Simon Cowell is the reason people watch American Idol and Britain’s Got Talent, his biting criticisms are part of the fun. Cowell realizes though, that sometimes his honesty borders on mean and has started to regret some of his harsher words. In an interview airing with the show Piers Morgan’s Life Stories on Britain’s ITV1 next week, he explains “There’s many, many times where I’ve watched the show back and I’m absolutely appalled. You do the show, you’re not aware of what’s happening in the room outside. You know, somebody just said ‘My dog Lassie died yesterday’, I’m in a bad mood and, you know, awful, and you see it in that context, it’s very, very difficult to watch.” Maybe it’s true, what people are saying about how his current girlfriend/fianceé/life partner Mezhgan Hussainy turning him into a big softy after all.
And let’s hope he remembers to tone it down next time our beloved Todrick Hall takes the stage on this season of Idol. Our love for him is irrational, sure, but that kid can’t seem to catch a break from Cowell and Co. [Photo: Getty Images]
