Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Kanye West Joining "American Idol"? Mariah Upset With Nicki Minaj?

Yeezy is allegedly in serious negotiations with FOX’s “American Idol” to be a judge. The suits at Idol have allegedly reached out to Kanye and, according to TMZ, Kanye has expressed interest.  If he takes the gig, Yeezy will reportedly ask for equal or more money than the recently added judge, Mariah Carey – who is raking in $18 million for one season! According to TMZ’s source, Kanye is “on the fence,” because he isn’t sure if “A.I.” fits with his image.

The Internet has been buzzing that Nicki Minaj was also in talks to join “American Idol” as a judge. Nicki even tweeted that she “has a surprise” for her fans, which have led many to believe that it will be the announcement that she has joined “A.I”.  Mariah Carey is rumored to be furious at the potential of Nicki joining idol.

Sources connected with “Idol” tell TMZ … “Mariah was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel. Choosing Nicki would not only crush that expectation, it would add insult to injury because Nicki (29) is a lot younger than Mariah (42).” They say Mariah hung up on the “Idol” head honchos when they told her about Nicki possibly joining the judges table.

Do you think having Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Mariah Carey as “American Idol” judges is a good move? It most certanly will help with the ratings!

    They need to cancel dat show. Frontin like the fans play a part in who wins when everyone knows they pick the winner the judges like.

  • This show sucks no matter who they bring in

  • Mariah Carey is acting really Hollywood…She needed Nicki Minaj on her record to help resurrect her career, but she is not good enough to be next to you as a Judge?

    • Joe joe

      Mariah has over 100 million sold homie resurrect her career lol thats a good 1

  • I just don’t see why they pay the Judges so much money just to sit on their asses and talk smack….Offer that kind of money to the winners instead, they are the ones who put in all the work.

    Mariah is one hell of a voice, Kanye help discover John Legend. Nicki Minaj is just some auto-tune pop cum guzzler. If she was to go through the audition process, she’s most likely have winded up in the “crazy tryouts” reruns.
