Yet Another Name Being Thrown Around For “Idol”

Hell, if I was Mariah, I’d be pissed, too.

Because the search to fill the possible 3rd (or 4th, from what you believe) chair in the American Idol judges’ panel isn’t crazy enough, yet ANOTHER name has been mentioned to join Mimi at the table… and this one is even crazier than Charlie Sheen.

Kanye West.

Yep, you read that right.

The infamous hip-hop star/Kim Kardashian attachment has reportedly been approached by Idol producers in hopes of joining their team — and Kanye’s interested. Yeah, because Kanye totally lets artists have their moment.

However, there’s one thing keeping him away from becoming a judge: massive dinero. According to TMZ, he’ll only join if he can match Mariah’s salary, which is a reported $18 million.

Also, he’s not sure if being on Idol will do much to his street cred. Seriously.

Well, it’s not stopping Nicki Minaj.

You know… stop Nicki. Stop everything. Stop this madness!
