It seems Nicki Minaj is going to get PAID this year! The super hot rapper is reportedly 99% locked-in as one of 4 new judges on talent show American Idol. As we reported previously, Nicki Minaj will share judging duties with veteran performer Mariah Carey even though tipsters claim Mariah is STILL NOT HAPPY about Nicki being onboard.
Nicki Minaj will receive $8 million dollars plus an allowance for hair, costumes and make-up for the EASY PEASY job.
New information also reveals long-time Idol judge Randy Jackson (who is great friends with Mariah) is OUT! Randy will no longer serve as a judge for the show, but he will stay on staff with the reality competition as a music mentor to the contestants. Country singer Keith Urban will fill the third Idol chair and an unknown fourth musician will fill the fourth.
Psst! Interestingly, Kanye West and Diddy both were in the running for the judging job, but both of those deals fell through.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE AMERICAN IDOL JUDGING LINE-UP?
