Nicki Minaj Shares Doubts On ‘Idol’ Future / Questions Return

e6118a501fc4557b25419480960bee36 Nicki Minaj Shares Doubts On Idol Future / Questions Return

When the new season of ‘American Idol‘ swings by January 16th, all eyes will be on ‘Whip It’ Rapper Nicki Minaj and her – if reports are to be believed- unique judging style.

However, while today saw her join her fellow judges at the 2013 Winter Television Critics Association Tour to promote the show, last month saw the Rapper share her doubts on joining the show, going as far as to reveal that she is unsure if she’ll return for a second season.

Honesty below…

 

Hmm.

If Jennifer Lopez’ run on the show taught us anything, it’s that if worked to one’s strengths a platform like ‘Idol’ can be used to revive interest in almost anything.

So it’s for this reason we scratch our heads at Nicki’s ‘well, whatever’ approach to the opportunity, considering she has the most to gain from the exposure it will undoubtedly afford her.

For, if Lopez was able to use the show to nab endorsements, push singles and convince fans tickets to her world tour were worth buying, there’s no reason Minaj shouldn’t be able to use it push her brand even further into mainstream consciousness and in turn, use each episode as a commercial for her personality and new material.

Material, she’d be sort of foolish not to perform on the ‘Idol’ stage at any given opportunity.

For, if ‘Roman Reloaded’ was able to shift 1.4 million worldwide in the space of 9 months, one can only imagine the numbers she could secure with its follow up if she milks her run on ‘Idol’ for all it’s worth.

Your thoughts?

    Why do people feel the need to hate on nicki?
    -is it because your fave isn’t winning?
    -is it because you have nothing better to do
    -or is it out of pure jealousy?

    Get a f****** life and help your fave back into relevancy…

    Because Nicki is a f****** joke and we all know she was only brought on for one season to help boost ratings. There are plenty of LEGENDS in the indistry struggling to be successful again who are far more deserving of being a judge on this show. Nicki has let fame and fortune go to her head too much too soon.

    But would those legends know how to put on a great show that will earn those ratings? They want entertainment on AI, not a snooze fest. With that being said I do agree that her head has gotten extremely big once all that fame & fortune landed into her lap. I wish she was as relateable now as she was when “PF” dropped.

    LMFAO People were saying that before she released her debut album. 2 platinum albums later and she’s still winning. :)

    UMo Replied:

    LOL! As if 2 albums means anything (and the second one is struggling to sell a measly million copies domestically.) That’s still basically newbie territory. She hasn’t proven herself a mainstay with only 2 albums to her resume. Let’s see if this gimmick is still around for a 5th and 6th album…and if those albums actually sell. You Minaj fans KILL me thinking that she’s proven herself, defied the odds and has firmly established herself for the long haul. No, dear. She hasn’t. And since her second album is already seeing a steep sales decline from her first (which didn’t exactly rock the industry), I’d say that predictions of her being just a passing fad are looking more and more true.

    DeezNuts Replied:

    Why is her album the highest selling rap album of 2012?

    I’m glad youre a music expert and can tell if an artist will have longevity. I guess:
    First ever female rapper to have 7 simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 entries.
    First ever female rapper to have the highest debut sales (375,000) under the genre “Hip Hop/Rap.”
    First ever female rapper to have a multi-platinum single (Super Bass).
    First ever female rapper solo act to perform at the Grammys.
    First ever female rapper to have two albums (Pink Friday and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded) debut at #1 in the USA.
    First ever female rapper to debut an album (Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded) at #1 on the UK album charts.
    Second female rapper to ever perform at the Super Bowl .
    Second female rapper to have 8+ top 10 hits.
    The only rapper on twitter with the most followers (Currently at 14+ million followers).
    First ever female rapper to have the most Billboard Hot 100 entries (currently credited for 42 entries).
    Pink Friday was the first ever female rap album to have the most consecutive weeks (14 weeks) in the top 10.
    Fourth ever female rapper to have a #1 album in the USA, behind Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown and Eve.
    First ever female artist to rank on MTV’s annual Hottest MC List (ranked #4 in 2012)
    Starships has had 20 consecutive weeks in the top 10 under Billboard’s Hot 100.
    Starships is Nicki Minaj’s first single as the lead artist to have certifications in 7 countries.
    Super Bass joins the list of 26 other greatest selling singles of all time that have sold more than 4 million copies (but under 5 million copies) in the United States .
    Nicki Minaj was the 14th highest album-selling female artist of 2011, selling more than 1.3 million copies of Pink Friday worldwide.

    Isnt enough for an artist to achieve in 2 years to prove themself. Sorry. She def hasnt done enough to prove herself…in two years.

    This is what’s wrong with all these talent shows. I like nicki, but who cares about her being on the show or if she returns. It’s a talent show, ANYONE is capable of judging it, but the focus should be SOLEY on the talent. American idol is meant to be a platform for aspiring artists/ singers, not a platform for already famous celebrities.. Greed is bliss

    Maybe she just realises that she is not that great off a judge.. I mean she practically forced herself on to that show, she is the real reason JLO left, think back to when Nicki performed on the show and told JLO she would be a judge next year JLO was like no, and you could see the tension, so when it was said she would be joining the panel , JLO was out!

    Also be very aware that Randy Jackson has nooo love for Nicki at all, his been defending Mariah since Nicki ran her mouth, i think she knows no matter what, she ruined her image on idol and ruined her rep with some big people, as much as she is having fun on the show she must feel that after this season the bosses would not invite her back regardless of whether she is good or not

    Nicki Minaj is killing s*** and these ho’s is jealous. I love to see a sister getting to the money and anybody who don’t is just a jealous hearted hater. Lil’Kim, Eve, Missy and all the rest are struggling to get on or get back in the game. Nicki kicked the doors back open to female hip hop and now they’re all struggling to come in. BUT, It looks like Nicki has slammed the door in their faces and put up a sign that reads NO ENTRY cus Kim, Missy, and Eve have all dropped singles coming at Nicki and they all FLOPPED… LMAO!

    I like Nicki but this colorful drag queen like persona cannot last if she wants to have a career longer then 5 years. I really want her to look normal s*** so she can stick around. At 30 years old this s*** looks a mess it really does. I want the best for all the black girls doing it big Beyonce,Rihanna and Nicki Beyonce your perfect! Rihanna stop acting like your a regular bad b**** and act like your a famous bad b**** everybody can and will have something to say about s*** you do so don’t give them ammunition girl I love you! Nicki deflate your ass a bit… you will look crazy in a few years and stick to a normal looking wig boo! You don’t want to be a joke! Ciara please bow out gracefully and stop making yourself look silly. Change the name of your album that will not sound funny as s*** when them first week numbers and chart position comes out. You are not A ONE WOMAN ARMY if you cannot go gold so be humble.

    I hate Kesha. I think she’s disgusting. I dont listen to her Music nor find the need to keep up with her current events. I also dont judge the people who like her music because I understand that tastes vary.

    Haters hate Nicki Minaj. YET they listen to and critique her music, and keep up with her new singles, albums sales, current events, etc. They also pass judgement on her fans and believe they know what “real music” is. (as if musical taste does not differ from person to person)

    I dont get it. lol OH WELL.

    She lost Pepsi, she lost MAC and Barbara Walters STILL talks about her without actually acknowledging her.

    Do you even think the American Idol producers will call her back.? I’m not so sure about that. They hired Nicki as a clown while The Voice snatched credible judges like Usher and Shakira.

    BEHAVE and HUMBLE yourself Onika. Mariah is a legend, Keith is married to a legend, Randy goes on stage with legends, don’t get yourself caught up in the hype. You’re not there yet.

    Let’s pray they discover some Adam Lambert this year, so the show gets its momentum back.

    LIES! lmao Like, how are you just going to blatantly tell lies like that?

    -Nicki did NOT lose Pepsi! Because the sponsor for American Idol is CocaCola she has to wait until she’s done with Idol to endorse Pepsi.

    -Nicki did NOT lose MAC she actually got renewed and their coming out with a new shade “Nicki 2″ in Feb.

    -American Idol wanted Nicki and theyve had glowing reviews for her judging ablility. It’s VERY evident that AI needs Nicki more than Nicki needs AI.

    I just wanted to clear that up…:)
