Simon Cowell brands Martin Gore a 'weirdo'

Nov 27 2012, 3:14am CST | by

Simon Cowell has branded Depeche Mode's Martin Gore a ''weirdo'' after the guitarist suggested someone should ''shoot'' the music mogul for ruining music.

Simon Cowell has called Depeche Mode's Martin Gore a ''weirdo'' for suggesting he should be shot.
The 51-year-old guitarist made a flippant comment during an interview last week, in which he voiced his opinion that Simon and his talent show 'The X Factor' are not good for the music industry, and joked someone should take a gun to Simon.
Martin told Music Week: ''I'm not advocating violence, but I think somebody should shoot Simon Cowell.
''What happened to bands getting together? They are very few and far between now, and the ones that do probably can't afford to get into a studio and make a record.''
But Simon has not taken the remark lightly after having received death threats in the past during his time as a judge on the UK version of the pop star search series.
The 52-year-old star took to his twitter account to blast Martin, angrily posting: ''I read Martin Gore wants to shoot me. Do you realise how weird and stupid that makes you? Go and watch the news.
''Why I am angry about weirdo Gore is a ton of people have got shot this year and people like weirdo Gore encourage this.''
Simon's Holland Park home in west London is wired up with security worth £100,000 after his stalker Leanne Zaloumis broke in earlier this year, hiding in a wardrobe.
He previously spoke about his fears fort his personal safety, saying: ''People want to kill me. It's serious and we have a lot of security now for that reason.
''My bosses told me they have been shown emails threatening my life. They said one man wanted to stab me.''

Lauren Silverman & Simon Cowell’s furry moobs are in Saint-Tropez: funny or gross?

Aug 25 2014 5:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Simon Cowell and his “girlfriend” Lauren Silverman are vacationing in Saint-Tropez with their son Eric. If you haven’t seen photos of Eric Cowell recently, OMG he looks like his father. It’s like the Cowell genes are so strong that this baby just has Simon’s face completely. No DNA test necessary. To his credit, Simon seems to be very engaged with his son, which is a good sign, I guess. I never thought I’d see the day when Simon traded in his harem for nappies, bu ...

Jeff Buckley's Definitive 'Hallelujah' Turns 20... 2 Million Cover Versions Later

Aug 24 2014 10:57am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

It's safe to say that there would have been a few million less "Hallelujah" choruses if not for Jeff Buckley's Grace album, which came out 20 years ago this week. Leonard Cohen might also be millions of dollars poorer, since it was the late Buckley's transcendent cover of Cohen's previously obscure "Hallelujah" that ultimately led to the song being a staple of ...

You’ve got to be pretty stoked when your boring husband befriends a wealthy celebrity who shows a strong interest in plowing you. In a Lifetime movie, this would end up in some kind of deadly love triangle. In real life, Simon Cowell bangs a baby in you and you tell your husband you’re leaving for the world of luxury hotels and spas and yachts. It’s like hitting the Scratchers jackpot.
