“Britney is fearless,” Simon told Radar exclusively, adding the Southern Belle has “no qualms” about turning down a contestant if she feels they don’t have the act to succeed.

“To get a ‘No’ out of Paula, as you know, was like getting blood out of a stone,” Simon said, “because she didn’t want to be unpopular.”

The resurgent Britney has no such issues, Simon said, adding she can blankly turn a contestant down even if there are “4,000 people going crazy about [the] contestant.”

“When the two of them get together, and me and [L.A. Reid] want someone to go through, these two, they gang up,” he said. “And that’s what happens when you put two girls together!”
