*A source tells US Weekly that Kanye West has turned down an invitation to be a judge on the next season of Fox’s “American Idol.” According to the report, the rapper feels the gig will ruin his reputation.
“He didn’t want to go that mainstream,” the source tells US. “He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.” The insider also shared that “Idol” producers also offered the job to three other stars of the music industry, Will.i.am, Sean “diddy” Combs, and Rodney Jerkins.
As Us Weekly exclusively reported last week that music’s Dr. Luke is currently in talks to become the third judge on the FOX reality competition. He would join previously announced panelists Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez.
