Kanye West Is in Talks for 'American Idol', Mariah Carey Wants Lenny Kravitz


Yeezy is allegedly interested but still unsure if the show fits him, while Carey is said to be mad when learning that Nicki Minaj is close to join her as a judge.

Kanye West has joined the mix of possible "American Idol" judge. The boyfriend of reality star Kim Kardashian has reportedly expressed interest to join the reality singing competition and is said to be currently negotiating with producers to fill one of the vacant spots.

The "Heartless" hitmaker is allegedly offered at least the same amount Mariah Carey receives ($18 million a year). However, the rapper is still "on the fence" about taking the job because he's not sure if the show suits him, so TMZ says.

Meanwhile, Mariah Carey has proposed that Lenny Kravitz should be hired as another judge. "@AmericanIdol What's going on? need the info!! What about this combo? : ) if we could ever get him to do it!" she recently tweeted along with a picture of her and the rocker, who replied, "Girl, we've known each other since we were teenagers. How fun would that be?!"

As for her reaction to reports that Nicki Minaj is close to be her partner on "Idol", the "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" singer is reportedly not happy with it. Sources tell TMZ that the R&B diva was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judging panel, and the raprtress' participation will crush her expectation.

Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias have been rumored as the frontrunners for the gig as well.
