Simon Cowell reveals extraordinary lifestyle
Music mogual Simon Cowell has admitted he wants his body to be frozen after he dies, explaining it as "an insurance policy".
In an interview with GQ magazine, Cowell, 51, discussed his extraordinary lifestyle with the men's magazine.
Simon explained: "It's an insurance policy. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. But 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. I have a feeling that if I don't do it, I could regret it in 300 years."
He also revealed his morning ritual which includes watching Flinstones cartoons, while drinking a combination of elaborate smoothies.
The X Factor chief also takes a weekly cocktail of vitamins through an intravenous drip. He also swears by climbing trees, saying this week: "I climb trees daily. It's like a ritual."
His drip-feed session lasts 30 minutes and vitamin B12, magnesium and vitamin C are pumped into the star's bloodstream.
The procedure, recommended by former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue, is administered by a woman at his home or in the office.
He said: "Even when I'm having a viewing session with producers, she just sticks the needle in me and we carry on whatever we are doing.
"It's an incredibly warm feeling. You feel all the vitamins going through you. It's indescribable but very calming. Everyone I've recommended it to has absolutely loved it. One girl had two orgasms during the treatment."
Part of Cowell's morning routine is to hit the snooze button on his alarm twice before breakfast arrives.
He then takes a glass of papaya juice with lime. He said: "Tastes delicious, looks great. It looks fantastic when it's brought in in the morning. It's just the best-looking thing in the world."
He follows that with oatmeal, then tea, then three smoothies: spinach, an antioxidant and a seven-fruit super-smoothie.
Simon said: "I love to wake up in a good mood and look forward to what's coming. As soon as that tray is put in front of me, I can't wait to have it."
The sharp-tongued judge finally spends an hour watching old cartoons. The Flintstones is among his favourites.He said: "It just puts me in a good mood. It's less depressing than watching the news."
Cowell, said to be worth £300million, also revealed that he will leave all his fortune to "children and animals".
He advised: "Leave the whole lot to charity. You enjoy it while you've got it, then it's gone to good causes.
"If I was given a ton of money when I was 21, God only knows where I'd be now."
Finally, Cowell firmly ruled out children.
He said: "At my age, the reality is I wouldn't have the patience. With the schedule, the crazy hours, I don't think it would work."
