admits he and Sandilands only accepted their gigs after making certain Australia’s Got Talent would undergo a total revamp. “I was living with Kyle in LA when he got the calls and I’d never seen the show before, so I didn’t know it was quite cheap and shitty before,” McFadden says.
“When Kyle was doing the conversations, the reason he took it at first was because they said they were going to triple the budget to make it like Britain’s Got Talent. We said we wouldn’t want to do the show if ti was the same as it used to be, only replacing Red [Symons, a past judge] and Tom [Burlinson, another judge]. They said they’d give it a massive push. I had to be a part of that then.”
Really he make it sound that Channel Seven should be grateful he deigned to do the show.
However it appears Brian does like to say or tweet what he thinks as he just called his former wife Kerry Katona a “pig faced mole” on twitter.
According to the Herald Sun, this was in response to her claims that he only spoke to his two daughters five times a year. He of course is refuting this and says he speaks to them a couple of times a week. I would have thought by now they would have been skyping each other.
Anyway one thing is for certain neither will be awarded parent of the year.
