Diddy

'American Idol' Is Gonna Have to PAY ME!

EXCLUSIVE

0818_diddy_vudeoIf you thought "American Idol" forked over big bucks to land Mariah Carey ... they're going to have to back up a bank truck to Diddy's front door to get him to sign on for next season.

Diddy is the latest superstar rumored to be joining the show since the departure of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez.

We spotted Diddy at JFK yesterday and while he professed his love for "Idol," he gave a very telling answer when asked how much it would cost to get him to sign on the line which is dotted.

Your move, Nigel.

Hopefully someone will teach him to close his mouth and breath out of his nose first.

Two words for AI. Tommy Mottola. You want ratings, put Mariah next to her EX- HUSBAND who is a mega producer in the music industry and KNOWS real talent when he sees it. I'd actually watch AI religiously. I'd also like to see Barry Gordy sign on. NOW THERE is two guys you can't take seriously.

He'll sign if they want him. He is always desperate for publicity and he's nowhere near as rich as he pretends to be. Yes, he's a wealthy millionaire, but he wants everyone to think he's got hundreds of millions of dollars. I don't believe for a moment he has that kind of money.

This guy is pure trash. Stopped watching AI long ago, thought about watching it again after Mariah got signed on-love her or hate her, that girl can SING and that's what the show is about-finding talent, but this guy-his career has been dead for years-guy will be a liability if he gets hired on bc his head is so darn big he might break the ceiling as he's trying to shove it in the studio.

Diddy has been giving advices and lessons for years (his reality shows) nothing new, really not interesting, his presence would never make me watch. We already know too much about him.
That would not arouse my curiosity for even a minute !

Tell you one thing, they put that %^&*() on that show they can kiss it goodbye. White America is sick of the MSM ghetto hardon they have for these people today... pushing s*** and filth all day every day. Won't ever see me watching that garbage anymore. I watched it the first 2 years, that was it. Not a one of these people are legitimate stars, they're just 'pre fab mo wood checkenstein's" meaning they're just being used and abused until the money stops coming in and then they're launched and it's back to waiting tables or whatever it was they were doing before they were plucked out and conned into thinking they'll be the next Robert Plant or what not.
