Simon Cowell defends Harry`s naked snaps

Los Angeles: Music mogul Simon Cowell says its normal for Prince Harry, a young, 27-year-old to have naked escapades in Las Vegas.

Cowell`s comments follow Harry`s naked photo scandal in which he was caught partying with a bevy of beauties in a Las Vegas hotel suite. Someone photographed him completely nude during a game of strip billiards and sold them to a US website.

But Cowell feels its normal, reports a website.

"He`s one heck of a nice guy and if I was his age I would have ended up with a few cute girls in a hotel room with my clothes off too," Cowell told a magazine.

A biography of Cowell recently revealed his own fondness for women, but he isn`t embarrassed.

"I started working in this business when I was 17, now I`m 52. If the worst I`ve done - which is to make a bit of money and s**g a few girls - I would do the last 20 years all over again," he said.
