Simon Cowell Bored By American Idol – Simon Cowell is always honest and forthright, he says what he feels. This time Simon is frank to admit that he is leaving American Idol because he is bored. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her show, Simon admitted that he is bored and now he cannot hide it.
Straight talking Simon told Oprah that “After awhile, you start to go on automatic pilot,” Simon has been a judge on American Idol for all 9 seasons. Now he is frank in confessing that he no longer can be fake and thus wants to leave this show. He told Oprah Winfrey that- “And there were too many times, Oprah, where I was sitting there bored, and I thought, ‘[At] the end of the day, the audience doesn’t tune in to watch me being bored. They deserve more than that. But I can’t hide it when I’m bored. I just can’t fake it.’ “
Cowell mentioned that it can be the pressure of the show which has forced him to take this decision. He said- “Maybe it’s the draining effect when you have a lot of people who depend on you … And you just become aware that a lot of people depend on you, rely on you, or you’re not giving people the time you should be giving them,” he said. “It’s almost like a guilt thing. And that does drain me.”
Cowell will be undertaking another reality show ‘X Factor’. He said that “It’s different because there’s no upper age limit … Singing groups can enter the show,” he said. “I have no idea whether it’s going to work or not, but I’ll put its success and failure on whether we can find a star.”*Sponsored Links*
