Simon Cowell to Demi Lovato: 'Stay away from Niall Horan, he's pure'

Music mogul Simon Cowell can be seen teasing fellow X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato about her friendship with Niall Horan in some new backstage footage from the popular televised talent contest.

In the clip, Lovato can be seen telling Cowell that the One Direction heartthrob told her to say hello to him, to which he replies: "Keep away from him, he's pure!"

The 'Skyscraper' beauty starts grinning and explains that she's "not looking for anything", adding: "I'm not going to date anybody for a whole year. And I made that clear to him!"

When Cowell asks if she has kissed Horan, Lovato becomes embarrassed and insists that she hasn't.

During a new interview with Access Hollywood, Horan chose Lovato as his celebrity crush while the other lads earmarked the likes of Rihanna and Natalie Portman as their ideal women.
