Nicki Minaj has caused quite the stir this season on American Idol - from her feud with Mariah Carey, to her outrageous wardrobe, to her annoying nicknames for the contestants. Despite admitting recently that she would love to return to the show, rumor has it that Minaj is actually leaving after this season!
We recently learned that the last original judge standing, Randy Jackson would be parting ways with American Idol after this season is over, and now, rumor has it that Nicki Minaj is following in his footsteps.
According to US Weekly, an insider close to Minaj claims: “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.” However, Minaj has yet to publicly announce her departure, nor has the show commented on the rumor.
Ironically, some headlines last week claimed that all four of the judges were going to be fired after this season. With Jackson’s announcement, we can’t help but wonder if there is some truth to that? I mean, after 12 seasons, we would hope that Idol would give Jackson the respect to step down instead of being fired. As for Minaj, go ahead and fire her!
Meanwhile, neither Mariah Carey nor Keith Urban have signed on for another season, but Urban recently said he would definitely do it, if given the opportunity.
Should Nicki Minaj return next season to American Idol? Or should she be fired? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.
