It’s no secret Hollywood’s toughest critic Simon Cowell isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind— especially when it comes to sweet, sweet (or bloody awful!) music.

But when it comes to Carmen Electra, Simon's gal pal and rumored girlfriend, the model claims he would love her new single "I Like It Loud" if he heard it.

"I think he'll like it. He's supportive," Carmen told In Touch at the Chinese Laundry by Kristin Cavallari event in NYC on Dec. 4, adding, "As first I put everything for it, but I really value our friendship and I don't know, we don't really talk about business. It’s just like I have to do this on my own, and if it works, it works. If it doesn't, then I know I tried. So far it's been pretty positive!"

The duo reportedly began dating in late October/early November when they were spotted on several dates together in LA. Carmen has since visited him on The X Factor, where he's currently mentoring groups Emblem 3 and Fifth Harmony.

Perhaps he's inspired Carmen to amp up her music career?

"This year I have really positive people and supportive people around me," she says about what influenced her decision to get back into performing. "It just changed a lot and it's just sort of rebuilding self-confidence."

"It's been so inspiring," she continues. "The support's been amazing and I'm so grateful and appreciative. That's my outlook, and I think everyone should do what they love to do, no matter what anyone says. Follow your heart, no matter what."

And it seems Carmen's following her heart just fine! In November, the former model raved about her rumored beau, Simon, saying, "I really like him. He's really cool."
