American Idol Replacing Nicki Minaj
According to Us Weekly, the plan was always for Minaj to last just one season. An insider tells the publication that the rapper/singer will return to her musical career, including recording a new album to follow up Pink Friday: Roman Holiday.
But Idol isn't the only show seeing a change in staff next year. Us Weekly also reports that Shakira will be stepping down as judge on The Voice, to be replaced by a familiar face — former Voice judge Christina Aguilera.
Shakira also claimed that she needed to get back in the studio to record a new album, as well as "[getting] back to motherhood." The popular Latin crossover artist was, like Minaj, only on the show for a season. more on this story
