Kanye West Not In Talks To Join ‘American Idol’

Despite rumors circulating that Kanye West has been in talks to join the revamp of ‘American Idol’, his team has denied those reports and stated the rapper is not in discussions with anyone for the show.

Via TMZ:

Kanye West is not in discussions with NBC or anyone else about doing a re-boot of “American Idol” … contrary to reports.

Reports are surfacing NBC and producers are chomping at the bit to bring Kanye on as host, and discussions are underway. Not true.

Sources close to Kanye and with direct knowledge tell us … “There is no conversation with Kanye West to join ‘American Idol’ or any other show for that matter.

There’s been a buzz NBC might bring the show back, but not with Yeezy.

Kanye would actually be perfect for a show like ‘American Idol’. He’s clearly very opinionated and never afraid  to speak his mind. We would definitely be entertained if he ever came in as a judge.
