After a season full of stunts and shows, Nicki Minaj could be the next ‘American Idol’ judge to step down from the show following Randy Jackson’s announcement that he’s exiting the series after 12 seasons.
Us Weekly quotes an inside source saying, “It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back to ‘Idol.’ She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.”
Nicki, who made a purported $12 million on the gig, is reportedly shifting gears to focus her energy on recording her next album, touring and endorsements.
Speaking to reporters this week in advance of the Fox network’s presentation to advertisers, Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said that all of ‘Idol’s’ judges were welcome back, but that “everything at this point is on the table.”
