Simon Cowell King of the Entertainment World.
This is the second in the latest series of Piers Morgans compilation of interviews.
His last audience with the Prime Minister on the 14th February is a hard act to follow as they say in the profession, but this difficulty was soon overcome by the direct manner in which Cowell replied to the most personal questions which were put to him in stark contrast to the performance which the Prime Minister had given in an attempt to unveil him as a normal person.
Piers dialogue with the person he is interviewing has always impressed me. This interview with Simon Cowell who is famous both in England and America was potentially difficult as it was made quite clear that Piers was employed by Cowell.
Piers technique is to question and prod until he reveals the different sides of the personality of the interviewee, some overtly welcome the questions others are clearly nervous.
During the course of this interview it became apparent that Cowell was obviously determined to be utterly honest. He did not deny or evade questions which might have shown the sides of his character which illustrated his being a hard task master, being vain, competitive and the importance of his being a popular person.
His answers to the leading questions on these unattractive criticisms were dealt with in a direct and sincere way. He revealed that he would like to lead the life of an average person although he is above average and has all the luxuries of a very successful person who is at the top of his profession. He works long hours and is consumed by his work. He does not like to be criticised, particularly, when it is justified.
His experience of school life bored him and was virtually a total disaster. In contrast to this his family life was happy enjoying a loving relationship with his mother, father and brother.
When Cowell was 30 his first business venture failed and he went back to live with his parents.
His perseverance and strict attention to detail enabled him to recover from his setback and to achieve the success he now has in the entertainment world.
His first great triumph arose in America when his company had its first hit record there and he showed restrained emotion as he recalled his sadness on hearing of his father's death at the same time a he was trying to share with his parents the happy news.
Having recently turned 50 he said that he looked after himself with the help of the use of botox but no other surgical enhancements.
Cowell related the nature of his experiences with his ex-girl friends with whom he remained friendly after each relationship had ended and disclosed that Mezghan Hussainy who was in the audience was "the one". He gave the impression that he would like to slow down in both his business and private life to enjoy family life with "little Simons around".
There is no doubt that he is a very popular person because of the way his programmes bring pleasure and hope to those people who take part in them and enjoyment to those millions who make up his world wide audience.
His success is a good example to those who are pursuing their own careers in the entertainment industry.
Try and catch up with this programme I am sure you will enjoy it!
