Washington (ANI): Singer Lady Gaga has said that she does not want to be a judge on TV show ''American Idol'', because it is difficult for her to criticise someone else's talent. The ''Poker Face'' singer denied that she would be a judge on the show. "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," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
The singer also slammed shows that push new artists straight into the limelight, claiming they should spend time nurturing their talent. "It's more about growing and struggling and playing live. It would be very uncomfortable for me to judge someone else," she said.
Already, celebrities of the likes of Victoria Beckham, Shania Twain and Mary J Blige have appeared as guest judges on the talent show after Paula Abdul decided not to return for the new season. Meanwhile, it was recently announced that US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has replaced Paula on the judging panel, alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi.
