Simon Cowell: "Be Good To Animals"

Who would have thought the master of reality TV meanness would actually dish out this bit of advice for anyone who wants to be successful? Not that I ever thought Simon Cowell throttles animals for fun while laughing maniacally. Despite him being completely harsh towards Idol wannabes, it’s kind of…cute how he thinks it’s important to treat animals kindly. Oh gods, did I just say that?

Here’s some advice for American Idol hopefuls this season: Be kind to animals. Notoriously harsh Idol judge Simon Cowell has a soft spot for animal advocates. Cowell tells PETA, “The people I work with … [are] all animal lovers. That’s part of the criteria for judging the show, you’ve got to like animals.” Cowell opened up about his love for animals on the set of his new PETA ad, which promotes humane treatment of dogs and is due to air this summer. Cowell applies the same standards to Idol wannabes as well and says, “I once had an incident with a guy who auditioned who actually admitted that he likes killing animals. Didn’t go through.” He continues, “Everyone should love animals. If you’re good to animals, your life will be good. And my life is good because I’ve been good to animals.” Considering that Cowell raked in a reported $36 million last year and has been ranked the second-highest-paid person on TV by OK! magazine, it might be wise to heed his suggestion.

Thanks to Rochelle Regodon of PETA Philippines for the tip.
