  Dennis Rodman is really trying to capitalize on all the attention he’s been getting lately. After befriending North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un, the former Chicago Bulls forward now has his sights set on becoming buddies with the newly appointed Pope, according to TMZ. Rodman tells TMZ … his “people” in Rome have been in touch with the muckety mucks at the Vatican and they’re trying to arrange a sit-down with the next person to don the big funny hat. As for what Dennis wants to accomplish … he tells TMZ, “I want to be anywhere in the world that I’m needed … I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.” Rodman cites his March North Korean excursion — where he met with leader Kim Jong Un — as proof he’s the right man to hash out a peace plan … claiming he broke barriers in the DPRK nobody else could. I hope this happens, I don’t know what Rodman would have in common with the Pope but if he can befriend a dictator with Kim Jong Un’s track record
