Kanye West is one interesting character. Word is that Yeezy was offered the final judge position for the forthcoming season of American Idol. However, the “New Slaves” rapper passed on the gig because it was too “mainstream” and would ruin his reputation.
The group of former American Idol contests claiming the singing competition was racist, want a minimum of $25 million. All 10 contestants — from six separate seasons– filed a lawsuit accusing producers of being “cruel and inhumane.”
Nicki Minaj’s run as a judge on American Idol is about to be over. Reportedly, the YMCMB Barbie’s first season on the reality talent show will also be her last.
While her stint as an American Idol judge has been full of drama (rumor is everyone is on the chopping block), Nicki Minaj still has plenty of positives going on. That’s the gist of the YMCMB rapper’s cover story in the June/July 2013 issue Teen Vogue.
The big question, for people who care, is whether or not Nicki Minaj, or any of her fellow judges, will be returning next season to American Idol. The YMCMB Barbie recently sat down for an interview with Ryan Seacrest and addressed her return as well as her relationship with Mariah Carey.
