(CelebNMusic247) Kanye West negotiating to be a “American Idol” judge?
After news broke yesterday that Nicki Minaj was in talks to become a judge on American Idol, now Kanye West is joining the list of judges.
Word is, “Idol” honchos reached out to Kanye recently about filling one of the open judging spots, and apparently Kanye expressed interest.
But if Nicki and Mariah are replacing Steven and JLo, then Ye must be replacing Randy Jackson.
Word in the biz, Yeezy is still unsure about accepting the gig, but we hear that “he’s on the fence,” because he’s not sure if “A.I.” is in his wheelhouse.
The other issue in hand is money. do they have the budget to spend for Ye?
Idol is already dishing out $18 million for Mariah Carey and source are saying that “Idol” would “at least match Mariah’s salary.”
Moreover, Nicki Minaj may be a rumor, but she tweeted to her followers this hint:
Right now, Kanye may be in the forefront, but other Idol frontrunners in question are Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Enrique Iglesias
At time of press Kanye’s camp has not returned calls.
