Howard Stern to Idol: Pay Up!

The rumors about Howard Stern in talks to fill a judging seat on American Idol are true! The only problem is that the shock jock wants a whole lot more money than they’re offering.

Stern joked about joining the program, saying on his radio show, "There's not a better job on the planet than judging that f--king karaoke contest. It might be possible, we'll see. They'd have to pay me a ton of dough because I already make a ton of dough."

"By the way, they had it all wrong," he added. "I never said I got made an offer. I said I was in discussions to take over a show on a network.. "They got me up to $100 million a year. I'll do that. I like that. You know what? OK. $100 million to judge a karaoke contest? OK. Why not? Oprah takes every offer on the table, why shouldn't I?”

Howard kept up his usual crass attitude, saying, "If I do say so myself, I can't imagine anyone else but me replacing him. I mean, I don't know. How else are they going to make that show work? Who knows how to broadcast and who knows how to be interesting? And who's not afraid to speak their mind?”

"By the way, if I was the judge on American Idol, looks would play into the judging, too," he added, saying that his tenure would be "like The Biggest Loser and American Idol combined. I'm gonna be frank with these people."

Based on this, we do not want him on the show! Simon Cowell is opinionated, but at least he’s fair! Howard would probably ask the female contestants to take their clothes off on stage!

What do you think of Howard as a replacement?
