American Idol's Nicki Minaj Turns Attention To New Album
It will be a busy year ahead of Nicki Minaj, with a new season of Idol and a new album both on the way.
Nicky Minaj isn’t really someone we’re used to seeing in the workaholic role, but the eccentric star has been all about the multi-tasking lately.
Minaj has recently revealed that she has indeed signed on to do another season as a judge on the American Idol panel. Additionally, Minaj is all but ready to go back into the studio for her next album, MTV News reports. While the singer/rapper/pink hair aficionado already has the direction of her next release figured out, she still hasn’t clocked in any studio time on it just yet. The reason? Miss Minaj would like to tie up all of the loose ends on her last album – the overly titled Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up. That’s certainly a mouthful. The singer revealed that she will be shooting and releasing a video for her collaboration with Lil’ Wayne, High School, before moving on to her next project. You’ve got to admire that kind of work ethic.
In the same breath, Minaj also made some comments and predictions about the upcoming season of Idol: "The stars have aligned and the girls that have come to audition for us have had just had strong voices like I don't know what," Minaj told MTV News. "We narrowed it down to some great girls. I think we did a great job picking amazing voices, so I am actually hoping a girl wins this year." Whether or not that proves true, it looks like it’s going to be a big year for Nicki Minaj.
