On Thursday, daytime chatter Ellen DeGeneres got into the spooky spirit for an all-new Halloween special, dressed as femcee Nicki Minaj. Joining Ellen was Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney, who appeared as Christina Aguilera â€” complete with her own Voice chair. So You Think You Can Dance’s tWitch, styled as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, served as guest DJ.
Thursday afternoon brought confirmation of one of the TV talent world’s worst-kept secrets: Dueling divas Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have joined Randy Jackson as the latest American Idol judge to bid au revoir to the aging talent series.
Nicki Minaj is reportedly leaving American Idol after one controversial season on the judges’ panel. Instead of returning to the Idol stage to dole out advice to aspiring popsters, the femcee intends to instead concentrate on her next album, touring and celebrity endorsements
Femcee-turned-American Idol judge Nicki Minaj is final negotiations for a role in The Other Woman, a Nick Cassavetes-directed comedy featuring Cameron Diaz.
The storyline finds Diaz as a woman who finds out that she is “the other woman” in a love triangle. She teams up with the wife (played by Leslie Mann) to get revenge on the cheating husband. Nicki is in talks to play Diaz’s thrice-wed, opinionated assistant.
Minaj previously lent her voice to a character in Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift.
