Perhaps Britney Spears will sing "Happy Birthday" to Simon Cowell this time around.

The sharp-tongued X Factor judge, whose biting wit never ceases to amaze us, celebrates his 53rd birthday today. 

It's been a year of big X Factor buzz for Cowell leading up to his big 5-3, with plenty of rumors circulating about who would fill the final two judges' chairs on the show before the producer finally lined up Spears and Demi Lovato for the gigs.

While it's not clear just yet how the birthday boy will ring in his big day, something tells us he might be kicking it off with a new lady love.

After ending his engagement with Mezghan Husseiny earlier this year, Cowell has been spotted spending quite a bit of time with Carmen Electra (the duo was most recently seen smooching at a West Hollywood hot spot).
