Kanye West in talks to be ‘American Idol’ judge?


Kanye West has been asked by American Idol bosses to join the judging panel, it was reported.

After the much-publicised exits of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler last year, high profile new judging talent is being sought by the show’s producers.

Rapper Nicki Minaj is heavily rumoured to also be close to signing up while Mariah Carey has already joined on an $18m contract.

Now, TMZ reports that West has expressed an interest in working on the show after being approached.

However, the hip hop star is reported to be “on the fence” about the suitability of the role, with money also being an issue.
