Madonna's Brother Wants to Join Idol

Madonna’s estranged brother Christopher Ciccone seems to think he’s a celebrity. He’s reportedly lobbying to get on American Idol to take Simon Cowell’s place.

He created a Facebook page called “Christopher Ciccone for American Idol” in January, and has since gotten 600 people to back him.

He told Page Six, “I think I can bring a particular kind of credibility to the show.”

Ciccone use to work with his sister Madonna as her assistant, and then went on to be a back-up dancer for her on tour. Other odd jobs included stylist, and even artistic director. “I’d be the only person sitting at the table who actually created a pop star from the beginning, and helped keep her there for 20 years,” he claimed. “I know what it takes to make it.”

Ciccone doesn’t think he has much competition either. “I think Howard Stern is a great guy, but it’s difficult to see him sitting there, with the demographic he brings to the table,” said. “And I know producers are talking to Perez Hilton, although he’s probably the only person who doesn’t realize how irrelevant he is.”

But one person Christopher is sucking up to is the newest judge, Ellen Degeneres. He told the paper, “I like Ellen. She’s got the regular-folks appeal. I really love the show. It’s become part of the American dream.”

This guy is delusional if he thinks he could be one of the judges. They’re obviously going to pick someone in the music industry who has a little credibility!
