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.

Diddy wouldn't know talent if it hit him in the head. Shouldn't you have to have some musical talent first....I don't know I don't watch and definitely won't with or without Diddy. I mean Diddy, really that is what you renamed yourself for the 100th name change that is what he settles on Diddy.....really??? douche

I hope the producers of A.I., and some of Diddy's "people" read these posts. People don't want Diddy to judge, and evidently he is the only one that thinks he's special.

One of the worst rappers of all time judging a fake singing contest? Why not? The little girls vote for the "dreamiest boy" while the rest of the viewers vote for the one with the best "mommy has cancer, dad's in rehab" sob story anyway. The winner will be forgotten in under 15 months. All is well in Phonyville, USA.

I think this looks like someone trying to get some PR at AI's expense, because I'm sitting with two other people and between the three of us we CAN NOT NAMWE ONE song by him. No clue. No Idol.
