5. Nicki Minaj afraid to watch ‘American Idol’?
Nicki Minaj might be watching "American Idol" with one eye closed. She admitted to host Ryan Seacrest that she’s "scared" to see the show.
“Maybe I shouldn’t have been so like …," she said during her visit to Ryan’s radio show on Monday. “It’s hard for me to not say how I really feel.” She said that the other judges were much nicer to contestants, but she wanted to be the one to help them develop a thicker skin for the harsh blows of showbiz.
“I don’t think I’m going to be able to watch it. I’m going to be so nervous,” said Nicki. “But I know people are going to love it. I think it’s a great dynamic.”
Judge for yourself when "American Idol" returns on January 16. In the meantime, Nicki has released another video in the promo blitz for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up. Today, she dropped the black-and-white visual for "Freedom."
