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.”
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.
