Simon Cowell Quotes: The Criticising Music Judge
Simon Cowell Quotes Photo By Jonny At en.wikipedia
Here are some highly amusing Simon Cowell quotes.
‘I met someone the other night who’s 28 years old, and he hasn’t worked a day since he left college because he’s pursuing a dream he’ll never, ever realize: He thinks he’s a great singer. Actually, he’s crap.’
‘I have seen that the American Dream is a reality – and I would love to feel the British Dream is also a reality. To enable that, we have to bring back some common sense and encourage family values, a proper sense of justice and make people believe they have a decent chance to build a business or career for themselves. I see this moment as a fantastic opportunity to restore this, because I believe Britain Has Talent.’
‘I think you have to judge everything based on your personal taste. And if that means being critical, so be it. I hate political correctness. I absolutely loathe it.’
‘If you’ve got a big mouth and you’re controversial, you’re going to get attention.’
‘My attitude is, if someone’s going to criticize me, tell me to my face.’
‘Not everybody is perfect, and I don’t think we should be looking for perfect people.’
‘When I was young and we got caught pinching apples, we got a smack from the local policeman. Today if that happened he would be sued. There is a tendency to punish the victim, not the criminal. If someone broke into my house or my mum’s house, I worry that the burglar has more rights than me.’
‘Whether they run a record company or a grocery store, every boss will tell you you’re in big trouble if you’re borrowing more than you can ever afford to pay back. Delaying the pain for future generations is suicidal. We’ve got to start getting the deficit down right now, not next year.’
‘Shave off your beard and wear a dress. You would be a great female impersonator.’
‘If your lifeguard duties were as good as your singing, a lot of people would be drowning.’
‘My attitude is, if someone`s going to criticize me, tell me to my face.’
