Talent show judge Simon Cowell has slammed pop queen Madonna for letting age get the better of her.

The American Idol and Pop Idol expert was discussing the physical attributes of female singers with fellow judges PAUL ABDUL and Randy Jackson when he mocked Madonna's appearance and lifestyle.

Cowell says, "BRITNEY (SPEARS) is cute, isn't she? Beyonce is good-looking. Jennifer Lopez is good-looking. Madonna used to be good-looking."

After criticising the MATERIAL GIRL, Abdul and Jackson groaned in disgust.

A defensive Cowell shouted, "She's a housewife!"
