Randy Jackson has put some rumours to rest and told the world that he is leaving American Idol after 12 years being on the show.
In a statement he said the following:
“Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry.”
Jackson now want’s to focus on his company, Dream Merchant 21.
Rumours have stared flying around that Nicki Mianj is leaving American Idol.
But now she has gone on the radio with Ryan Seacrest and attempted to clear the air.
This is what she had to say:
“That’s a million-dollar question… I have to say this all the time, but I want people to know it’s genuinely from my heart. I love the people on Idol. I genuinely do. If I had to do this all over again, I would have done Idol. Because it’s fun, it’s laughs. It’s kind of sad that what people read all the time is only when something is negative. But they don’t realize that we built a family.”
“I feel happy here and I have to thank them for giving me this chance. They could have picked anyone in the world. And they picked me. So that’s all I’ll say about that.”
It really does look like American Idol producers really do want to boost the ratings!
Sources have said that to boost the rating the show is asking Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez to reportedly take to the judging seats on the show as well as Pink and Diddy!
This is what the source is saying:
“It’s been a lackluster season for Idol and everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that’s why producers are frantically working on lining up big name stars for season 14. There’s more drama going on behind the scenes of the show than on the stage, and that’s why there’s a major overhaul in the works. A telling sign was that the highlight of the season was Mariah and Nicki’s explosive feud that was leaked on the web – and that was before the season even aired. Producers have been trying to recreate that buzz ever since and it hasn’t worked – the public isn’t buying it. The judges don’t have real chemistry, and there’s no real standout contestant.”
The show has already turned into a battle zone with Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj so we wonder what it would be like with on/off ex’s on the show.
It look’s like Mariah Carey is about to give into the arguing between her and Nicki Minaj!
Sources have said that Mariah is leaving American Idol as she no longer want’s to be on the show.
This is what sources are saying:
“Mariah doesn’t want to come back, Nicki is really disrespecting her and she’s tired of trying to bite her tongue all the time… One night Nicki tried to be kind of nice, but Mariah didn’t bite, so I guess she figured screw that.”
But her decision to leave the show is not all down all down to Nicki:
“She’s done with it all. She doesn’t need the platform, and all the drama isn’t healthy for her… She’s also under fire with the producers for not being critical enough of the contestants.”
But could all this be down to a publicity stunt as Fox’s reps have not confirmed her departure.
