Simon Cowell is going to be knighted for "services to the british music industry". This is rediculous imo. He has made the industry what it is today. Yeah. Total crap. And Yahoo thinks this is front page news instead of Dio passing away which is quite depressing to be fair. (its not even mentioned).

What are your views on Mr Cowell?

I searchbared and found nothing

His service to the british music industry is just being an ever growing dick head. No, he does not deserve this.

Stupidest reason to Knight someone. It's as stupid, or more stupid than Knighting Paul McCartney.

His testicles must be in tatters with the way he wears his jeans
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

He'll make everyone call him Sir Simon on the X Factor now. God help us. But I bet the Americans will lap it up on his shows over there.

After watching a fair few episodes of Britains Got Talent, I have concluded I have more knowledge of music than Simon Cowell.

Wheres my goddamn knighthood?
NO ONE EVER READS MY POSTS.

I don't think he should be knighted but I respect him as a businessman, entrepreneur and talent scout.

I picked the first one because I thought it was closer to my opinion.
#12
What exactly has he done for the music industry?

This is friggin ridiculous. services to music??? he wouldnt know good music and talent if it hit him on the head.
All the egotistical big headed idiot knows is people/bands who will make him the most money and disappear after 2 albums

What about Bruce Dickinson??? Lemmy killminster????? Ronnie James Dio(RIP). All these deserve to be knighted. Bruce not just for service to music, but services when the country was in crisis. When some plane company went bankrupt last year and left passengers stranded, Bruce dickinson used the iron maiden plane and picked up stranded passengers.

This is an outrage. Specially a day after on of heavy metals greatest pioneers has passed on. Dio had 50 years in music. isnt that deserving enough???

Simon cowell is just a tw*t

Yea, but people who churn out mediocre shit in other industries don't get knighted.
What makes Cowell different is that he's exploiting naive youngsters and them dumping them when they're no longer any use to him.

That makes him sound a bit like a pimp, actually.

It was Louis Walsh who sent Jedward through on the X factor not Simon. Simon Cowell's just playing the business and earning money to line his pocket, although he is really good at scouting people's image and making it the next best thing.

IMO however this does not deserve a knighthood, a knighthood is given when a person protects the country or helps the UK/commonwealth in some way. He lives in LA for gods sake!

Well, Dio was American. Can't really be knighted properly, since he's out of the Commonwealth. Only had one song, anyway.

Lemmy? For services to Speed dealers maybe, hardly to the music industry; because they really are a one-hit band, no matter how much people may argue.

Bruce Dickinson, I would be inclined to agree with, but not very heavily. Please drop your Metal Moral Indignation, I know you want more people to appreciate and respect it, but it's an outsider genre at heart, and better that way.
