Will Nicki Minaj Perform With Mariah Carey On ‘American Idol’?
Nicki Minaj called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Monday to talk about her new album, her new sexy perfume, how she feels about her judging tactics on American Idol, and most importantly will she perform with Mariah Carey?
Does Nicki Regret How She Acted Towards Contestants?
“I’m scared! Maybe I should have been so… I’m just thinking… it’s hard for me to not say how I really feel. I’m having a hard time [with how honest I am sometimes]. Everyone else is so nice. I was just thinking back about some things, and thinking ‘I wonder if that was not nice.’” She continues “As an artist, I’ve always grown more from the tougher criticism, I would like to be that person and to try to give people that thick skin and really give it their all. It is a competition.”
Would Nicki Ever Perform On American Idol With Mariah Carey?
“If she’ll have me, I’ll be there waiting.”
On Fellow ‘American Idol’ Judges:
“I know that people are going to love it. I think it’s a great dynamic. Just the chemistry of the judges, I feel that while I’m there I think it’s really different than anything we’ve seen before on idol and people are going to like it a lot.”
On Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, The Re-Up:
“It’s just so much better. It’s 8 new songs and 90 minute DVD. It’s a little of a different direction from the mainstream, but it’s kind of more in the direction I originally started in. My fans kind of wanted me to go back to my original sound and feel. I’m proud of it. I feel like the music is just a better representation of me and where I am now as an artist in my career.” You can buy her album on iTunes here!
