Nicki Minaj Planning On Keeping Her

Nicki Minaj remains heavily secretive about her "American Idol" return during a conference call with reporters.

Each week American Idol viewers watch in suspense as contestants are voted off the show and it seems that Idol judge Nicki Minaj is also dishing out a little suspense of her own. According to MTV News, during a conference call this week the rapstress remained very secretive about a possible return to the show for its 13th season.

"Would I come back next season? I think people would rather be surprised," said Minaj, MTV New reports. "I like to save the mystery and the drama. I'd never give that away. I always say this and I mean it from the bottom of my heart, just that people behind the scenes at Idol have been a dream to work with. I'm just super grateful to have been given the opportunity."

Minaj further commented on keeping her return a secret by stating that the suspense of not knowing who the judges for an upcoming season of American Idol may be has become somewhat of a tradition for the show and a source of excitement for fans.

"I'd rather not speak about that at this time," the rapper added. "I feel like I've kind of already answered it, but I would rather not even give any insight because I kind of feel like it's exciting for people to not know who the next season's judges will be.”

On top of the addition of Nicki Minaj, American Idol also welcomed Mariah Carey and Keith Urban as new judges this season.

    Be paid weekly and earn like a boss. I just bought a great Chrysler, from earning $9844 this last 4 weeks and $10k last month. Its by far the easiest and without any doubt the most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started ten months ago, and practically, straight away got at least $81p/h! This is what I do - Epic2.com_

    in other words, she is starting early on putting a spin on her getting fired. I have seen too many headlines about this chick and how she is messing with that show. This has nothing to do with race, but i do not think the show wants someone like Nicki... they need someone like Carly Rae Jespen. After see a bunch of headlines, i dont think the show wants more bad publicity. She will be fired.

      "they need someone like Carly Rae Jespen" You mean the one-hit wonder bitch? Fuck no.

      Why the hell do you think they hired her?? To be all nice?? Of course they want bad publicity. Because there is no such thing as BAD publicity, either people are talking or they're not.

      You must be 18 or younger. In Other words...INMATURE. Bitchy has no where near the money of Mariah. Plus Nicki sounds like squidworth of Spongebob. Mariah can reach an octave that Bitchi can only dream of. Mariah is a Godess while Bitchi is a wannabe.
