On The Come Up: Guess Who Wants To Hire Nicki Minaj For A New Gig???

- By Bossip Staff

And the checks just keep on coming for ol’ Onika Maraj! Play on playa…

R&B sensation Nicki Minaj is in talks with Simon Cowell to be a judge on his upcoming Fox talent show “The X Factor,” Page Six has learned.

The Queens-bred star, famous for her wild and outlandish outfits and impossibly curvy figure, met with Cowell in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. A source told us, “Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She’s sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality.

“Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. ‘X Factor’ is aiming for a younger audience. Those aged 12 and over can audition, and [the English version has] launched successful artists from other genres of music than pop.

“This isn’t a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show. She fits the ideal that ‘X Factor’ will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career.”
Former Island Def Jam Music Group chairman L.A. Reid — who launched major acts including Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, the Killers, Bon Jovi, Pink, Usher, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna — was last night confirmed as one of the stars on the much-speculated-about judging panel.

Gotta give it to this young lady. Regardless of whether you like her music or not, this b*tch is gettin’ it and the opportunities are only getting bigger and better.

Sidebar: Don’t see any great new offers being shot Lil Kim’s way…just sayin’…

If Nicki was an ‘X-Factor’ judge would that make you more likely to tune in on a weekly basis??

    She should only take this job if she has nothing else going on. A position like that is for people like JLO who has nothing to do right now.

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-

    Looks to me her team is trying to convince Simon and the producers of X-Factor to make her a judge. Her buzz is dying out and her doesn’t make the lyrical ability to have relevancy. Her antics are getting old and foolish. She’s pushing 30 still idolizing a BARBIE. It’s the truth –>

      HER CAREER IS FADING TO STUPID BLACK FOLKS WHO THINK THERE IS NO TALENT IN HER. PLEZ THIS LADY HAS THE WORLD AT HER FEET RIGHT NOW. I HAVE JUST LEFT GERMANY AND MOVED TO KOREA, I AM IN THE MILITARY. THEY LOVE HER AND HER MUSIC BRINGS THEM TO THE FLOOR IN THE CLUB. THEY LOVE CHECK IT OUT
      ONLY BLACK FOLK DON’T KNOW HOW TO SUPPORT THEIR OWN NO MATTER WHAT. I HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT FOR MONTHS IN COMMENTS BECAUSE I AM ABROAD AND SEE HOW PEOPLE LOVE HER IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD.

      Nicki Minaj is honestly on her way the door and into irrelevancy. Aside from the gimmicks and caricatures, she’ll be a has-been in another year or so. Age has nothing to do with it, but she has no staying power to speak of.

    • IllLetYaFinishButUmmmmm

      Nicki Minaj is a joke! If she’s so good, why does she have to relegate herself to stage antics and multiple personalities? She’s not a smart anything, but a swagga-jackin’ no-talent caricature.

  • TooSoon

    I think it would not be a good choice for Nicki to accept this offer. If the public starts to see her too often, she will become less mysterious. In addition, nowadays if she makes the “wrong” remark about any contestant, the remark can become viral and ruin her career. I say no to this offer. She doesn’t need it.

  • Raymond

    Well at least she can promise big ratings just for her being on the show..so she needs to do it

  • black girl p

    Yep! Co-sign wid everybody who kno’s this broad aint got no kinda talent – she prolly wanna go on der so she can jack some new young ting’s swagg!!

  • PrettyLady08

    I don’t see how she is fading fast. Her music is in constant rotation. She is always on TV. She seems to have a lot of outside offers in the works right now. J/S

  • Heady Murphy

    THREW.

  • IllLetYaFinishButUmmmmm

    Actually, many artists are putting a bid on Simon’s show. With the lack of talent, she’ll be looked over for a more seasoned judge.

  • 504_MsGV

    Her hair is too cute. I love the soft look on her. She skin is flawless. That is all.

  • Stanley

    This Trini girl is blowing up!!!

  • malibu stacey

It’s not like their knockin out a lot of no: 1 artists outside their continent is it?! Also nicki can not rap – she says so much nonsense the telly tubbies sound more eloquent!! For the record lil kim is an emcee n can drop a straight 16 with no hook or a chaser!
