Simon Cowell spoke recently on some decisions he made in the past. And he also talks about his relationship with Cheryl Cole

Simon Cowell is the ultimate musical judge. He is probably the rudest man west of Suez. The loud, straightforward and obnoxious style he adopts makes many admire him although secretly they wouldn’t want to come face to face with him. 

And while he would never admit any mistakes he had made along the way, his blunder concerning Cheryl who appeared in 2011 is something he feels sorry about. 

Cowell said that were he to go back in a time machine he would change his choice and keep her in the show. Simon says that he was under a lot of stress and so he made a big howler. 

“If I could go back in time I would have kept her on the show,” Cowell told Radio Times. “It was stupid doing what I did. I didn’t sack her personally. That was the second-biggest mistake I made. When you’re under pressure you make stupid mistakes.”

When Cheryl appeared in a strange outfit along with having piled on a few pounds, Cowell was distracted by the change of scenery.

“I haven’t a clue why she turned up like that. I asked her manager, ‘What’s she wearing, what’s happened to her hair?’ She was nervous, shy, not in her comfort zone. She’d put on a bit of weight, but not loads. The only way I can describe it is that it wasn’t Cheryl sitting in that seat.”

Cheryl posted a text message blaming Cowell. She even used the “eff” word. Cowell apologized to her and said he was contrite over his lapse in judgment.  

“The worst it got between us was when she sent me a text message. It was like when you get a really horrible letter from an ex-girlfriend. The general tone was something along the lines of “F*** you, you’ve hurt me, you’ve let me down, I can never forgive you.’ I shrank.”

He also discussed the inclusion of Mel, one of the Spice Girls, on the show. Although he hesitated in the beginning later on he was glad that he had chosen her.

“I wasn’t sure whether Mel was going to fit in or not,” Cowell told Radio Times. According to Cowell, she brought a lot of charisma and energetic vibes to the platform. Mel turned out to be a joyous and funny person.

Her epithet of Scary Spice is there for a reason after all. “But within 5 minutes I got her. She brings an incredible energy to the show. She isn’t a judge for hire, which a lot of people are nowadays. She loves the show and is really interested in the mentoring aspect of the show,” Cowell explains.  

“She’s really fun to be around, although I get why she’s called Scary!” he adds.

“Louis brings madness to the show. He’s a nutcase and he has a very different view of the world than I do. But that’s what I find interesting about Louis; he’s an optimist, whereas I can be a bit cynical. But he loves music. He loves doing the show; I mean, if he had a tail he’d be wagging it,” Cowell said.

“And the one thing you forget about Louis is that he is a really good manager. I mean he’s sold over 100 million records - you don’t do that with luck - you do it because you’re smart. And I think sometimes he tries to hide the fact that he is smart and cunning. Then there are times when I’m sitting there thinking, I have no idea why you’re sitting here next to me. So that’s our relationship.”

The show titled the X Factor has Simon Cowell and several other judges on it. It judges new talent in the field and gives the ordinary people a chance to go straight to the top. Simon is known for his brutal honesty and he speaks out loud. This exercise in radical honesty makes both friends and enemies. 

 

Some have called Simon an arrogant and coldhearted person, but he is probably being cruel to be kind in the right measure. And that is a very good sign. To tell the truth after all is very therapeutic.
