Music mogul Simon Cowell finds life as an international TV star exhausting and is now considering cutting down his schedule of filming back-to-back reality shows.
The American Idol judge spends many months a year on the show, as well as jetting over to his native place (Britain) for his other TV projects like The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.
Cowell also runs his own record label and production company in between giving reality contestants his opinion on the TV shows but the heavy workload is taking its toll on the star, and he admits, "Something may have to give", reports contactmusic.com.
"Last year was tough and I really felt it around about the end of the year. There's a lot of pressure that comes with making the shows, running the record label and running the TV production company," he said.
"I got to the point where I was doing Idol, finishing auditions, getting room service at 10 p.m. and then working for another six or seven hours on the British stuff. You do that week after week, month after month and it takes its toll on you," he added.
