Nicki Minaj, ‘American Idol’ Judge? Rapper Reportedly Closing Deal With Reality Competition Show
NEW YORK (AP) – Nicki Minaj sings about “Starships,” but is she a star-maker? The singer-rapper could be joining the ranks of “American Idol” judges.
A person close to Minaj said Monday the 29-year-old entertainer has been in talks to judge the FOX TV competition and that a deal is in the works. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that person was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
The Fox network said it had no comment.
Minaj — known for her colorful hairstyles, wardrobe and antics — is best known for hits like “Super Bass,” ”Starships” and “Turn Me On” with David Guetta.
