Default LA Reid calls The X Factor USA the "worst thing" he has ever done

LA Reid has called The X Factor USA the "worst thing" he has ever done.

The Epic Records boss, who judged the singing contest for two years back in 2011, told reporters at a Midem chat that he shouldn't have done a second season.

"It's the worst thing I've ever done... The first season, yes, I had a great time," Reid said (via Billboard).

"It was a little bit of a vacation. I'd been making music, working at running labels for a long time, and it was a little bit of, 'Let me just have some fun'.

"But the second season, I was fully engaged trying to run a label, and it wasn't fun anymore."

Reid added that he also felt the need to leave the show because it "almost destroyed" his musical taste.

"It completely threw me off," he said. "What works for television isn't necessarily the thing that works in the traditional journey of music, so I adjusted my taste for television.

"But the truth is, I lowered my bar - my bar was quite high, if I'm being honest, and as a result I didn't have the same level of success. The bar is quite high again now, but it was damaging.

"I worked with Simon Cowell, who I love and have great respect for and he has great taste, but being around him for that long, I started to take on his taste, and I'm an amateur at having his taste - I'm good at my kind of taste."
