Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell
Based on unprecedented access, Sweet Revenge is the ultimate insider’s account of Simon Cowell’s jagged rise to fame.
Simon Cowell has made an international name for himself as the no-holds-barred judge on the television phenomenon, The X Factor . He’s been called mean, arrogant, brash and unapologetic, but his stinging barbs and abrasive personality have also earned him cheers from fans, a huge personal fortune, a string of exotic girlfriends and industry clout to develop his own projects.
But Cowell’s story is also one of revenge, from his failures as a frustrated young music executive in London to his explosive rivalry with Simon Fuller over the genesis of the American Idol franchise, as others have tried to plot his downfall.
With unique access to Cowell - from private jets criss-crossing the Atlantic to chartered yachts, from his new home in Los Angeles to the studio lot - bestselling author Tom Bower reveals a man who is insecure, ambitious, easily bored, vain and needy, but one who is also a loyal friend, a loving son and a relentlessly driven businessman.
Delving into backstage scandal, tabloid rumour and the cut-throat worlds of music and television, Bower leaves no stone unturned. Packed with juicy details, exclusive interviews and sensational revelations, Sweet Revenge presents an unprecedented portrait of a fascinating celebrity.
