Nicki Minaj has attempted to end the beef between herself and fellow Idols judge Mariah Carey, calling her on her favorite artistes of all time.
Nicki Minaj appeared on Good Morning America where she discussed her two American Music Award wins and her upcoming role as a judge on “American Idol.” When asked about her relationship with fellow judge Mariah Carey, Nicki seemed reach to bury the hatchet saying, ”[Mariah’s] been one of my favorite artists of all time since I can remember, so it’s weird that everything kind of, was blown up like that. It didn’t make me happy at all. I can’t take away what she’s done in my life and just in pop culture in general and just having one of the most amazing voices in the world.
Having said that, I’m an adult and we are passionate on the set and sometimes when you’re a passionate woman, you know, sometimes it kind of ruffles other women’s feathers, but I’m going to continue to be Nicki Minaj.”
When asked about her role on “AI” and if she would be a tough judge, she said, ”I would consider myself an honest judge. That’s all I’m doing. I’ve said before, I want them to leave with the truth. I feel like the truth has always fueled me to get better. So sometimes criticism helps in order for you to go and like perfect your craft. And I think that’s what they want.”
