Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are officially stepping away from the "American Idol" judging panel. The two departure announcements were made Thursday via Twitter.
Mariah Carey's PR firm sent out this tweet, which also confirms an upcoming world tour:
Shortly after, Minaj took to Twitter to say her goodbyes and reported that she'll be putting more focus on her music career.
Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn't trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 30, 2013
Since both pop divas' "American Idol" resignations were issued on social media, it only makes sense to share some of the positive Twitter reactions.
Or, are these negative?
I don't even watch American idol and I'm kinda glad Nicki Minaj is leaving— Sebastian Bravo (@KickHisAssSebas) May 31, 2013
