Simon Cowell Breathes Air Can Video


Simon Cowell opened up about fatherhood and teased the new season of “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday’s “Today.” But in one unexpected moment, he also breathed in oxygen from a can. Check out the video below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Cowell co-created “AGT,” but the upcoming 11th season is the first time he’ll serve as a judge. And he’s warning his frank (and sometimes harsh) style hasn’t changed. He explains, “When you’re judging talent and they can’t sing a note in tune, I think it’s cruel to say, ‘You’re good.'”

That approach has sometimes made Cowell a hated TV personality, and he interestingly goes on to reveal that he was convinced his young son actually hated him. At least for the first six months, that is, when the first-time dad felt challenged by the prospect of bonding with a baby. “Then one day, bang, it all clicked,” says the mogul.

As for the air in a can, Cowell takes Natalie Morales backstage, where his makeup table had multiple Boost Oxygen canisters waiting for him. “We’re in L.A., the air’s not great. If I want to wake myself up,” he says, going on to demonstrate how he puts the can to his mouth and just takes a big breath in. “$500 a bottle. It’s cheap,” he cracked.

And Cowell’s other pre-show rituals might surprise you, too. Watch below!
