American Idol newest judge Mariah Carey wants a say in who gets picked to sit by her side on the forthcoming season of Idol. Reportedly Nicki Minaj or any other woman is not on her list.
Nicki is perhaps the only name that is a serious contender since Pepsi and Coke are hashing out how they can both share the superstar. When the “Dreamlover” singer got wind of the rapper signing on she was not to pleased. Reportedly Mariah slammed down the phone on an Idol executive.
Her furor over the rapper aside Mariah will consider rocker Lenny Kravitz and she’s already alerted American Idol on Twitter.
@AmericanIdol What’s going on? need the info!! What about this combo? : ) if we could ever get him to do it!
Kravitz responded, @MariahCarey @AmericanIdol Girl, we’ve known each other since we were teenagers. How fun would that be?!
Another contender Kanye West – though that seems highly unlikely.
American Idol aside Mariah is keeping busy with her latest music video for her forthcoming album. Triumphant debut featuring Maybach Music finest Meek Mill and Rick Ross.
“Ross plays the flamboyant promoter-manager — a sort of Don King character, complete with fur coat — while Carey slips into slinky dresses for her role as ringside eye candy. Mill stars as the fighter, swinging away with Rocky-esque determination.”
