Nicki Minaj

No Deal for 'X Factor'

3/24/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't plan on seeing Nicki Minaj at the judges table on "X Factor" -- TMZ has learned the rapper will NOT be taking a gig on the show.

Nicki Minaj No X Factor

Rumors of Minaj's participation on the show have been spreading like wildfire ... with Simon Cowell himself fanning the flames ... but sources connected to Minaj tell us she won't be a judge on the show ... adding, "There's nothing going on with [X Factor]."

Earlier this week, Cowell told reporters that many of the names rumored to be in talks with the show were most likely leaked from his own company in an effort to stir up interest in the show.

Jessica Simpson and Paula Abdul were among the rumored candidates for the judge's positions ... but so far, no word on where they stand with the show.

No way will Simon or anyone in their right mind allow or want her to be judge. She is just another one of Lil Wayne's sluts with 0 singing talent that whores her way through her career. Making it harder for a decent, educated woman, black women especially, as myself to be respected. I agree---go away ***bag.

And stop trying to be like Katy Perry. Katy is unique and has her own style, you're just trashy and nasty.

I love Nicki Minaj she is the best female rapper alive. Anyways she is on tour now so she is to busy to be a judge on The X-Factor. Anyways its confirmed that L.A. Reid is going to be a judge on the show. The other one maybe Mariah and Nicole Scherzinger but its to early to be confirmed so we will see.

Good. I didn't even know who this woman was a month ago. Unless you are a 22 year old female bar whore, you probably don't really care for her much either. Having her judge music makes about as much sense as Ellen Degeneres. Oh yeah.. she's ugly, too.

Mary best rapper alive really? you must only listen to main stream music that they play on the radio because this girl SUX at rapping big time. Lil Wayne and Drake are not great either but you will see allot of band wagon rapper groupies love them even though the talent is not great. Sad really.
