Simon Cowell to buy robot body?

Jul 18 2013, 3:30am CDT | by

Simon Cowell could become the first celebrity to have a robotic body.

Surgeons estimate they will be able to transplant a human head onto a robot's body by 2050, a prospect Simon - who has previously said he wants to be cryogenically frozen after death so he can be bought back to life in the future - would no doubt be interested in.

Neuroscientist Dr. Sergio Canavero thinks Simon could even have his head transplanted onto a robot body before he dies, which could, theoretically enable him to live forever.

He told The Sun newspaper: "Is it possible that a head could be transplanted onto an entirely artificial body? I say, in the 21st century, yes.

"It will not be tomorrow, or the day after, but by 2050 artificial bodies will become an absolute certainty. This project could become a means to extend life."

Anders Sandberg of the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics, said robot bodies could also be updated as technology improves.

He said: "If you got the early version of the body you may be able to upgrade it later."

While cyborg transplants may theoretically become possible, they are unlikely to be available to most people because of the multi-million pound cost, although this would not be a problem for Simon, 53, who earned an estimated £62 million according to forbes.com.

Speaking of his wish to be cryogenically frozen, the TV mogul has said: "It's an insurance policy. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. If it does work, I'll be happy. If it's possible, and I think it will be, why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? I think it's a good idea."

Simon Cowell is Just So Very Disappointing

Oct 14 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Look, if we're being honest, Simon Cowell is kind of a gross person. He's always seemed kind of sleazy on all his shows, with his inappropriately deep v-necks and, of course, his unnecessary meanness, and when he impregnated his friend's wife, well, that was kind of a tipoff, too. But during this new interview Simon did, in which he talked about his little baby son, he really just knocked that grossness out of the ...

The Girls of Fifth Harmony Bikini Show Off Poolside in Rio

Oct 10 2014 3:04pm CDT | Source: Egotastic.com

I'm going to be straight with you. I don't watch the X-Factor. The last all-girl band I can name for you is the 16th century Celtic ladies choral ensemble. And I'm not going to take the time to learn each of these girls names in Fifth Harmony. Not because I don't care, but because more proudly so, I'm super lazy and will wait another six months to see if Simon Cowell has grown them into something sustainable. That all being confessed, it's not like ...
