It sounds like Simon Cowell's mum is even sassier than he is. Simon told Leno that after she watched an episode of the show with the new judges, she asked Simon to tell "Paula she looks tired."

This is something no woman wants to hear, especially if that woman is a man named Steven Tyler.

For his part, Simon thinks the new judges are even more harsh than he is. Apparently Jenny from Da Block and the rest of the gang are out to prove that they're no softies either.
