London: Simon Cowell has declared that he is not gay and insists he is not worried by rumours about his sexuality.

Cowell told Radio Times that he couldn`t care less because it`s nothing to be ashamed of as he works in possibly the gayest industry in the world, the Mirror reported.

The ‘X Factor’ boss, who never married despite dating a string of beauties, claimed that it would make "no difference" to his life or career.

He said that a lot of his friends are gay, but he is not and he doesn`t even think that way any more.

The 53-year-old mogul added that it feels like an antiquated question now.
