Simon Cowell is busy judging “Britain’s Got Talent”, “American Idol” and “X-Factor”.
Susan Boyle, intrigued internet viewers with tens of millions of hits after her recent vocal performance on Britain’s Got Talent, is now a wholly owned artist of Simon Inc.
Beyond his part in the Susan Boyle explosion, Simon was also on the top-rated television shows last week: this season’s first new episode of “Britain’s Got Talent,” and the latest edition of “American Idol.”
But in an interview the The Daily Mirror of London, Cowell sent a panic into hearts of Fox management by stating that he may leave his judging job on American Idol and he said he is serious. “When I signed the latest extension on ‘Idol’ through next season, it felt like that was going to be the right amount of time,” Mr. Cowell said. “It still feels right.”

Allison Iraheta’s funky outfit got more attention than her performance on “American Idol.”
The judges’ panel seemed too distracted by what she was wearing to offer much criticism of her performance. The 16-year-old rock prodigy belted the No Doubt hit “Don’t Speak” not that it mattered.
Judge Simon Cowell said Iraheta’s look resembled “something out of ‘The Addams Family.’” Her poofy red dress, black leggings, white heels and spiky magenta hair led Cowell to joke that the night’s theme must be Halloween.

In more news of the bizarre. Yes kids, Clay Aiken is a daddy. How incredibly disturbing that the mother is in her late 40′s and was artificially inseminated with his sperm. I guess he wasn’t quite ready to man-up to the plate and kick it with a woman. What was that Madonna movie? The one where she had a child with her gay BFF?? Hmm…
American Idol Clay Aiken is a dad!
The 29-year-old singer and his best friend, producer Jaymes Foster, welcomed baby boy, Parker Foster Aiken, in his home-state of North Carolina Friday morning, Aiken’s mother Faye told local TV station WRAL.
Parker Foster Aiken was born at 8:08 a.m. weighing 6 pounds, 2 ounces. He was 19 inches long.
Parker has dark hair, Faye reported.
Foster (who is reportedly in her late 40s) was artificial inseminated with Aiken’s sperm.
The BFFs live together when he’s in L.A. and he plans to be involved with parenting their child.
The crooner has consistently avoided questions about his sexuality.
“People don’t want to have that type of stuff pushed, people who are living in Omaha or in Charlotte or wherever,” Aiken told Access Hollywood in April.
“They don’t want stuff like that pushed in their face,” he added. “I don’t think that’s necessary and that’s also not what I’m here for. I mean, I went on Idol to be a singer, I went on Idol to be an entertainer and that’s what my priority is.”
