Simon Cowell

American Idol star Simon Cowell is laughing off rumors that he wants his body frozen after his death, insisting he was only joking. Simon told guests at a private dinner hosted by Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown earlier this year that he planned to have his body preserved in liquid nitrogen in the hope scientists can find a way to bring him back to life. He was quoted as saying, "I have decided to freeze myself when I die. You know, cryonics. You pay a lot of money and you get stuck in a deep freeze once you've been declared dead."Medical science is bound to work out a way of bringing us back to life in the next century or so, and I want to be available when they do. I would be doing the nation an invaluable service."But a spokesperson for Cowell says the claims were exaggerated and never meant to be taken seriously.
