Diddy Says He Will Be ‘The Highest Paid Person On TV’ For ‘The Four’
The Four finished its first season with some huge ratings numbers and a new star in the person of Evvie McKinney. One of the things, (if not the most important thing), that brought in the viewers in the beginning was the fact that the judges were Diddy, Khaled, and Meghan Trainor. But let’s face it, the big draw is Diddy. According to him, for the next season he will become the highest paid person on television. He gives all his thanks to Katy Perry.
We all know by now the worst kept secret in Hollywood, namely that Katy Perry is getting a whopping 25 million to be on American Idol. In the clip above from the red carpet last Thursday, he says that not only will he be back but Fox is going to give him a payday even bigger than Katy’s. So, naturally he thanked her for setting the bar for reality talent judges so high.
That’s a lot of money. Like, an obscene amount of money. It’s not like Diddy needs the money but for over 25 million there are very few things I wouldn’t do. Apparently, that’s also true for Diddy. You have to wonder what the others are getting paid. On American Idol Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan aren’t being paid nearly as much as Katy. I imagine they pay poor Meghan in Arby’s coupons.
