Stern confirms Idol gossip

The controversial radio DJ is currently in discussions with TV bosses to take on Cowell’s spot on the U.S. talent show’s panel when the Brit’s contract expires in May (10).

And he insists he would love to take part in the series – if executives at TV network Fox can pay him enough money.

Speaking on his Sirius XM Radio show, Stern says, “There’s not a better job on the planet than judging that f**ing 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.”

And Stern promises he will be even more frank with the wannabe pop stars than Cowell: “I’d say, ‘Go work out!’ I’m going to be frank with these people and say, ‘You’re fat! How many fat pop stars do you see?’ I’m gonna wear a badge on my chest and say there’s a whole new sheriff in town.”

Stern’s multi-million dollar contract with Sirius expires next January (11).
