Simon Phillip Cowell is best known for creating the franchises “The X Factor” and “Got Talent,” which have sold millions of copies worldwide. He is a music mogul, business titan, and well-known for his ‘raw’ and ‘uncut’ personality as a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ among other talent shows. The 63-year-old recently worried fans. In August 2020, the Britain’s Got Talent judge broke his back after falling from an electric bike he was testing at his home in Malibu, California.
He’s returned to the spotlight with a new look after slipping under the radar. Known for his raw, ‘unpleasant’ comments towards the contestants, fans now put him in the spotlight for his appearance… which some argue does not look good. People were more interested in Cowell’s new facial appearance than in his appearance in a video urging people to sign up for the next season of Britain’s Got Talent.
Fans were concerned that Cowell had gone too far with his plastic surgery. “Did someone put the Simon Cowell statue too close to the lights at Madame Tussauds?” one Twitter user wondered. “You really do have to question the ethics of some aesthetic practitioners if they are prepared to do that to someone,” wrote another. He resembles a waxwork from Madame Tussauds.”
“This is not Simon,” a third user stated. “The real Simon is no longer with us.” Cowell didn’t keep his previous surgeries hidden. In an interview with The Sun, he admitted, “There was a stage where I might have gone a little too far.” I saw a picture of myself from ‘before’ the other day and didn’t recognize it right away. “Eric [Simon’s son] was in fits of laughter. Enough already. There is no filler in my face anymore. Zero.”
This is not the first time fans have expressed concern about the music mogul. As previously stated, he was involved in a terrifying accident with an electric bike two years ago. He claims he was “lucky” to survive his back surgery following the bike fall. Cowell was ‘doing fine’ after a six-hour surgery and the insertion of a metal rod. “The moment I landed, I knew I’d broken my back,” he explained. “It was really, really abrupt, and it hurt.”
“Things could have gone much worse.” I almost smashed my spine to pieces when I saw the X-ray, so I wouldn’t have been able to walk.” This isn’t the first time Cowell has drawn attention to his plastic surgery on social media. In 2019, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn chastised Simon for overdoing it with injections, saying, “I think he’s had some bad Botox.” “Botox injected too far out on the side of the forehead can cause the forehead and brows to droop,” he explained.
Another aesthetic injector expert, Kristina Kitsos, criticized Simon’s decision, saying, “Simon Cowell has had too much botox in the lateral forehead, causing the sides of his brows to droop down like that.” I strongly advise my clients to start small and build on it as needed to appear rested and natural. Kitsos told Radar Online, “This is definitely a case where less would have been more.” It’s entirely up to the viewers whether Simon looks better or not, but at the end of the day, he makes the decision for his own life.
