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.”

Burn me at the stake if you must, but if I were being paid $10 million to sit on a judging panel I would show up bright, early and whistling “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” like a gleeful coon. I also would make it of the utmost importance to incorporate the ‘Men In Black’ dance for good measure. But my name isn’t Onika.
A hoodie and sunglasses wearing Nicki Minaj showed up nearly 15 minutes late to the first live show of ‘American Idol’ last night because she was stuck in traffic. Oh, as if.
Nicki Minaj and her interchangeable doll parts hit the pink carpet at a media event to promote her new affordable clothing and accessories collection for K-Mart at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, California on Friday (March 1). What’s your verdict on her look?
Nicki Minaj waved farewell to 2012 at Pure Nightclub inside of Ceasar’s Palace on Monday (December 31) in Las Vegas. Not to be outdone, Lil’ Kim hosted a Cisco Toast And Midnight $100 Money Drop at the #878 Elks Lodge back home in Brooklyn. Stay mad while we count this paper.
Onika recently explained what drives her as an artist and explained why she loves being a new ‘American Idol’ judge. Watch the video below!
Nicki Minaj, pictured above last week at the Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show, took to her Twitter account on Monday night (November 26) to respond to recent remarks made by former ‘American Idol’ judge Steven Tyler about the new judges’ ability to nurture new talent.
“These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death. You’re not going to get the best [out of them]. If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield,” he told MTV. “Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”
Oxtails Onika was less diplomatic in her reaction, launching into a torrent of tweets that ended with her calling Tyler a racist.
Nicki Minaj tamed down her usual fashion shenanigans by wearing a strapless highlighter lemon-lime gown by Monique Lhuillier to the American Music Awards on Sunday. The rapper paired the frock with a multicolored Charles Albert statement necklace and Kenya Michaels-esque beaten mug.
The ‘American Idol’ judge isn’t the first on the block to give the silk faille dress a twirl. ‘Modern Family’ star Julie Bowen rocked the gown at this year’s Emmy Awards just two months ago. But the first stunner to step out in the dress — in yellow — was actress Paula Patton, for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards back in January.
Mariah Carey tipped the orange carpet in a Balenciaga dress and Gucci heels on Saturday in support of husband Nick Cannon at the Nickelodeon TeenNick HALO Awards in Hollywood. Cannon created the event in 2009 to honor teenagers who are making a difference in their communities by helping and leading others.
“I’m super proud of my hubby, Mr. Nick Cannon. I think this is amazing, that he conceptualized the whole thing,” gushed Mimikins. “Really, he’s so involved in this. It’s all about giving back. That’s what the awards are all about.”
The diva-sized (and contrived for ratings if you want my opinion) feud between Mariah and fellow ‘American Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj seems to be cooling off.
