nugget of the week: simon cowell

last night, anderson cooper (also a huge nugget) interviewed simon cowell for a segment on 60 minutes. cowell is one smart dude, almost single-handedly making Song/BMG one of the most successful music labels in recent history. with over 75 idol artists all over the world signed to the label cowell has ingeniously discovered, quite possible, the most lucrative artist of all time: "idol." it doesn't seem to matter who they are or where they are from, "idol" as the artist has made Sony/BMG and simon cowell very, very rich and as long as people continue believe in the "american dream" that anyone can make it, there is really no end in sight. check out the interview above. its a bit long but worth it in my opinion.
