In case you’ve been living under a rock, been on a nice holiday (welcome back) or just generally need your brain refreshing, Natalia Kills and her husband Willy Moon have been fired from the X Factor New Zealand judging panel after their nasty verbal attack on contestant Joe Irvine.
Natalia accused poor Joe of basically stealing her husband’s style and making her feel sick (nice), causing a massive backlash against the pair and musicians including Lorde and Ellie Goulding sending their support to Joe.
The full tirade after his performance of Cry Me A River basically revolved around the fact that Joe was wearing a suit, which meant he was obviously copying Willy’s style. OF COURSE.
Natalia ranted: like this: “We have a doppelgänger in our midst. I, as an artist who respects creative integrity and intellectual property, am disgusted at how much you have copied my husband. From the hair, to the suit… do you not have any value or respect for originality?”
“You’re a laughing stock! It’s cheesy, it’s disgusting. I personally found it absolutely artistically atrocious. I am embarrassed to be sitting here in your presence having to even dignify you with an answer of my opinion. You make me sick. I’m ashamed to be here.”
Willy then put his own two penneth in, adding that he thought Joe looked like he was going to murder everyone and stitch their skin to his face.
Sadly for the couple, the backlash isn’t *quite* over just yet, as Natalia accidentally put her foot in it by suggesting Joe copied Willy’s style, leading the entire internet to dig out celebrities that SHE has seemingly copied style from.
Probably not the best move, Natalia.
Jameela Jamil, whose jokey tweet is above, got in on the act, joining a host of other comparisons including Dora the Explorer, Willy Wonka and Lady Gaga.
Here’s every celeb the internet reckons Natalia has stolen her look from (AKA EVERY PERSON EVER).
Good luck, love.
AMAZING. Also, this:
Thank you, world/the internet, for being the best shade throwers. Bad luck, Natalia.
