Piers Morgan sits down with Parade magazine to chat.
Here’s what the 45-year-old Piers Morgan Tonight host had to share:
On what made Simon Cowell choose him as an America’s Got Talent judge: “He said he was trying to find somebody as obnoxious as him.”
On whether he and Simon are really alike: “I’m not as vain as him, physically. He has all these treatments and Botox and all. I don’t do that kind of thing. I think we’ve both got big egos. Which are always, of course, driven half by supreme self-confidence and half by supreme insecurity.”
On covering the royal wedding: “I’m planning to take the show to London the week before and do it live from there. I knew Diana very well. I had lunch with her and Prince William when he was younger. I’ve known quite a few of the royals – Charles, Camilla, and so on. So I’m in a good position to keep an inside track on all that. It’s actually quite a gift for me, I think, that it’s happening soon into my tenure.”
On his hidden talent: “I can do a very good Axl Rose impression, stripped to the waist in a bandanna, after I’ve had a few Jack Daniel’s.”
On how Simon would rank the act: “He would get me straight off the show as fast as he possibly could.”
