Nicki Minaj may be preparing to get "X"-rated.

According to the New York Post, the Young Money star is in talks with former "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell to potentially become a judge on his upcoming music competition reality show "The X Factor."

Minaj reportedly met with Cowell last week in L.A. to discuss the possibility of her coming on board.

If the deal gets inked the pint-sized rapstress will be the second celebrity judge to sign on to do the show. Former Def Jam honcho L.A. Reid jumped on board last week.

The rapper is also reportedly gearing up for her movie debut.

Word on the street is that she's battling fellow rapper Eve, singer Keri Hilson and others for the lead role of the film adaptation of Michele A. Fletcher's best-selling book "Charge It to the Game."
