Don’t forget where you came from! Simon Cowell, 56, slams former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, 22, as “rude” for dissing 1D’s music as not “real music.” The music mogul, who created the band, thinks Zayn should reconsider his harsh words.
Simon Cowell, 59, should know by now how insanely invested One Direction‘s fans are in the group. Many of them are still smarting from Zayn Malik‘s abrupt March 2015 departure from the boy band, so it’s a little too soon to be making jokes at his expense! Now Simon is having to apologize after being bombarded with hate from 1D’s fans, who didn’t find any humor in his Nov. 2 awards show quip about not missing the 22-year-old’s presence in the group! Here’s his explanation of how it went down:
Wow. Simon Cowell, 56, could not have picked a more inappropriate time to address Zayn Malik‘s One Direction departure. The X Factor boss was being presented with an award at the Music Industry Trust Awards in London on Nov. 2 when he took to the stage and revealed that he was hammered before taking a jab at the former 1D bandmate. The worst part? The band was standing right next to him!
Simon Cowell must have a serious headache because he got a major blow to the head during The X Factor over Halloween weekend. The creator of the hit show was headbutted by Anton Stephans who was excited to be advancing on the competition show. Anton grabbed Simon’s face and went in for a headbutt/hug that ended very, very badly!
Simon Cowell is taking a seat at the America’s Got Talent table for season 11! The 56-year-old producer has quite a bit of experience hosting, and actually just revealed he first discussed joining the show with NBC five years ago, but it didn’t work out until now. But just because he’s a new dad, don’t expect a softer side than you saw on Idol!
Since Simon Cowell, 56, is the man behind One Direction, he has always been close with the boys. So after Louis Tomlinson, 23, found out he was expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth, 23, and began considering options for his child’s godfather, Simon was apparently the first person to come to mind! But it’s more than their X Factor ties that made the selection obvious, and we have EXCLUSIVELY learned the several adorable reasons Louis picked Simon!
Louis Tomlinson, 23, hasn’t known that he’s going to be a father for very long, but he’s already considering taking parenting classes, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. The One Direction singer is clearly just wants to be the best dad he can be. Aw!
