Now that we've entered the last week of the year, everyone is reflecting on the best moments of the year. For music magnate Simon Cowell, that means declaring who's hot and who's not - and what that means for 2014.
The X Factor judge has told a UK radio station that despite the hype around Gaga's latest album Artpop, the controversial popster is simply not cutting through - and he thinks it's because we're sick of it!
“I think overall this has been a really, really good year for music, I was saying that to someone last night, it’s almost as if songs have come back into fashion again.
"I mean, some people have had a great year, some people have had a bad year, it’s quite interesting that after all the hype, Lady Gaga [had lacklustre album sales], it’s almost as if people have just had enough of it.”
Meanwhile, he had nothing but praise for Beyonce's late-to-the-game surprise album release, predicting nothing but future success for the XO diva.
“You see the Beyoncé album drop out of nowhere in the middle of the night and crash the internet. No pre-promotion, no stupid pictures, nothing. And again, maybe this is the sign of how things are going to change in the future."
Are you over Gaga, or has Simon got it completely wrong?
