Wow!! We wonder if "focus on the music" is code for something else!!
In a statement, Fox said:
"Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to American Idol and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season. Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best."
We respect her decision, too, but her Barbz must be so sad!
In a season marred by crappy ratings, Nicki and Mariah butted heads all season long, but it's fitting they will leave on the same day!
