P. Diddy: I Want Simon Cowell's Paychecks

Everyone from Justin Timberlake to Jessica Simpson has been rumored to be the front-runner to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol.

And now that P. Diddy knows how much Simon was making off the show, he wants to be officially considered for the role...or seat.

“At first when people were asking me if I was interested in the job I was like no … that’s not my style,” Diddy told George Lopez on Wednesday’s Lopez Tonight.

“But once I heard what Simon makes … [I] would love the job. I’ve got six kids. If I would get the same check Simon gets … we would have a ball.”

Simon probably makes 3x more than Diddy yet Diddy is still 10x flashier than Simon. Go figure. Maybe if Diddy stopped spending all his money on parties, he'd have half of what Simon has.
