The word is, Diddy's gunning for Simon Cowell's position on "American Idol." "I have been fronting all this time, trying to act like I don't want that spot. [But] I spoke to Simon's business manager, and I found out how much that boy makes a week. I am praying right now to 'American Idol'," Diddy told MTV News. Here's what you had to say: Sonja Anderson commented via Facebook: "I like Diddy, but doesn't he have enough on his plate?" Diane Wilkinson wrote via Facebook: "They need someone who is an executive in the music industry."

The word is, Diddy's gunning for Simon Cowell's position on "American Idol." "I have been fronting all this time, trying to act like I don't want that spot. [But] I spoke to Simon's business manager, and I found out how much that boy makes a week. I am praying right now to 'American Idol'," Diddy told MTV News. The music mogul/fashion designer/reality-TV star urged fans to start a viral campaign to get him in good with the folks at "idol." "I want everybody to get on Twitter, MySpace, Facebook and say that Diddy should get the Simon spot -- but for the same amount of money that Simon was getting, else it's a deal-breaker," Diddy continued. What do you think? Do you want to see Diddy at the "American Idol" judge's table?
