The feisty US X Factor judge has already clashed with the show’s creative director Brian Friedman over her contestants’ performances and Brian admitted their relationship has been tense as a result.
Speaking at the ‘X Factor’ finalists party in Los Angeles on Monday, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz “It’s definitely been a new experience in trying to build new relationships and getting to know each other. Demi and I are a learning process because we are brand new and she is a bold strong personality. We definitely have contrasting ideas so it’s been tough but I think we are getting there. We had a chat and decided to work together and make sure that we’re not giving conflicting ideas to her contestants. I think when we go get there her category is really going to thrive.”
Brian has found it easier to collaborate with Britney Spears and Simon Cowell, saying that he has a good relationship with both judges after having worked with them in the past. He added “Simon and I have had seven years to work this out and my relationship with Britney is incredible. She trusts me when it comes to staging and choreography. ”
Brian also revealed he would love if Britney and Demi performed a duet at one of the live shows and would jump at the chance to choreograph it. He said “A Britney and Demi duet would be so amazing, I am going to have to talk to them about that.”Tweet
