“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.
