Simon Cowell reveals loathing for social media
SIMON COWELL is one parent who won’t embarrass his kid by joining Instagram.
The showbiz mogul — dad to four-year-old son Eric -says he is too old to muck around on the app and gets irate when he sees Britain’s Got Talent hopefuls come off stage and check their phones.
‘I find it boring,’ the 58-year-old said. ‘I don’t know what they are looking at. It’s fine when you are about 11, but at our age — no?’ He revealed his loathing for social media hours after crediting himself for sticking to a self-imposed mobile phone ban.
Cowell, famous for working into the early hours, realised he could no longer concentrate because of his device.
‘I literally have not been on my phone for ten months,’ he said. ‘The thing I get irritated with is when you have a meeting, everyone’s on their phone — and I was probably in that place too. You can’t concentrate.’
Explaining the benefits of being phone-free, he added: ‘It has been so good for my mental health and has absolutely made me happier.’
