Christina Aguilera is notorious for speaking her mind, but at a recent press conference, she took a stab at The X Factor’s Simon Cowell.

"I've not actually seen a full episode of any of the other music shows. I saw the commercials early on of American Idol of Simon being a dick. I was like, 'Man, that's not what it's about!'” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

The pop diva wants to create a positive environment for her contestants instead of hurting them, like Simon is notorious for doing.

“I didn't want to treat people like that,” she continued. “I wanted to do The Voice to show that we can be positive. We don't have to knock people down.”

Xtina also notes that The Voice is different because of its pool of talent, which “inspires” her. She says, “There's a lot of auto tune going on now and that's all great, it's an art form. But what's great about The Voice [is that] it's just raw, real talent."

But that doesn’t mean that the other shows can’t produce worthy talent, she noted.

"Jennifer Hudson came from American Idol and went on to do Dreamgirls and won an Oscar," she added. "I know we all have different formats. I don't even watch my own show: I tape it, I'm out. Time to be mommy and time to work on my record and of course invest time in my team, picking songs. I juggle a lot."
