Another name has been added to the list of celebrities showing an interest in replacing Simon Cowell as a judge on Fox’s “American Idol,” People magazine reports.
Rap mogul Diddy apparently got a look at Cowell’s paycheck, according to the story, and he wants a piece of it.
“At first when people were asking me if I was interested in the job I was like no … that’s not my style,” Diddy told George Lopez on Wednesday’s “Lopez Tonight.” “But once I heard what Simon makes … [I] would love the job. I’ve got six kids. If I would get the same check Simon gets … we would have a ball.”
Diddy joins a growing list of contenders for Cowell’s spot that reportedly already includes Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Bret Michaels, Shania Twain, Chris Isaak and Harry Connick Jr.
