Sweetest Thing: Simon Cowell

Not sure if Simon has ever been connected with the words "Sweetest Thing" before, but this time he deserves it. Simon Cowell is known for being rude, mean, and pretty much an ass on TV. But I really think that he is honest and hams it up a bit for the camera. Well this story strengthens everything I have ever believed about him.

Seems that a 5 year old girl was dying of cancer and wanted one thing before she died, sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to Simon. Her parents were able to their daughter, Bethany Fenton, to meet with Simon backstage of Britain's Got Talent. She was able to sing for him and tell him a knock knock joke. Her take on it;

"Simon let me sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to him. He's so nice and I love him."

And her dad;

"The highlight of the day was meeting Simon Cowell, who was a true gentleman, joking with Bethany and listening intently as she sang to him."

Sadly just 3 days after she met Simon, Bethany lost her battle with cancer. Hats off to Simon for being classy. And our prayers for her family as they grieve the loss of their daughter.
