Nicki Minaj Wants to Judge Cowell’s ‘The X Factor’

Rap phenomenon Nicki Minaj knows a thing or two about having that “X” factor that makes fans go wild. From her nictionary, to her bodacious body, to her wild and wacky fashions, Minaj has enough star quality to fill an arena and now the bizarre rapstress may lend a hand with finding the next big superstar on FOX’s “The X Factor.”

According to, Minaj met with Simon Cowell, the show’s creator and executive producer, a few weeks about discuss the possibility of her joining the show as a judge.

“Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She’s sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality,” said a source close to “Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. ‘X Factor’ is aiming for a younger audience.”

As the source also explains, the deal is still up in the air.

“This isn’t a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great for the show,” said the source. “She fits the ideal that ‘X Factor’ will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career.”

Fans shouldn’t have to wait long to see if Minaj signs on to the show. Cowell told MTV News last week that he was just days away from announcing the lineup of judges.
