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.



  1. Ok, so one ridiculously rich guy is jealous of another ridiculously rich guy’s money? Wow.

  2. A lot of hue and cry considering the Geico gekko is gonna get the slot, ultimately…
