Madonna's brother desperately eyeing 'Idol' spot

New York, Mar 5 : Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone, is leaving no stone unturned to get Simon Cowell's seat as a judge on 'American Idol'.
Ciccone, who has been his sister's assistant, backup dancer, stylist and artistic director, launched a Facebook page -- "Christopher Ciccone for American Idol!" -- in January.
However, the page has drawn only 602 members, but he is no mood to give up on his pursuit.
"I think I can bring a particular kind of credibility to the show. I'd be the only person sitting at the table who actually created a pop star from the beginning, and helped keep her there for 20 years," the New York Post quoted him as saying.
"I know what it takes to make it," he added.
And, Ciccone is not afraid of any competition for the Cowell seat.
The rumoured contenders for the position include Howard Stern, Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine, Warner Music CEO Lyor Cohen and former Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola.
"I think Howard is a great guy, but it's difficult to see him sitting there, with the demographic he brings to the table," said Ciccone.
"And I know producers are talking to Perez [Hilton], although he's probably the only person who doesn't realize how irrelevant he is," he added.
Ciccone said that he hasn't yet talked to Madonna about his quest, but, "I'm sure she'd be supportive," he said.

Madonna's Brother Eyes Role as American Idol Judge
Friday March 5, 2010

MADONNA’s estranged brother has thrown himself into the ring to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol.
Christopher Ciccone — who has served as his sister’s assistant, backup dancer, stylist and artistic director — launched a Facebook page, “Christopher Ciccone for American Idol!”, in January and it has so far drawn only 602 members.
I think I can bring a particular kind of credibility to the show,” Christopher told the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column.
I’d be the only person sitting at the table who actually created a pop star from the beginning, and helped keep her there for 20 years.
I know what it takes to make it.
I think Howard Stern is a great guy, but it’s difficult to see him sitting there, with the demographic he brings to the table.
And I know producers are talking to Perez Hilton, although he’s probably the only person who doesn’t realize how irrelevant he is.
I like Ellen. She’s got the regular-folks appeal. I really love the show. It’s become part of the American dream.”

Madonna'a brother, Christopher Ciccone, is not giving up on his quest to take Simon Cowell's seat as a judge on Fox's hit "American Idol."
Ciccone at various times during his 25-year career has served as his sister's assistant, backup dancer, stylist and artistic director. He launched a Facebook page -- "Christopher Ciccone for American Idol!" -- in January, though it's so far drawn only 602 members. Still, he's not giving up.
"I think I can bring a particular kind of credibility to the show. I'd be the only person sitting at the table who actually created a pop star from the beginning, and helped keep her there for 20 years," he tells Page Six. "I know what it takes to make it."
Ciccone isn't worried about his competitors for the Cowell seat -- who are rumored to include Howard Stern, Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine, Warner Music CEO Lyor Cohen and former Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola. "I think Howard is a great guy, but it's difficult to see him sitting there, with the demographic he brings to the table," Ciccone says. "And I know producers are talking to Perez [Hilton], although he's probably the only person who doesn't realize how irrelevant he is."
Ciccone says that he hasn't yet talked to Madonna about his quest, but, "I'm sure she'd be supportive," he says. "Though I can't imagine what she's doing on 'The Marriage Ref' [Jerry Seinfeld's new NBC show, on which Madonna was a recent panelist] giving advice to married couples. I guess it's kind of ironic. Everyone has their experiences regarding marriage -- hers are maybe what not to do," he laughed.
Ciccone also thinks he'd fit in with the current judges -- even new addition Ellen DeGeneres, with whom Cowell has privately feuded. "I like Ellen," he says. "She's got the regular-folks appeal. I really love the show. It's become part of the American dream."
