The rumors surrounding the “American Idol” judging panel continue, and this time, the focus is on … Kim Kardashian? We knew that it was only a matter of time before a story came out claiming that she was trying to get her boyfriend Kanye West to join the show as a judge, and now that very story has arrived.
According to a HollywoodLife source, both Kim and Kanye think that the show could be a great move in his career:
“It’s [going to] happen man – Kanye wants to do [American Idol] and Kim want [him] to do it, too … [It isn’t] final though, but he [wants] to do it badly and Kim [wants] him to do it, and whatever [she wants,] she gets. So watch out…[Kim’s] excited though…and [she’s] pushing [Kanye] hard to do the [show.] And you know [she’s going to] be there with [him] if [it goes] right.”
So do we really believe this in any shape or form? Suffice it to say, we are skeptical with good reason in that there is no real reason for Kanye to do this show. He already makes more than $30 million a year courtesy of his music, fashion, and touring — and he’d have a hard time doing all of it while judging a competition that is not entirely in his wheelhouse. There has not exactly been much in the way of rap music shown off on the show over the years — and even though Kanye could bring a new audience to the show, we can’t see both him and Nicki Minaj (who is also rumored) taking part.
What do you think of this new report, and do you think that Kanye would be a perfect fit for the panel? To check out some more of the latest news regarding Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez, be sure and visit the link here.
