One person who is reportedly not too keen on the idea of Nicki Minaj finalizing a deal as a judge on American Idol is American Idol judge, Mariah Carey!
Conflicting reports on Monday said that Minaj was close to signing a deal, with others coming forward saying it’s 100% done. And those reports have lead to a new one suggesting that when Carey was told that Nicki was the top candidate, she hung up the phone!
A source close to the ‘Idol’ deal has reported that Mariah was led to believe she would be the lone female on the judges panel, and choosing Minaj to join her would be the opposite of that.
The 29 year old Minaj is 13 years Mariah Carey’s junior, and has the sort of presence that could steal a bit of the spotlight from the notorious “diva.”
