Nicki Minaj close to signing on for 'Idol'

By Associated Press

POSTED:


NEW YORK >> 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.

If Minaj signs on, she would join Mariah Carey as a new judge on "Idol," which returns in January. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their exits from the show last month.

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.

Are you kidding me! Just what does a RAPPER know about music? RAP is just a bunch of un-audible noise.

Having Nicki Minaj judging a vocal competition is like having a squirrel judge a AKC dog show.
