"Us Weekly" Claims Nicki Minaj's "American Idol" Deal Is All But Done
"Us Weekly" claims it's happening: NICKI MINAJ is an "American Idol" judge. But there hasn't been an official announcement yet. They say it's essentially a done deal, although she does have some paperwork to sign before it becomes official.
There was talk from other sources over the weekend that "Idol" had REAL interest in Nicki, and that hiring her might reignite the COLA WARS, because Nicki is a Pepsi girl, and Coca-Cola is a major "Idol" sponsor.
By the way, Nicki is currently being treated for "strained vocal cords," which forced her to cancel a few gigs in Europe this weekend. Apparently, she got a lot of criticism for bailing on the shows, because she LASHED OUT on Twitter. She said, "If you have anything negative to say to me, please eat [crap] and die. I am human. I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely, and needing surgery on my vocal cord. If you can't understand that, your mother's a WHORE!!!!"
She added, "I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for [an effing] HEALTH issue! That's what got me in this mess! I should've listened to the doctor! People are hitting me telling me I should've [lip-synched]. No! Then you woulda made [an effing] STORY out of that too! Kill ya [effing] self. All you do is rip people apart and when they're dead and gone you won't lose a wink of sleep. Go [eff] yourselves." (Wow. Seems like "Idol" scored a real class act!)
