October 7 is Simon Cowell's birthday. Yes, even the hard-to-please American idol judge has a birthday.
Born in Brighton, England, Simon has become one of the most controversial figures on television. His blunt, abrasive, and sometimes downright rude approach on AmericanIdol and similar shows has made him an icon in his own right. Regardless of how you feel about him, I have to believe suchshows almost wouldn't be the same without him.
If someone should be brave enough to sing Happy Birthday to Simon, can you picture him saying something like, "what was that?" Or maybe, "that was absolutely abominable."
I wouldn't put it past him.
Enjoy the music!
