( 4UMF NEWS ) Simon Cowell Can’t Stand J. Lo:
“We would have to have a conversation afterwards, and I don’t know what we would have said,” the caustic Cowell declared about his decision to dodge any carnal delights with the temperamental Abdul.
The hookup that never happened is detailed in “Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell,” a tell-all biography of the British music mogul that paints him as snarky, self-obsessed, cruel and combative.
The Daily News acquired a copy of the 422-page book in London. It will be available May 1 in the U.S.
Author Tom Bower quotes the multimillionaire host of “The X Factor” turning thumbs down on several fellow celebrities:
* On Jennifer Lopez, now an “Idol” judge: “I’ve never met her, but I can’t stand her.”
Despite his hands-off approach with Abdul, the book details Cowell’s steamy secret affair with singer Kylie Minogue’s sister Dannii, his obsession with “X Factor” judge Cheryl Cole and his love of lap dances.
Cowell, 52, actually cooperated on the book with Bower, granting the writer interviews and access to his private jet, his California home and his yacht in the south of France.
The results likely left Cowell cringing even more than his “Idol” encounter with tone-deaf William Hung.
According to the book, Cowell once considered making the move from pop music to popsicle — negotiating a $100,000 deal with a Swiss cryogenics firm to freeze his corpse so scientists could later reanimate it.
The razor-tongued Cowell got cold feet and pulled out of his frozen future because of the possible reaction of his old flames.
“Imagine what all my ex-girlfriends would do if they just looked at my dead head!” said Cowell. “No way!”
