While most people are still struggling to pay rent, car payments or buy food, Simon Cowell is still making millions...even in his sleep. Simon knows how lucky he is to be so successful and is enjoying every single minute of it.
The American Idol, The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent judge says, “I happen to think that I am extraordinarily lucky. I am doing something that I am passionate about and that I enjoy doing.”
While he certainly looks forward to getting those big checks every month, one thing he's not looking forward to is his upcoming 50th birthday.
He told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “What is there to be excited about turning 50? Can’t we just pretend it is not going to happen?
“Seriously, I feel exactly the same now turning 50 as I did when I was 40 or 30. I am enjoying myself.”
He can pretend he's not excited about it, but he's still going to celebrate it with a huge bash this coming Saturday, October 3rd.
He added: “There are a couple of charities I am involved with that would appreciate a donation. But please, no presents from anyone.”
Simon has reported already spent $400,000 on the exclusive event, inviting 400 guests to his "black tie" birthday party at Hertfordshire's Wrotham Park.
Guests expected to attend include music legend Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey, actress Denise Richards, supermodel Kate Moss, Australian pop star Kylie Minogue, the judges from his talent shows and most of his recording artists.
Happy birthday Simon. You can take a bath in hundred dollar bills after your big bash...you lucky thang you.
