Lady Gaga against talent shows

Lady Gaga hates TV talent shows.

The 'Poker Face' singer has no interest in being a judge on 'American Idol', insisting she would find it difficult to criticise someone else's talent.

She said: "I did appear on the show but I am not going to be a judge. I generally feel uncomfortable judging other artists anyway. I don't feel that a musician's life is a contest."

Gaga has also slammed shows that thrust new artists straight into the limelight, claiming they should spend time nurturing their talent.

She said: "It's more about growing and struggling and playing live. It would be very uncomfortable for me to judge someone else."

A host of celebrity judges including Victoria Beckham, Shania Twain and Mary J Blige, have appeared on 'American Idol' after Paula Abdul decided not to return for the new season.

Earlier this week, it was announced US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has replaced Paula on the judging panel, alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi
