Kanye West on American Idol: Too Mainstream!

by at . Comments

Now this would have made for some serious must-see TV.

According to an Us Weekly insider, Kanye West was offered a seat at the American Idol judging table for next year, only to turn it down for the most ironic of reasons:

"He didn't want to go that mainstream," the source tells the tabloid "He didn't want to lose any street cred."

In related news: Kanye will appear on Kris Jenner's talk show this Friday.

West, it seems, has been constantly wrestling with his role as the boyfriend of Kim Kardashian, someone who lives solely for media attention.

He's fought with the paparazzi, bristled over the release of North West photos and seems to not realize just who the heck he knocked up.

American Idol, meanwhile, is reportedly set to go with a new judging panel of Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and some music executive named Lukasz Gottwald.

Which raises the question: What does one call must-not-see TV?
