Nicki Minaj Affirms American Idol Exit

Nicki Minaj had confirmed her departure from “American Idol,” just hours after former colleague Mariah Carey did the same.

“Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world!” the Cash Money Records' rapper tweeted on Thursday evening. She added, “Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!”

FOX confirmed Minaj’s departure in a statement, saying, “Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a
level of honesty and passion to ‘American Idol’ and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season. Given her extremely busy career, we understand and respect her decision and wish her the best.”

Minaj and Carey’s widely-speculated exits come two weeks after the show’s season finale, and after veteran judge Randy Jackson announced he won’t be returning for the next season.

Keith Urban isn’t expected to return, either, and some reports have said Jennifer Hudson could fill one of the vacant slots.
