Simon Cowell Still Begging Lou Reed for Susan Boyle's Rendition


Simon Cowell


Calling the move 'pathetic', the music mogul said during a radio interview, 'Well Lou, if you're listening, 'Do we have permission to put the song on next week?'

Simon Cowell has lashed out at Lou Reed for allegedly refusing permission for Scottish singer Susan Boyleto perform his "Perfect Day" anthem - branding the decision "pathetic". Boyle was left crushed and with a "heavy heart" after she was barred from covering the song on "America's Got Talent" during rehearsals for the show last week.

A representative for Reed later insisted the former Velvet Underground frontman had nothing to do with the move to stop Boyle singing his song, blaming it on a licensing glitch in the American market. But music mogul Cowell, who discovered Boyle on his "Britain's Got Talent" TV contest, refuses to believe Reed's excuse.

During an interview with BBC Radio 2, he says, "This is so petty, so pathetic. Loads of people have covered this song. This is a fantastic version. He's now saying, 'If I'd have known, I'd have given permission.' Well Lou, if you're listening, 'Do we have permission to put the song on next week?'"
