He was the first artist not to come out of 'The X Factor' to be signed to Simon Cowell's record label Syco in six years but this hasn't stopped Labrinth from slamming his boss's show.
Talking exclusively to omg! at 'The Sweeney' premiere tonight, Labrinth explained that he wasn't a fan of 'The X Factor'.
He told us: "X Factor isn't about musicians; it's about people that want to be famous"
"I don't watch it — it isn't interesting to me. I think X Factor is… the X Factor, that's it."
The singer did however admit that boss Simon was the best in the industry when it comes to launching the careers of singers.
He said: "It's not my thing, but if you want to be a singer then Simon Cowell is your man, but if you are an artist you do your own thing."
Good damage control there Labrinth!
Labrinth was signed to Syco in 2010 with song 'Earthquake' gaining the second highest selling first week sales of 2011- being piped to the top spot by X Factor winners Little Mix's 'Cannonball'.
Maybe that's why he has such a sore spot when it comes to the X Factor?

We then asked the opinionated singer what he thought about rapper Proffessor Green's outspoken behaviour on Twitter.
He admitted: "I think freedom of speech is a good thing, it works for some people but I love him — you've got to say what's on your mind."
Clearly Labrinth practices what he preaches.
