Simon Cowell talks Botox, dispels gay rumors

Given how easily Simon Cowell tells “American Idol” hopefuls that they don’t “look the part” or “have the body of a pop star,” it’s no surprise that looks matter to the man. And according to a new interview in the Daily Mail, it’s his own that concern him the most.

"Vain? Yeah, I am,” Simon easily admitted. “But to be honest with you, I can't think of one person who is on TV who isn't vain. It's the nature of the beast. If you are on TV then you have a vanity, for sure. Just admit it! Why not?”

But what about Simon’s purported pectoral implants? Earlier this month Louis Walsh, his co-star from the U.K.’s hit TV show “X-Factor” claimed his pal boasted “new t*ts.” “No, absolutely not. I have not had cosmetic surgery," Simon assured the Daily Mail.

That’s not to say the grumpy “AI” judge is beyond a little youthful tweaking. “I've had Botox, but not in an obsessive way. Then again, every guy I know who works in the city has had it now."

While in the mood to dispel rumors, Simon even gave the Daily Mail the final word on the longstanding gay buzz. And — sorry, fellas — it looks like that five-year relationship with “Extra” correspondent Terri Seymour is more than just subterfuge.

"If I was (gay), why hide it? It's not as if the music business would be an odd place for a gay man to work,” Simon countered. And anyway, if I was trying to hide the fact that I was gay, I would be off playing rugby every Saturday, wouldn't I?"

Thom Stone resigned from Amy’s tour after doctors found that the secondhand heroin he inhaled on Amy’s tour bus made it into his system, reports the U.K. Sun.

“(Thom) insisted to the management team that the only way that could have happened would have been through inhaling it from Blake and Amy,” a Sun source reported

Walking out just a day after Amy’s Birmingham on-stage meltdown, Thom claimed Amy and her husband Blake Fielder-Civil (currently behind bars) were harmful to his health. “Thom just had it up to here,” the insider said. “It was a nightmare job."

Janice Dickinson cheated on Mick with model chick Though Janice Dickinson admits to hundreds of love affairs, the former supermodel’s hottest sexual encounter occurred while dating Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger. The fireworks, however, happened behind Mick’s back – with Ronnie Wood’s ex-girlfriend!

After getting the axe from the Rolling Stones axe master, the “gorgeous platinum beauty” named Pia ran to BFF Janice for consolation. “One thing led to another and before long I was crossing the line,” the News of the World recently quoted Janice as confessing.

“Pia and I ended up spending an awesome evening together — having the best sex ever. Maybe it was her grief at losing one of the greatest rock guitarists in history.”

Then again, Janice considered, “maybe she was just horny.” The Botoxed beauty said the reason doesn’t matter. “As girl-on-girl interludes go, it was hot, steamy and wild."

Dish on the fly Future Hollywood hunks don’t need fame and fortune to get lucky … or even a learner’s permit. Page Six took a revealing look at Mitchell Simons’ new tome, “Where Do Nudists Keep Their Hankies,” wherein the author states that many A-list hotties lost their virginity at alarmingly young ages. Clint Eastwood, David Duchovny, Bruce Willis? 14! Clocking at just 13 were Johnny Depp, James Caan and Jon Bon Jovi. And while no one wants to know what Don Johnson was up to at 12, the youngest, and frankly most disturbing, is Sean Connery, who admitted, “I was 8, but I can't recall with whom.”… If fans wonder why they rarely see Eminem on tour, his protégé 50 Cent says it’s a case of putting fatherhood first. According to Fiddy, Slim Shady’s 6-year-old daughter, Hailie Mathers, likes to keep her daddy close. "I've toured more than him because he has Hailie and he likes to physically be at the house,” Fiddy told MTV UK. “A lot of people don't know the reason behind him touring less — but Hailie would put boxes in front of the door thinking this would stop him going. He would fly back on a private plane after the show so he could drive her to school in the morning so for him the tour was exhausting.”
