Contrary to swirling rumors, insisted he never called and boring. "This was completely misreported. It's the complete opposite in fact," a representative for the media mogul told RadarOnline.

"Simon is a massive fan of both and he always refers to them as amongst the artists he most admires," the publicist continued clearing up the reports. "He thinks they are two of the most interesting, talented and relevant artists today."

The judge on "" himself sang praise for Beyonce. He said the "Run the World (Girls)" singer is "the biggest star we've seen in 20 years." He added, "We're seeing sort of the rise of the super female pop star. It's like a different breed. Beyonce has that."

When it comes to GaGa, Cowell gushed she "has The X Factor. She's smart ... [and] has real ambition." He went on, "She is a total, utter star ... You have to be open and embrace this level of expression. You hope to God that you can find someone like her."

"She's both talented and interesting. She's worked it all out for herself. You never get the feeling somebody is controlling her," he talked more about the Mother Monster. "[She] is the most relevant pop artist in the world at the moment. I've met her. She is very smart. I like her."

In short, Cowell described the two female singers as some of the hottest acts in the game. "It's like they've all been bred to take over the world and dominate everything in entertainment," he stated. "They are unbelievable, these girls."

Despite having high praise for both GaGa and Beyonce, Cowell said nothing about who was also rumored to make the cut to his "boring" list.
