Nicki Minaj Felt Like She Did Something

Nicki Minaj was surprised by the friction she had with one of her own idols on the hit television program.

Nicki Minaj's run on "American Idol" has been filled with tense moments. The Queens rapper said she's extremely disappointed that much of the conflict was with one of her own idols, fellow judge Mariah Carey.

"Imagine someone that you loved your whole life, imagine you meeting them and then all of the sudden feeling like you did something horrible to them, but you just don't know what you did," Minaj said during an interview with Ryan Seacrest. "That's what my relationship with Mariah is and that's what it's been from the beginning. I just really thought that we were friends." 

Minaj and Mariah Carey collaborated on the remix to Mariah's "Up Out My Face" single in 2010 before pairing on "Idol," leading Minaj to believe that their relationship on the television show would be fun-filled.

"I came in to do 'Idol' really in my heart thinking that we were going to be the most fun judges of all time," Minaj said during the interview. "I was like, 'I love Mariah. We're going to be so good together 'cause we're both funny. We're crazy. We have a past relationship.'"

But the rift with Mariah wasn't her only surprise on "Idol." Minaj told Seacrest that she did not expect to have such strong chemistry with Keith Urban, a country singer. Minaj also said that one of the main reasons she did "American Idol" was because of the support of and bond with her fans.

Minaj seemed interested in returning to "Idol," which debuted in 2002. "That's the million dollar question," she told Seacrest. But none of the judges, including original talent evaluator Randy Jackson, are set to return to the hit program for another season, according to multiple reports.

    Seriously Nicki needs to show some respect. All I can say Nicki is one bitch. Katy Perry, Beyonce, Cheryl Cole and Carly Rae Jepsen are better

    "Excuses, excuses. If Nicki didn't want it promoted, it wouldn't have been released as a single; she obviously wanted to promote it. Beautiful is actually doing better than High School." Haven't you heard of promotional single? She didn't want it to be released as a full single but did not mind promotiing it as a promotiona single. Beautiful did not chart the top 100 while high school did.

      Wow, you're a fucking idiot. High School's not a promotional single, it's a full single. Nicki obviously wanted to promote it if it was released as a single. Beautiful was just released a few days ago; it's gonna chart on Billboard, charting higher than High School.
    • dentaldamboy
      Hey dickboy, it was only a promotional single. Nicki Minaj wanted to wind down promotion to work on her third album. Her first single from that album will be in the top ten from day 1.

      BTW, IANAHB2 Actually sold almost a million copies on opening release. Unfortunately, due to a glitch, the copies they bought were redirected towards 20/20 experience. They left the mistake in.

    You can easily tell the fake dentaldamboy users because they don't talk shit about Jay-Z. The real dentaldamboy HATES jay-Z. Matter of fact, when Beyonce peforms in New Orleans, Birdman and Wayne may kidnap her and get some of that "how much you love your lady money?" from Jay.
    • dentaldamboy
      That's right. Jay Z is wack. Him and Kayne are secret lovers, kissing on the lips.
    • dentaldamboy

    I actually am not a accountant, I gotta come clean. I'm 14 and live in my grandparents house (my mom gave me up cause she was a crack-head and never met my dad). I do this trolling thing because it makes me feel like I matter to SOMEONE at least ! Now that the jokes over, I just want to apologize for being such an troll and all my fake opinions...please don't be too mad, this site is all I have ...
    • dentaldamboy
      Fake!!! High School only struggled because Nicki didn't want it promoted. Beautiful with Mariah Carey has more promotion and is doing worse than High School.

      "High School only struggled because Nicki didn't want it promoted. Beautiful with Mariah Carey has more promotion and is doing worse than High School." Excuses, excuses. If Nicki didn't want it promoted, it wouldn't have been released as a single; she obviously wanted to promote it. Beautiful is actually doing better than High School.
