The 'Wild Ones' rapper says he has no interest in starring on a reality TV music series.

Flo Rida has denied claims he would ever join the American Idol judging panel and insists he prefers to keep his private life separate from his music career.

The 'Whistle' rapper says he has no plans to sign on to judge on any of the talent tv shows around at the minute, despite a vacant seat on the popular series following the exit of panelist Steven Tyler.

"I prefer to stay private," Flo Rida told the Daily Star, when asked whether he would consider joining the American Idol judging panel in the future.

There's a lot to know about myself and I like to keep that stuff separate from the public, he explained.

Flo Rida also admitted he is keen to work with in demand DJ and producer Calvin Harris in the future, after remixing one of the Scottish star's songs recently.

He added: "I did a remix of a Calvin track off my own back, like a bootleg, and I'm sure his camp must have heard it by now. Hopefully, Calvin will get the message."

Last month the rapper unveiled a brand new song from his upcoming album called 'Run', which notably features the vocal talents of LMFAO star RedFoo.

Flo Rida has also featured on a new track with former American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez on her single 'Goin' In', and the two unveiled their colourful music video last week.

Flo Rida released his brand new album 'Wild Ones' at the start of July.
