Nicki Minaj Addresses American Idol Departure Rumors! To Leave Or Not To Leave?!

And the American Idol dramz continuezzzzz!

We assume you've all heard by now, but just in case … Idol's longest running judge — and the "dawg" himself — Randy Jackson has announced that this season will be his last, as he is parting ways with the show for good.

As the rumors of the other judges’ potential departures swirl round and round the bottomless gossip mill, Nicki Minaj sat down with Idol host Ryan Seacrest and attempted to clear the air.

She told Ryan:

"That's a million-dollar question… I have to say this all the time, but I want people to know it's genuinely from my heart. I love the people on Idol. I genuinely do. If I had to do this all over again, I would have done Idol. Because it's fun, it's laughs. It's kind of sad that what people read all the time is only when something is negative. But they don't realize that we built a family.”

She then added:

“I feel happy here and I have to thank them for giving me this chance. They could have picked anyone in the world. And they picked me. So that's all I'll say about that."

Hmmm, while that’s all really great, it’s not quite the answer we were hoping for — in fact, it’s not really an answer at all.

Guess we’ll have to wait some more on this one, folks! But if Randy is giving his goodbye now, we should assume that the other judges aren't too far behind….

    Who cares if she wants to stay? She needs to go. The show is about the singers, not her bull shit attitude and constant need for attention.

  3. 3

    End the show….all these clowns they keep trying to get is not going to work. The show ran it's coarse but they need to end in now before AI becomes more of a joke.

    Re: Kyle73 – STFU and sit down child! Nicki is the best judge since Simon left the show! Keith was nothing special, Mimi was a damn joke! Nicki kept it real she has a music major background she knows her shit, cant say the same about the others!

    MARIAH SCARY!!!!!!!!!! Your a mess. Nikki has it all. She has a way to tell you what's on her mind that many think is, "not professional." But her being, "vocal," and her choice of language is smart!!! You do not forget what, she says with her manner of communicating. Insults are needed, especially when they are correct and deserved to be addressed. And she gave you a tongue lashing that hardcore rocked. It's all true. So my question to you is why does your hair line start in the middle of your head? Your always tossing your hair around in your video's when you should be wearing a hair net. Regards……..Mike

    Sounds like she doesn't know for sure if she's being kept or being let go, but is leaning more towards probably not being asked to return. They should cancel the show in my opinion, but my guess is they will do a complete overhaul with all new judges next season.

    Nigel Lythgoe destroyed this once great show by shifting the focus off the contestants. He is the single most damaging thing involved in this jacked up equation. And Midget Mike Darnell gave him the freedom to destroy "Idol." Fox should fire all of them (and the judges) and start fresh.

    Nicki please Do NOT leave. You and Keith have been the best ever
