Simon Cowell Quitting American Idol?

Simon Cowell

Rumor has it that the popular or not so popular American Idol judge, Simon Cowell, is prepping up to quit as a judge on the big time popular U.S. reality show because his schedule is too hectic.

On top of being the top judge everyone loves to hate on American Idol, Cowell also fronts Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor and heads a record label.

He says he makes up to four transatlantic flights a week just to keep up with his crazy schedule.

He tells British tabloid the Daily Mirror:

“I don’t want to come over as whiney because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs. But there is a point where I am not sure we can keep this schedule up.

“It takes longer and longer to make these shows because you have to put more into them, and I am not sure we can sustain me doing three shows a year, with the record label and the TV production company.

“Most people do one show a year and I do three and they involve a lot of travelling. One may have to go. I don’t know which one. That is the problem, I like all of them. I can’t imagine not doing Britain’s Got Talent and I can’t imagine not doing X Factor.

“But I guess America is more likely to go because I have got one year under contract. Maybe that will be the end.”

How can he give up American Idol? It would never be the same without him…Maybe he’s just saying this stuff because he wants to hear that about himself 😉
