Move ovah, Kardashians: Another headline-grabbing celebrity could be headed for the E! airwaves.
E! suits are keeping mum, but the Rumor Mill is working overtime about whispers that American Idol judge Nicki Minaj has scored her own docu-soap with the cable network. The reports were sparked by gossipmonger Perez Hilton, who claims that the “Moment for Life” hitmaker has a project in the works at E!.
Minaj kicked off her gig as an Idol judge last week when season-12 auditions launched in New York. Perhaps not so ironically, the show’s host, Ryan Seacrest, produces E! hit sudster Keeping Up With the Kardashians, in addition to its numerous spinoffs.
In a summer interview, Nicki chatted about the possibility of fronting her own reality show:
“That I’m going to keep a secret for now. I thought I’d never do something like that, not saying I am still. I’m still considering. But, I will say that I find the more people see, is the more they understand and then it’s the more they like you. If you only have such one-dimensional things to go off of like rumors, then you kind of never get to know the artist. When you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person. I’m not running away from it anymore. I’m just like, ‘You know what? This is my life.’”
