Recent Nicki Minaj gossip revolves around Mariah Carey threatening to quit the show because of her. Could Nicki get fired?  Possibly... Aint no thang for Barbie, though! I’m sure the paycheck is nice, but she’s financially stable as-is. Especially with a new album on the radar!

Nicki’s new album, Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up, is dropping November 19th. Rihanna is also releasing her new album, Unapologetic, that day.
