RUMOR: NICKI MINAJ WILL NOT RETURN TO 'AMERICAN IDOL' NEXT SEASON
Rumor has it that American Idol producers do not want Nicki Minaj to return to the show next season. According to Hollywood Life, a source said being late to a live taping, being rude and not getting along with Mariah Carey has caused producers to not want her to come back next season.
The source said, "The chances of Nicki returning to the show next season are slim to none, she is such a major headache with her behavior and it's really taxing on many people with the crew. So her behavior is wearing thin on many people this season."
It also seems like fans of the show feel like the rap diva is bringing the show down. Wednesday night's episode of the show pulled in 11 million viewers -- the lowest figures for an American Idol show ever. Some fans of the show took to their Facebook page to rant about Nicki.

CHRIS BROWN SPEAKS ON DRAKE AND FRANK OCEAN
During the interview, Chris also opened up about his beef with Frank Ocean. The two got into a reported months back. He said, "Well, with the Frank Ocean situation, I'll just put it like this: It's in the past. Some stuff went down but it's whatever. It's not what people [think]," he reasoned. "It's always sensationalized and always blown outta proportion. I got respect for his music so, I'm not really trying to go back down that route. Everything for me is [about] moving forward."
On his issues with Drake, he said, "It's not entertainment for me I think it's me more being real and saying what I gotta say. I ain't out here trying to go at him. I ain't got people after him. I'm just chillin'. I have my differences and he has his. His music's still hot. I would look like the corniest dude ever if I just stood up there and got mad every time I heard [his] record [in a club]. He gon' hear me. I'm gon' hear him. *laughs* What I'm not gon' do is I'm not gon' put myself in a situation for anything to mess up my career. Focus on what it is. Focus on your music."
