The way this usually goes is a celebrity does something really outrageous, people freak out, maybe a gig or endorsement is lost and then comes the obligatory apology. (Or, if you're Justin Bieber, many apologies.) Not Natalia Kills, though.
The now-ex "X Factor" New Zealand judge who was fired this week after her vicious takedown of a contestant is not asking for your forgiveness. In fact, she's kind of doubling down.
"I feel like everyone needs to put the idea of it being a manufactured conspiracy theory behind them, there's really nothing to it," Kills told MTV Australia. "I love my husband with all of my heart, we'll stick together no matter what." (The video is blocked in the U.S., but UK site Female First posted a transcript of the interview.)
Her husband is singer Willy Moon, who was also fired after he agreed with Kills' critique of singer Joe Irvine, who she said was "disgusting" for totally copying Moon's sound and look.
"There are many sides to this story and I am not about to get an entire industry in trouble that has been going on for years and years entertaining the masses, so thank you absolutely everyone for your support," Kills added. "Thank you to all of my fans. Thank you to my husband. … I would like to wish Joe Irvine and my boys category all the best on the show."
