Will Kanye West be the next "Idol" judge?
Kanye West has his hands full as of late, but a new rumor may create an even fuller plate for the rapper and designer. TMZ is reporting West may soon be facing America as a judge on the popular series "American Idol."
West is reportedly in talks with producers to sign on as a judge alongside Mariah Carey and another yet-to-be named judge. Names like Nicki Minaj, country crooners Keith Urban and Brad Paisley and Enrique Iglesias have all been thrown out as the possible third judge. Should he sign on, West would be earning a solid $18 million for the season, the news source reports. Although that would be a hefty pay day, a source close to the rapper reports he's not fully onboard with the idea just yet.
"He’s on the fence because he’s not sure if 'A.I.' is in his wheelhouse," the source told TMZ.
American Idol drama continues with just Carey signed on. ABC News reports a source said when Carey heard Minaj was possibly in the running to be a judge, she "hung up the phone" as she was assured by producers she would be the only woman on the panel.
