NOW Nicki Minaj Confirms Departure From American Idol

Nicki Minaj doesn’t like being one upped! Especially if it’s Mariah Carey beating her to the punch. Hot on the heels of Mariah’s official announcement that she’ll be leaving the American Idol judges panel (via her publicist!) Nicki has tendered HER resignation via twitter:

Keith Urban! It’s your turn now. We’re waiting.

ETA: FOX released this statement:

“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.”
