Just hours after fellow judge Mariah Carey announced her exit, Nicki Minaj also confirmed she won't be coming back to "American Idol" next season.

On Thursday (May 30), the "Starships" songstress took to her Twitter page, writing, "Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!”

Taking an opportunity to take on their issues face to face, in front of a large radio audience, Nicki Minaj went on Hot 97 to talk with DJ Peter Rosenberg on Tuesday (May 28).

Last year, the "Super Bass" singer cancelled her Summer Jam performance after the host told the crowd, "I know there’s some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. F**k that bulls**t. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop s**t.”

Continuing progress on her new flick, Nicki Minaj showed up on the set of “The Other Woman” in New York City yesterday afternoon (May 23).

The “Pink Friday” rapper donned a dark wig as she strolled around the Manhattan location in a navy blue robe in between takes.

Showing no signs of slowing down even with his recent health scares, Lil Wayne brought out all the stops at the 2013 Billboard Awards on Sunday (May 19).

The "Lollipop" rapper brought in Nicki Minaj to perform their collaboration "High School" off her Pink Friday: Roman Reload - The Re-Up album.

She’s no stranger to massive industry events, and earlier this evening Nicki Minaj paid a visit to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Sin City for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards (May 19).

The “American Idol” judge was all about hamming it up for the paparazzi as she hobnobbed with fellow attendees along the way.

Stepping out to celebrate the end of a long road, judges, alums, and fans of "American Idol" attended the Finale Results Show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday (May 16).

Having given their input to each contestant, judges Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson all showed their support.

With fellow judge and "American Idol" fixture Randy Jackson announcing his departure from the musical talent show earlier this month, a source says Nicki Minaj will be heading off in the sunset after the current season is finished.

According to a report by US Weekly on Wednesday (May 15), the "Roman Holiday" rapper will instead be working on a new album and some endorsement deals she has lined up.

She's never one to hold her tongue, and now Nicki Minaj is slamming the entire music industry in the June/July 2013 issue of Teen Vogue.

Striking a cheerleader pose for the front page shot, the "Super Bass" songstress compared the cut-throat industry to high school drama.

After earning record low ratings this season, the producers of "American Idol" have decided to clean house.

While keeping host Ryan Seacrest, judges Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Keith Urban have all been axed.

2:55 pm

Usually it’s the contestants who worry for their future, but it seems the judges over at “American Idol” may all be getting the axe once Season 12 is over.

An inside source claims that Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson will all get their walking papers given the show’s dwindling ratings.
