Although Mariah inked a much better deal than Nicki ($18 Million vs $8), Nicki’s deal would also allow for a wardrobe and hair/make-up budget. The deal would have probably occurred faster had Pepsi’s sponsorship deal with Minaj, not been a conflict of interest with Idol’s Coke sponsorship. It seems the conflicts have been resolved. I guess we won’t see Minaj drinking from the infamous coke cups, we see judges with each season. We hear there should be ink on the contracts sometime today or later this week.
American Idol has been busy trying to replace rocker Steve Tyler and pop star Jennifer Lopez, as both quit the show after just two seasons.
PS - All these names these artists are giving their fans is annoying. Granted Mariah's been at it for decades - I am not plastic nor do I live to get my hair shaved and clothe people.
