According to The Hollywood Reporter, Minaj and Urban are both in the last, “just give me an extra-big dressing room and I’ll sign” round of deals for next season’s American Idol.  Mr. Nicole Kidman would reportedly take home $3 to $4 million, and Nicki would get $8 million – which means the show almost certainly can’t afford Kanye now. It was a beautiful dream while it lasted.
