P. Diddy phoned in to “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” Thursday morning and gave us the run down on his upcoming “Diddy-Dirty Money” tour, his performance on tonight’s “American Idol,” as well as his take on Ellen K.’s Grammy announcement mix-up, and even his now relationship with ex Jennifer Lopez.

Diddy exclaimed “I’m just excited” about his performance on tonight’s ‘Idol,’ adding, “maybe we’ll be able to go to #1 where ["Dirty Money"] belongs now.” Diddy also talked ‘Idol’ mentor and Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine, who he says served as, “a mentor through this process, this whole album, he really pushed me, and now we’re about to go on tour.”

As for Ellen K‘s Grammy mishap which Ellen explains as, “producers came to me right before and said ‘Puff Daddy’ wants to change his intro,” which P.Diddy verified “I’m not going to lie, I was a little intoxicated that night…I was sitting behind Justin Bieber …watching him flip his bangs around…and I was like ‘Maybe Puff Daddy showed up that night!’ I didn’t know what was going on…but you never know when he’ll return!”

As for his ex Jennifer Lopez, Diddy says “I’m cool with her, I’m proud of her.” And while on the topic of ‘Idol’ judges, Ryan brought up how “Jimmy Iovine said he’d love to have you on as a judge, but he says you’re too expensive,” in which Diddy characteristically responded, “he’s right!”
