Are y’all ready for diva central on American Idol this season? The latest word is that Nicki Minaj will be joining Mariah as judge when Idol returns. It’s unofficially official last I heard, but of course I will keep you posted when it’s officially offish. I want to see Mimi and Nicki argue to death. Please let this happen, TV gods. (via twitter)
The rumblings have been spot-on thus far so there is no reason to believe otherwise. The latest names said to be thisclose to signing for the vacated American Idol judges seats are the adorable and talented Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams. I don’t give a shit about Pharrell, but Nick is yummers. Maybe he will wear his skinny jeans and a tuxedo T-shirt? (via twitter)
The 70-year-old Queen of Soul, Ms Aretha Franklin, has officially thrown her hat into the ring to be a judge on American Idol. I’m just lost and confused at this point. I feel like the show is irrelevant and people like Mariah and Rere are just too legendary to do this gig; it’s sloppy seconds and they don’t need it. Lord knows, Mimi doesn’t need the cash.
