X Factor boss says he hates shopping
Simon Cowell says rumours he’s gay are rubbish.
If people think he moves in ‘an effeminate’ graceful way, it’s simply because his mum is a graceful former dancer.
‘It’s probably my mother’s influence,’ he says. (He’d be a brilliant celebrity contestant for Strictly Come Dancing!)
The 48-year-old, who hates shopping but likes to look good, insists there’d be no reason for him to disguise his sexuality.
‘If I was, why hide it?’ he tells the Daily Mail, ‘It’s not as if the music business would be an odd place for a gay man to work.
‘Vain? Yeah, I am. But to be honest with you, I can’t think of one person who is on TV who isn’t vain. It’s the nature of the beast.’
What about Louis Walsh’s accusation that he’s had pectoral implants?
‘No, absolutely not. I have not had cosmetic surgery,” he smiles. ‘I’ve had Botox, but not in an obsessive way. Then again, every guy I know who works in the City has had it now.’
