"I can't type fast enough. Even when I text, I'm still using two fingers...I need to learn how to type like I talk, otherwise it doesn't sound like me," Simon explained to me at Tuesday night's first live "X Factor" show.
So, if Simon were on Twitter, and if he'd been live-tweeting Tuesday night, what sort of random thoughts would have made it out of his flat-topped head and onto his TweetDeck? That's what I asked Simon backstage, and among his sample suggested "tweets" were:
"I want to go have and a cigarette"
"I wish my girls were coming on quicker"
"What was Nicole thinking with Dexter?"
As for our actual real-life conversation, Simon discussed his controversial "the talent has arrived!" statement about his girls; the contestants in the other groups that he thinks pose the biggest threat to Melanie, Rachel, and Drew; and why he thinks one of his girls can win "The X Factor" in an age when almost all reality singing champions are male.
"I know what I'm doing," he told me. Of course he did.
