American Idol 2013: Nicki Minaj isn’t sure she wants to return! Could she be X Factor bound?

Nicki Minaj might be having fun on the American Idol judging panel right now but she has revealed that she’s not sure if she wants to commit as second year to the annual talent show.

The flamboyant singer stepped in to join the hit Fox series and joined Mariah Carey and Keith Urban in replacing Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler who stepped down in 2012. The trio joined regular judge Randy Jackson who returned for his twelfth season.

Nicki didn’t get off to the best start on the singing show though, as she and Mariah clashed from an early stage and before the series even got to air, footage was leaked online of the pair embroiled in a bitter argument during audition filming.

However, as things have progressed the relationship between both women seems to have wamred up a little and there definitely hasn’t been as much tension throughout the call back stages.

That doesn’t mean that Nicki wants to give it another shot though and she told E! news that she’s not yet ready to commit to a second run, explaining:

“I don’t know, we’ll see. See the thing is, we’re only halfway done so, I am absolutely enjoying Idol but I don’t know how I’m going to feel at the end of it.”


Meanwhile, it is not inconceivable that Minaj could end up on a British show instead of a US series. In fact she could put an end to Simon Cowell’s X Factor hunt, because last night she was totally loving her UK fans and it sounds like she’d like to spend a bit more time in London.

Some of the Pound The Alarm singer’s followers were getting very passionate about Idol, as it aired in the UK a day later than it’s US premiere and she responded to one saying:

“LOL, fuckin luv the UK yo. ”

She retweeted another fan’s message and added:

“Cuz the UK have this irritated swag that makes me crack the fuck up. If they love u, they love u. If they don’t, they don’t sugar coat!!!”

“Its like they’re so passionate when cussin ppl out. I can always picture their eyes squinting and noses scrunching up. ://// hilDaFuqlarious”
