Simon Cowell Talks Fatherhood and ‘X-Factor’ in PARADE



Simon Cowell has his hands full these days.

His show X-Factor is back television tonight and he’s prepping for the arrival of his first child. The entrepreneur sat down with PARADE to discuss the aforementioned and much more.

Check out some snippets from his interview with Parade!

On the X-Factor‘s low ratings this season:
“It just makes you work hard. There are way too many talent shows on TV, and they all start to look the same, which is why we’ve made distinct changes, like the new Four Chair Challenge round. The only way you get our of a rut is to make the show better.”

On criticizing other people:
“I was lippy as a kid. I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. I was always getting into trouble with my parents and in school, finding things funny that shouldn’t be. I couldn’t go to weddings or church because I would just lose it.”

On becoming a father:
“I’m not brilliant with babies. I never know what to do. But [once he’s older] I think I’ll be a good dad in terms of advice. And then I’ll get to do all the things I want to do, like go to Disneyland or Universal Studios, teach him how to drive – I love all that.”

It’s back to the drawing board.

Charlie Hunnam has dropped out the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film, due to schedule complications. This comes just one month after Hunnam was announced to play the domineering ‘Christian Grey.’

Hunnam is currently working on movies  Crimson Peak, and Triple Nine, which are both in pre-production.

Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie, is based on E.L James’ widely-popular book series by the same name.
