Simon Cowell: friend or foe?

Simon Cowell likes to berate performers.
Is this acceptable/non-acceptable? Give
your reason(s).

Reason:

1. It's painful for the performers.

So is that a reason for or against?

Simon Cowell's behavior is acceptable, because music industry professionals are equally blunt and cruel. If you want to be a professional musician, you have to be able to take extremely frank criticism.

Exactly. It's brutal honesty, is all it is.

I wish that he did our Karaoke night at my bar, I always want to get on the mic and say " that was the most horrible thing I have ever heard".

It's also acceptable because he's right most of the time.

I Simon.

He is there to judge talent, and he tells it like it is. He is actually doing them a favor by giving them an honest, straight-forward critique. I mean, I'm sure that the reason so many people think that they can sing is that none of their friends and family have the heart to tell them that they suck.

I think I tell it how it is, I'm right all of the time and I'm brutally honest.. but I get chastised for it. Simon Cowell is much, much worse. Yet I still like him.

Watching his antics makes for good tv, at least.
