Whether it's wigs, multiple personalities or just plain talent, Nicki Minaj has got it in spades. Now, the rap star may help Simon Cowell look for that X factor in a new crop of aspiring young stars.
The NY Post reports that Minaj is in talks to join Simon Cowell's British import talent competition "The X Factor" as one of its star judges.
"Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent. 'X Factor' is aiming for a younger audience," a source told the paper.
Thus far, only record executive LA Reid -- the exec responsible for signing Jay-Z, Rihanna, The Killers, Justin Bieber and Kanye West -- has signed on to join the judge's panel of the show, though there are a number of big names allegedly circling the project.
According to Cowell, his former "American Idol" co-judge Paula Abdul is on the judging panel shortlist, while PEOPLE recently reported that Jessica Simpson is also a potential panel member for the show.
