Get ready to see more of Nicki Minaj this winter! A new season of ‘American Idol‘ is about to start, and she will be at the judges table, along with Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and the lone returning judge, Randy Jackson. Now that the time is here, Nicki’s worried her stint on ‘American Idol’ will make her TOO famous. I didn’t even know celebs worried about that these days!
“I had a lot of talks with people — my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers. Sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
Nicki declined to discuss tension between herself and Mariah except to say:
“Sometimes things get heated for their own reasons. I don’t think the panel has an issue.
I have to admit, I’ll be tuning into ‘American Idol’ to see the new judging panel. Of course that’s exactly what the producers want! I’m putty in their hands- LOL. Are you planning to watch?
