  • I'm really indifferent, but I agree he's an animal lover, which is tops in my book. He also showed a really soft human side the other evening when he openly shed tears, probably because of the loss of his beloved mother. He's a hard business man, but then, he has to be!! He does know what he's talking about, but I appreciate his human side, too!

  • I only remember him from the days of American Idol. On that, he would be totally blunt. I remember when there was a dude who came in dressed like the Statue of Liberty to audition. Simon just was like "Leave. Now." He didn't even get a chance to sing, instead he just got kicked out haha

    On the whole, I like him. He was blunt and would say it like it is, and this bluntness was usually pretty funny. Sure, there were times where he could be kinda nitpicky on voices, and he would suspiciously vote through attractive girls that came in bikinis and stuff (despite their ehh voice)... However, he was a cool dude on the whole.

    I totally ship him and Paula Abdul when they were both on American Idol xD

  • I am probably option C - While I am not a fan of that genre of TV, you have to respect that Simon Cowell saw a gap in the market and created the phenomenon that is X Factor and the Got Talent shows. Millions of people get great enjoyment out of his shows so you can't argue with that.

  • O he's a major prick but he does care, he's honest because he doesn't want to give false hope to people that do genuinely suck at singing or playing. He wants the best to succeed, just like Gordan Ramsey through tough bitchy love lol. That usually ends in tears, red vein (y) faces and on occasion panic attacks 70% of the time lol.

  • Neither love nor hate. He can be rude, be he is brutally honest and that's what is needed, as the music industry is tough. So if he doesn't say it, someone else will say it in their career. He is basically indirectly preparing them for it.

  • Hate is a strong word but I don't like him, mainly because I've heard too many stories of ridicule or downright taking advantage of candidates in Britain's Got Talent. And he's responsible for One Direction so that's another negative thing.

  • He is rude as hell, but the man speaks the truth and I respect him for that. And he is the only one on britain's got Talent that can actually spot real Talent. Others are still good, but they often follow the public. So if the public likes some song from shitty singers because it's catchy, the other judges would like them too. Not Simon. If there's no Talent involved, he gives a no.

  • Very blunt indeed, but it was usually for good reason, his deliberate blunt and honest delivery served the purpose as to construct, hence "Constructive Criticism" not necessarily a means to insult

    • People who got on his televised talent show knew to expect his 'way' in which he delivers 'construct' criticism, the real question... IS: could they handle such rejection? If not, they obviously have no place in the entertainment industry

  • I like him. I find his bluntness quite funny to be honest. Even though people say he's rude or whatever, he does not give people false hope which in the long run is better. Also, I noticed some people complained that sometimes he puts some people through biased on their looks. But that IS the music industry. Mainstream pop is largely based on looks. It is what it is.
