Simon Cowell talks Paula Abdul’s firing, replacement rumors

Believe it or not, Simon Cowell is blaming himself (more specifically his big mouth) for the big shakeup at The X-Factor. Since the firing of Paula Abdul and the disappointment that has plagued Paula’s fans, Simon has felt…well, responsible because he was the one who set unreasonable expectations for the show.

Cowell told Extra, “I would’ve liked to have kept [Paula]. She was very gracious, and I said that to her. She understands it’s business; it’s never personal.”

And as far as letting go Scherzinger? He really doesn’t think she’s punching her fist through walls. “I don’t think she’s mad. I think she’s disappointed.” Well, yeah. Unfortunately it was her big mouth and her actions that got her canned.

So why in the hell did he have to shake up the roster? Cowell explains, “It’s only because I opened my big mouth and said we were going to get 20 million [viewers]. If I hadn’t said that, everybody would be saying the show was a huge success.”

And why did he decide to ONLY keep L.A. Reid? As far as Cowell is concerned, “There’s not a record executive out there who is as good as him for the job.” True. I adore Reid.

Here is what he said about potential new judges:

As for the Beyonce rumors, they are “complete nonsense.”

He would love to have Madonna but she would be “expensive” (can you imagine the salary she’d be asking for? Cripes, she is charging her fans $300 to see her live in concert)!

So what about Katy Perry? Cowell thinks she would “fun” and “feisty.”

Even though Nick Cannon pretty much shot down rumors that his wife Mariah Carey would take on the X-Factor judge role, Simon says the door is still open. He said, “I would love her. but you can’t expect someone who’s just had two kids to make the kind of commitment you would need on this show.” But oh how we would LOVE her, despite her being too legendary for the show. Wink, wink.

CONFIRMED: Paula Abdul NOT returning to X-Factor

We reported earlier this morning that Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones would not be returning to X-Factor as judge and host respectively as they had been fired. Canned. Let go. Axed. Buh-bye.

And then there was the rumor that judge Paula Abdul may not return.

Well, Abdul confirmed via her Twitter account that she will not return to the show for season two.

“Yes, it’s true; I won’t be returning to The X Factor next season. I’ve learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations…Simon & I, along with Fox & Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, & I have absolute understanding of the situation. Simon is, and will remain a dear friend of mine… and I’ve treasured my experience working this past season with my extended family at Fox and Fremantle. I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful.”

Sad, sad, sad. Poor Paula! Here’s hoping she can get herself another job soon.

Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Steve Jones unemployed by X-Factor

It seems as if things have gotten a tad nasty over at X-Factor due to what I am guessing are as a result of the horrible ratings. Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger AND Steve Jones are no longer employees over at the FOX show.

We heard last night that host Jones and judge Scherzinger would not be returning to their positions and that was confirmed. As for the Abdul news, there has not been confirmation, however it will be damn interesting to see if it is true and what will happen as a result of Abdul’s ousting, considering Paula’s popularity.

Apparently Cowell didn’t miss Abdul THAT much. It was after much contemplation that Simon decided to bring Paula back beside for X-Factor’s premiere season. He was quoted as saying, “I missed her the second she left (Idol). Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. I don’t know what it is about her, but I’ve always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she’s right. I’ve never found anyone better than her.”

Welp, his thoughts have certainly changed is the ousting is the case. Here’s hoping that next season Simon can snag up some decent judges and they can get better ratings than the measly 12.4 million they drew in.

Simon Cowell’s ex girlfriend Sinitta says he is “excessively horny”

Somehow I knew that Simon Cowell had a naughty streak in him. He wears tight t-shirts with his chest hair sprouting out. Of course he’s a little on the frisky side, but his ex-lover Sinitta is saying that Mr. Cowell is incapable of being faithful.

And get this, she also says that he is “excessively horny”. So what the eff does that mean?
