Madonna Impersonator Sues Simon Cowell: Put-Downs Too Much For Wimp

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Britain`s Got Talent is being sued for £250,000 by a Madonna impersonator over Simon Cowell`s put-downs.

madonnaPhillip Grimmer, 57, gyrated to Madonna`s dance anthem Hung Up on stage while wearing a purple leotard, knee-high boots and blonde wig.

Cowell branded his bizarre tribute act `monstrous` and `horrendous`, saying: `Madonna at 95 would look better and dance better than you." - DailyMail.Co.UK
The sarcastic judge has been cursed at by dejected contestants, but this is the first time he`s been sued.

Grimmer can`t successfully sue Cowell for telling the truth when he labeled his act "monstrous and horrendous."

But Simon also remarked: "Here we have a hard of hearing and short sighted Madonna."

Bingo! Grimmer, who is hard of hearing and near-sighted, is claiming he was discriminated against because of his disabilities.

For good measure Grimmer is also suing Cowell for discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, sex and age bias.

I saw Grimmer`s performance on YouTube and he is an ugly, untalented jerk who had no business performing on "Britain`s Got Talent."

Grimmer is angry because he was introduced as a "drag queen"; he worries that his friends may now mistake him for a gay cross-dresser.

Hello, if you don purple leotards and a blond wig on national television you will be mistaken for a gay cross-dresser whether or not you are introduced as a "drag queen."

Grimmer`s claims of discrimination are patently ridiculous, and if his case goes to court I`m sure the judge will be as harsh on him as Cowell.
