*Diddy, Diddy, Diddy is always doing, doing, doing. The man is on a roll and ain’t nobody gonna stop him. He’s currently promoting his upcoming album, “Last Train to Paris” and his new management deal with Rick Ross. But that’s not enough he says! He’s creeping up on a spot as a judge on American Idol. How fitting.
Sean “Diddy” Combs got a glance at Simon Cowell’s paycheck and hasn’t stopped drooling yet, so he’s offering his entertainment eye and sense to American Idol producers.
“I have been fronting all this time, trying to act like I don’t want that spot. [But] I spoke to Simon’s business manager, and I found out how much that boy makes a week. I am praying right now to ‘American Idol,'” Diddy told MTV News.
He really wants this job and he ain’t playin’! Diddy solicited his fans for help, telling them to make his career aspirations a huge topic online.
“I want everybody to get on Twitter, MySpace, Facebook and say that Diddy should get the Simon spot — but for the same amount of money that SImon was getting, else it’s a deal-breaker,” he said. I’m tired of being cool: That number that Simon was getting a week is ridiculous. I can’t even be cool with that. Please, can I have the job, whoever’s in charge of giving that job?” he said. “There’s no negotiating the contract. Just change the name on the check, and I’ll be there.”
