Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!

Minaj’s news come just hours after Mariah Carey confirmed that she would be exiting the program. The superstar songstress is now focusing on her forthcoming album and preparing to headline the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular.
Randy Jackson has also confirmed that he will no longer be a part of the program.
After Minaj made her announcement a number of her fans or “Barbies” reacted positively, tweeting that they were excited to hear she was recording more music. However, a few people had some harsh words for the rapper.
