During a chat on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, the snarky Englishman shared, "Girlfriend? We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"
As for LA Reid’s departure from “The X Factor,” Simon explained, "I'm going to miss him, because he's a good guy, but he has to go back and run the record label."
And when asked if Rihanna and/or Chris Brown are being considered for the next season, Cowell declared, "That is complete rubbish, absolute rubbish."
Earlier this week, Simon commented on the Sandy Hook Elementary Tribute- "I would say it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do on TV in my life. We made the decision and decided that we were going to introduce it like we did. And then it hits you what you are about to announce and what it is about."
"I think anybody in my position would have been the same, and I think it was much harder for the singers. For them to have to sing that lyric … it was a miracle they did it, because it really affected them. But it was the right thing to do."
