Nicki Minaj To Join American Idol, As A Judge

Share This:

Nicki Minaj is slated to join next season’s American Idol as a judge… According to US Magazine and their source, Nicki has been confirmed as a judge, but the deal isn’t ‘all the way done yet’. — Either way, do you believe it will be a good or bad look for the rapstress?

I think American Idol will give Nicki the platform she’s been looking for, giving her brand more exposure but it will not bode well for her “rapping”/street cred… But she should worry, I’m sure they’ll compensate her well enough that she could purchase some street cred back. American Idol paid Mariah Carey $11 million for this forthcoming season, so I can only imagine what price tag they’d be willing to place on Onika.
