Nicki Minaj is new 'American Idol' judge



150298265_0.jpgThis is Nicki Minaj's second time on The Juice* today. This time it's for something wholesome and normal. According to Us Weekly, Minaj is joining Mariah Carey at the judge's table on the next season of American Idol. "I'm not sure the deal is completely done yet, but yes, she is definitely doing it," a source told the magazine. "A few more slight things to sign off on but it is happening." Reps for FOX and Minaj didn't comment.

So far, Nick Jonas and N.E.R.D. rapper Pharrell Williams are also being considered as judges, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Accepting a spot as judge on Idol means one of two things: you're either desperate for a comeback or you're selling out. We hope after a whole season of selling out, Minaj goes away for a while. After today's Twitter debacle, we're not too fond of this gal.
