After Randy Jackson, “American Idol’s last original judge, announced his departure from the show after appearing for 12 seasons, rapper and judge Nicki Minaj (pictured) is said to be exiting the show after the current season ends, according to US Weekly.
Although Minaj has not officially announced her rumored departure, she has, according to an unidentified show insider, been noncommittal about signing up for another season with the show.
The once-flagship Fox program now has ratings that are worse than last year’s. An “Idol” insider reprotedly told Us Weekly about Minaj’s plans, “It’s safe to say she isn’t coming back…. She’s okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway.” The spokesperson also mentioned that Minaj just wanted to focus on her singing career.
With Minaj’s reported departure, the show would be left with songstress Mariah Carey and Keith Urban as its judges.
During Minaj’s time on the show, she has been at odds with fellow judge Carey, with the women even resorting to unabashed name-calling on Twitter.
As far as the other two judges, Carey and Urban, mum’s the word as to whether they will return to their respective judging gigs for Season 13.

There’s never a dull moment with R&B singer Chris Brown (pictured below) who this go-round is in trouble with the city of Los Angeles for having a mural painted on a wall outside of his Hollywood Hills home (pictured above) that is terrifying the neighborhood kids, reports the L.A. Times.
Neighbors have reportedly complained in vain to Brown about the very prominent mural, which depicts giant blob-like monsters with bloodshot bulging eyes and huge fangs. So they reportedly took their gripes to local authorities.
The fine is for unpermitted and excessive signage, and the agency ordered him to remove the art within 30 days.
If Brown fails to comply with the agency’s order, the fine will go north of where it presently stands.
