Nicki Minaj to sign on as American Idol judge

In a move that will make perfect sense to those who have watched her ascent, Nicki Minaj is reportedly set to judge the next season of American Idol, alongside Mariah Carey.

Although the publication doing the confirming is US Weekly, a magazine known for its dubious 'sources' and 'insiders', this story actually stems from an earlier article in the Hollywood Reporter that claimed the star was set to sign off on the deal.

The Reporter pointed out that the deal may be fraught with legalities, as Minaj currently has an endorsement deal with Pepsi, whileAmerican Idol is sponsored by Coca Cola (they are enemies!). If there is any truth to the rumours–and all is clear legally–then Minaj and Carey on the same judging panel should make for some entertaining television.
