Here’s Your Official ‘Nicki Minaj Is Done With American Idol’ Report

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 06:  Nicki Minaj attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  (Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images) "PEACE." (Maybe.)

"It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," an insider tells Us Weekly, adding that Nicki Minaj will likely segue into recording her new record and touring and endorsing the shit out of everything colored pink. "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway." On the one hand, it's an unnamed source serving up the Kraft Mac & Cheese of rumors — not a promising or impressive dish. On the other hand, it's American Idol, after another floppy season. And there have already been reports of a whole new judging panel next season. And Randy Jackson already left. Minaj is probably out. Just think about keeping Keith Urban around, Idol. Listen to Dave Holmes.
