It’s been weeks since we have been hearing talks that Nicki Minaj will be one of the judges on American Idol and that the deal is 99% done, so what is blocking that 1% is the obvious question.
Well, according to reports Nicki Minaj’s Pepsi deal is blocking Idol contract from going through. It all comes down to the battle of two coke brands that’s in the way of Nicki Minaj not being able to sign with Idol just yet. Pepsi vs Coca-Cola battle blocking Nicki Minaj Idol deal. How could Nicki not understand or know this would be an issue before going into talks with Idol.
You see, Pepsi sponsors Nicki’s tour but Idol is sponsored by Coca-Cola, so this is a conflicting issue for Idol in getting Nicki’s contract completed. Brain-storming on a way to work around the issue is in progress, and we can bet Idol people are working hard to get things sorted out, because Mariah doesn’t want Nicki on the show and surely news has reached Nicki, so it can only be assumed that Nicki is steamed about Mariah trying to block her rising. Idol seeing the potential for tension between Mariah and Nicki view working out that 1% kink that’s blocking Nicki’s contract in being signed as important.
And why ? well, here is what a source is saying:
“Producers want to see that drama between Nicki and Mariah Carey. It’ll make for good TV.
Thoughts ? do you really want to see Nicki Minaj on American Idol ?
