Just in case you were wondering… Being mean pays. Seriously, if you don’t believe us, just ask Simon Cowell, whose income is a truly staggering $208,000…PER DAY! With all that cash, you’d think he could do himself up a little bit nicer, right? Like, why the stretchy-black v-neck tees all the time, Simon? Guess when you’re that rich, you’ve got nothing to prove to anyone.
Due to Simon’s retaining ownership over several hit TV shows, including The X-Factor and America’s Got Talent, as well as some multi-million dollar wheeling and dealing over the past few years, he raked in $52.4 million dollars, just in nine months of 2009. The grumpy Brit is on his way to becoming a billionaire within the next six years!
