Simon Cowell The Ultimate Narcissist?

Simon Cowell should be careful what he wishes for with news he is making contestants sign a contract to be Britain’s Got Talent that prevents them from talking about him, the judges or about the show for life.

The Mirror has the story:

The Mirror has learned of the three-page contract which is so strict contestants are banned for life from revealing that it even exists. The exhaustive terms of the agreement they must sign with Cowell’s firm Syco bar them from making “any disclosure to the press” during the show and after “termination”.

One insider who has seen the document said: “Compared to other TV show contracts, the scale and sheer number of the confidentiality clauses is highly unusual.”

Wannabes must not talk to the media about “any of the Talent… including for the avoidance of doubt Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.”

Whether those clauses would actual have legal validity is anyones guess. But it is a bit harsh considering in Australia after 30 years cabinet confidential documents are released to the public.

Also Simon when your career goes into hiatus you might be begging these people who signed the contract to talk about you. 

Though Simon Cowell must be peeved he did not think of this reality TV show that is on in Denmark where men critique women’s bodies. According to news.com.au it could be the most sexist television show ever. Interesting that the girls don’t get the opportunity to talk about the not so hot judges. Also no word on what the prize or motivation to go on the show.

Unfortunately I suspect if Cowell was a judge on a show like this women would be lining up to be contestants.

Looks like a spelling error – “Cowell’s firm Syco” should have been “Cowell’s firm Psycho”. You will be (ex) terminated!

This problem is the world’s easiest to solve. Just get David Walliams on Alan Carr Chatty Man. Ply him with a few drinks and he’ll spill the beans on Simon Cowell no problem. He’s done it before and there’s nothing stopping him from doing it again.
