    For 12 milli they getting Roman, Martha, Onika Maraj, Nicki Minaj, & Harajuka Barbie. Pretty good deal since they only taking up 1 seat.

    Nicki don’t play when it comes to getting endorsements/contracts. No shade here, just let me hold 1.5 Nick 😉

    That’s not the kind of publicity that will make American idol number one again. But then again, the show is so stale that maybe nothing can.
