Source: Mariah Carey PISSED Over Nicki Minaj as American Idol Judge

by at . Comments

Despite reports to the contrary yesterday, Nicki Minaj is NOT officially an American Idol judge.

According to a new source, show producers first must decide whether Randy Jackson will remain on the panel before they decide on just who sits alongside Mariah Carey.

And if it were up to Carey, that individual would most certainly not be Minaj.

TMZ says Carey hung up the phone in anger after learning of Nicki's possible hiring. She was reportedly angry over the inclusion of another female on the show, especially a female 13 years her junior.

While the Powers That Be deal with that issue, they are considering Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and/or Enrique Iglesias as either the fourth judge (if Randy stays) or the third judge (if he leaves and Minaj does, indeed, come on board).

There's also another topic of controversy about which producers are worrying: would a panel of Minaj, Jackson and Carey be a turnoff to middle America?

Hey, we aren't the ones asking. We're just relaying the show's concerns and questions.



There have been several good points made, but that's just my opinion. First of all, I think a country singer is a good idea. I'm not a country music fan but there are alot of them out there. I really like alot of Nicki Minaj's music but she just doesn't seem to fit the mix. However, I didn't think Steven Tyler would either (and I have been a big fan of Aerosmith before alot of you were born)but I now feel I was totally wrong on that. I thought he was terrific. Guess when it's all said and done, I'm rooting what was he referred to...."the weirdo"....that very talented Adam Lambert.


Nicki is tha bomb, but I don't think she should be a judge. I think they need people that have more experience and music fans (not that Nicki don't have alot of fans), but most of her fans just like her style, her attitude, her ass n boobs, n the affiliation with young money. If they only want ratings, then she'll be perfect, but if they want to produce great singers and take the job serious then they need some one with more talent and experience.


If Nicki Minaj is a judge on A.I., I definitely would not watch that show anymore. She is a disgusting piece of trash with no talent and no credibility to judge other people as singers.


nicki minaj do her thing and sells well mariah do her thing to.but for american nicki ..i think mariah would do better.and for the adam lambert person.let him stay where hes at..weirdo..anyway at the end its suppose to be viewers choice so why are your worrying WHOS ON THE PANEL?omgosh..


Oops typo **Fair**


I am not a huge Nicki fan and can't really picture her being a good Idol judge. However I do think that Brad or Keith would be great judges. I have always thought that there should be a country singer judge because of how many country style contestants they have on there. It just seems like it would be more fare to have judges from different genres on the panel. Steven, Jennifer, and Randy was a good mix but I still think there should be a judge to represent the country singers as well. Just my opinion.


This is just a joke so don't over react, but I don't think Niki Minaj is fit to be on American Idol because she has so many different personalities. Think about it someone maybe suck but she might have her tone deaf personality on and she would be like I think you should go to Hollywood!!!!! Lol jk, but I like Niki Minaj I just don't think she's the right judge.


Isn't she the one who mocked TV "censoring" by giving the finger at the Super Bowl...kind of a loose cannon to be putting in prime time IMHO.


This is not a race issue. Remember Mariah is bi-racial. This is not a hate issue. This is an issue of having the credentials to become a judge. As much as some of you may like her, she doesn't have those credentials. Merely "selling" does not qualify her to judge talent. And by the way, to Michelle, you aren't getting paid either.


Who's Nicki Minaj??????????????
