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.”

Carly Rose Sonenclar is powerhouse vocalist.

The X-Factor runner-up recently did her very own interpretation of One Direction’s “Stole My Heart,” which sounds extremely different from the original version.

During her stint on the FOX reality competition, Sonenclar was known for putting her own twist on songs and this 1D track is no different.

The pint-sized singer turned an upbeat song., into a heartfelt ballad. Some One Direction fans might not be pleased with this rendition, but this particular interpretation really shows just how versatile Sonenclar is.  Additionally, Sonenclar dedicated the song to her cousins, who recently lost their father.
