Diddy explained that he initially wasn’t interested in the position, but once he heard how much Simon Cowell made while serving as a judge on the show his thoughts changed somewhat.
“At first when people were asking me if I was interested in the job I was like no…that’s not my style,” Diddy explained. “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.”
Various reports have suggested that former American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe may return to the show this season and if he does he may possibly replace all the judges.
