In case you didn't already think Simon Cowell is an asswipe, a British tabloid has quoted him bloviating about Bob Dylan, Yahoo Music reports.

"A singing poet? It just bores me to tears," he told a U.K. tabloid, before explaining the relative merits of Clarkson against Dylan.

He continued: "If I had 10 Dylans in the final of American Idol, we would not get 30 million viewers."
