As the Hollywood Hell Week breaks loose tomorrow on American Idol Season 8, the most critical judge on the series granted an interview with UK Daily Mail that denies he is a raving closet queen.
In the article, he bluntly shrugged off the question about his sexuality:
Of course, there have long been rumours, which just won't go away, that Cowell is gay.
this business, if you were gay it wouldn't be a problem, would it? It
is not exactly unusual to be gay in the music business or the TV
business. It is 2009, after all. So if you are, you are; if you are
not, you are not.'
And you are not? 'I am not gay,' he says,
stubbing out his last cigarette and preparing to go back downstairs to
the Britain's Got Talent bear pit.
Oh well, let's believe him when he says he's not. We all know that this guy is known for his brutally honest commentaries on American Idol contestants and maybe he's really honest with regards to what he really is. Save for his live bitchy repartees with Idol host Ryan Seacrest on the series, I could not see any problem with his denial regarding the matter.
