There's been several rumors around that Nicki Minaj is or will soon become the next judge on American Idol. Well apparently one person wasn't so thrilled about the news. Newly, crowned Idol judge Mariah Carey was reportedly so angry when Fox called she abruptly hung up the phone. It appears, though, she was not mad about a younger woman joining the show, Minaj (29) and Carey (42), but that any woman at all was being considered. Sources told TMZ that Mariah was under the impression she would be the only woman as the show has normally been formatted.
Meanwhile, Kanye West has also allegedly entered talks to sit at the judges table. Unfortunately, the higher ups feel having an all black judges panel could lose them "Middle America" and the frontrunners are said to be Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Enrique Iglesias.
The good news for Mariah Carey is she had time between being angry to release a video for her new single "Triumphant", and if she is at all worried about another female judge being younger there is nothing to be concerned about (See Video).
