Self-Promotional Puff or the Real Thing? The Man Who Is Arguably the Most Well-Known Hip-Hop Mogul in the World Says He Wants to Replace Cowell on ‘Idol’

Jul 29, 2010  •  Post A Comment

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.
