Very interesting….so Nicki Minaj may be the new American Idol judge. An offical announcement has not been made yet, but is it a good idea??
Though Nicki Minaj joked about joining the panel a few months ago, “American Idol” execs must have taken her seriously as sources are buzzing that she’s set to join Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson on the upcoming season.
Two sources confirmed the scoop to US Weekly with one saying, “I’m not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it. A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening.” Another said, “Nicki is “100% confirmed to judge American Idol.”
The question is…Does Nicki Minaj need to do American Idol? It made sense for Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, who both needed to revive their careers. Even Mariah Carey could use a career boost. But, Nicki Minaj has already crossed over audiences, she has endorsements, is selling out tours and selling albums? Does she really need it? What do you think?
