Another one bites the dust…
Nicki Minaj Leaves American Idol
Via US Magazine reports:
Another seat at the American Idol judges’ table will soon be up for grabs. On the heels of Randy Jackson’s announcement that he’s leaving the show after 12 seasons — and amid rumors that producers are firing the remaining three panelists — Us Weekly hears that Nicki Minaj will not return to the competition come fall.
“It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back to Idol,” an insider tells Us, adding that the “Roman Holiday” rapper will be focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. “She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.”
Minaj, 30, joined the FOX series in 2012, alongside fellow new judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey, with whom she has an ongoing feud.
The two divas frequently clashed both on and off the air, sometimes taking their rivalry to Twitter. After one particularly heated disagreement on the May 1 episode of Idol, Minaj slammed the “Touch My Body” singer as “insecure” and “bitter.”
Having a one season deal with a sinking ship like Idol while still in the early stages of her career can not be a good thing, no matter how her team tries to spin it. Are you happy to see Nicki leave the American Idol judge’s table?
