In 2010, the British magazine New Statesman listed Cowell at number 41 in a list of "The World's 50 Most Influential Figures."

 Simon Cowell has been a talent judge on TV shows such as Pop Idol, The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and American Idol.

In 2002, Elton John spotted Cowell at a London music conference and asked him: “When are you going to come out and admit you’re gay?”

Simon Cowell's paternal grandparents, Joseph Cowell and Esther Malinsky, were English Jews.

One of Cowell's friends was Jonathan King - jailed in 2001 for sexually assaulting five teenage boys.

Cowell later posted bail for him.

Louis Theroux told Cowell: "Word on the street is that you're gay."

On American Idol, host Ryan Seacrest told the audience that Cowell's favourite song was Village People's YMCA and his favourite club was called Manhole.

Strange how Simon Cowell alternates between being totally ruthless and overly generous:

‘I’m vulnerable,’ he says. ‘It’s not on, it’s not off, it’s somewhere in the middle. I don’t know if I will ever get married, but I am happy.’
Vulnerable? Vulnerable to what?
He admits that he financially supports some of his former girlfriends because he feels it is not fair to leave them in the lurch after they have become used to a certain lifestyle.
‘I don’t pay them off, but if you have been with someone for long enough, there is a responsibility.

'You can’t say one minute you can live this type of life and then the light goes off. I wouldn’t do it for every girl I have dated because I would be broke.’

How sad that such a creature should reach such a position of influence. I mean, what has he really done to deserve such a dubious honour?
