US rap star, P Diddy, has made a ‘come and get me offer’ to Simon Cowell regarding the current vacant X Factor judging jobs, according to the Sun newspaper!
And with the recent sackings of both Tulisa Contostavlos from the UK version of the hit talent show, and that of Britney Spears from the US show, he may just get taken up on it.
Simon Cowell is notorious for swapping and changing his judging cast series by series, and this year is no different following the two alpha-females shocking departure.
However, we doubt he wants to be left in the same position as he was in 2012 after Destiny’s Child star, Kelly Rowland turned down the offer to renew her X Factor contract leaving the UK show desperately drafting in a string of celebrity stand in judges till Nicole Scherzinger was finally appointed the job full time.
So, with his options running low after every dismissal Cowell would probably be a fool to turn down the offer for one of America’s most well-known and popular rappers, P Diddy, to come on board.
According to the Sun newspaper, P Diddy, formally known as Puff Daddy and whose real name is Sean Combs, has expressed a public desire to fill one of the vacant positions, as long as the price was right!
He is reported as saying: “Simon’s pockets are kind of tight and I have these six kids to feed so he needs to step up.”
If P Diddy was to be given a job on the show it may increase the number of rap artists coming through, the one genre that has always been previously neglected on the talent show.
Do you think P Diddy would make a good judge, and would you like to see more rap artists taking part in the X Factor?
