Simon Cowell is not going anywhere! In fact, he would rather ”drop dead” working than retire. The 57-year-old star – who has three-year-old son Eric with Lauren Silverman – is keen to work into his 80s or 90s because it upsets him to think he could one day fill his days by playing golf. He said: ”I’d rather drop dead at my job than retire. The idea of just playing golf makes me want to jump off a bridge. I’m going to work in my 80s or 90s if I can.” Simon is clearly expecting to live a long life and always has some vegetables on hand if he requires a snack. He said: ”Once you eat enough vegetables you start to crave them. That’s why I keep carrots on my desk.” Before becoming a big-time music mogul, the ‘X Factor’ boss worked as an estate agent in London’s Mayfair but he ”hated” the job and the company.
