Simon Cowell & Carmen Electra Arrive To Judge ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

Simon Cowell must really love being a judge: he certainly does enough of it! He spent the fall as a judge on his new TV show, the US version of ‘X Factor,’ and now he’s working as a judge for ‘Britain’s Got Talent.’

I wonder if his demanding schedule is part of what derailed his engagement? Simon clearly enjoys vacations, but he works hard, too. I’d love to see him judging with Carmen Electra (she’s another ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge). Do you think Carmen would be like Paula Abdul?

Which Famous Face Is Leaving ‘The X-Factor?’

Although there’s no question that the debut of America’s X-Factor was a smash success, it seems that the show will be making some BIG changes for the upcoming season! While judges Paula Abdul, Simon CowellL.A. Reid, and Nicole Scherzinger are all expected to return, host Steve Jones is not.

As reported by, the British stud won’t be back for season two. Though no specific reason was given for his departure, Steve took to Twitter to confirm the news to his fans.

“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” tweeted Steve on Jan. 30. “Good luck to everyone on the show.”

Even though the series isn’t slated to return until the fall, I wonder if Simon will speak out about Steve getting the boot before then. Or at least drop a hint of who the replacement host might be. Only time will tell!

Simon Cowell & Jada Pinkett Smith Are Looking For DJs

Now this is a pairing I wouldn’t have guessed was in the works! ‘X Factor’ executive producer and judge Simon Cowell is teaming up with Jada Pinkett Smith for an international reality TV show that looks for… DJs. Simon announced it on twitter:

Excited to announce new DJ show. I will NOT be judging this show. Excited to be working with @jadapsmith. Stay tuned!

A search for the next big DJ. Hmmm… it’s hard for me to appreciate this because I was never into the club scene, but it could be interesting to watch. Are you going to keep an eye out for this show?

Simon Cowell Admits He & Fiancee Are Not Together

I guess this isn’t actually surprising after the pictures of ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell vacationing with another woman, but Simon has now publicly admitted that he and fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy are not together. For the most part.

“It’s quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close. I’m vulnerable. 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.”

Hmmm… Well, it’s better to slow down rather than push through with a wedding and getting married if you aren’t sure about the relationship, don’t you think?

Simon Cowell Vacations With Zeta Graff

Simon Cowell is clearly enjoying his time off after completing his first season of the US version of ‘X Factor.’ Here he is lounging on a yacht in the waters of St. Barths with British actress Zeta Graff.

This all looks fine except… where’s Simon’s fiancee, Mezhgan Hussainy? There’s been no official word that the engagement was called off, but Simon’s friends are referring to Zeta as Simon’s “date” for the two-week vacation.

I guess we’re supposed to make our own assumptions with this one.


Simon Cowell Jet-Skis His Way Into The New Year

Simon Cowell is certainly loving his holiday in the sun! The X-Factor judge was spotted in Barbados on New Year’s Day, where he not only caught some rays on the beach, but jet-skied around the water on Sunday afternoon.

With season one champ Melanie Amaro’s debut disk set to hit stores, as well as a new season of The X-Factor on the way, I think 2012 could be another big year for Simon!

Simon Cowell Attends A Fundraiser While On Vacation

While he enjoys his tropical holiday, ‘X-Factor’ star Simon Cowell is also giving back.  The good guy was spotted attending and helping out a casual fundraiser for The Hope Sanctuary.

Also in attendance was Simon’s mother, Lizzie Cundy, and singer Sinitta.  It looks like Simon did a little announcing and from the looks of this first photo – a little bidding, as well!
