Howard Stern to Piers Morgan: I love you on America’s Got Talent.. but who the hell knows what you’re going to do here?”Author: Jon Martin | Tuesday, January 18th, 2011 |
Earlier in the week shock jock Howard Stern took a break from his Sirius Radio show to sit down with Piers Morgan on CNN. Morgan, who judges on America’s Got Talent, just replaced Larry King.
Stern doesn’t do many interviews, so it’s very fitting that this is Morgan’s first interview. That’s not to say that it went off without a hitch though. As the two began to discuss Morgan’s new show, Stern complimented him, saying he loves him on America’s got talent, but he had no idea why Morgan was doing this show.
“I love you on America’s Got Talent, but who the hell knows what you’re going to do on here? uhh… they tell me you’re a journalist…” -Howard Stern to Piers Morgan on Series Premiere.
Last year, during the controversy surrounding the tonight show, Stern took the opportunity to trash Jay Leno. This soon became a meme as everyone started trashing Leno because he went back on his word and stole Conan O’Brien’s chance at being host. Stern still doesn’t like Leno and he doesn’t have a problem telling anyone that will listen.
“I don’t know why he’s beating David Lettermen in the ratings, it’s beyond my comprehension, America must be filled with morons, they lay in bed- the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”
Last year, the other big Stern controversy was the rumor that he was being picked to host American Idol. During this period, Stern denied he had been approached and too the opportunity to trash most of the current cast members on the show except Simon Cowell. Stern said the retooled Idol would fail and fail hard without Cowell. Being a radio personality, Stern is no stranger to music, he started as a DJ, now.. he says he’s likes Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga…
Stern also took some time to discuss the relationship between him and his father. If you’ve listened to his who, you know that his father was very strict and would often belittle him, even though he was just being a kid. It seemed to effect him a great deal and Stern took some time to open up about it on the show. Stern said he often struggled for his father’s respect.
