Nick Minaj On Live Shows “I Can’t Trust Myself” (VIDEO)

Nicki Minaj is doing the talk show rounds to promote the upcoming season of American Idol. She recently sat down for a chat with Ellen DeGeneres, and the quirky rapper did not disappoint. As a bonus, she also performed her single. ‘Freedom.”

Nicki was not ready for American Idol’s long hours, she revealed to Ellen. Once she was at work, she hated to take breaks–even to pee.  Yes, if she had had her own way,  her fellow judges would have been forced to exercise extreme bladder control.

Of course, questions about the infamous feud she had in October with Mariah Carey came up. Nicki describes herself  and Mariah as “two big old divas.”   Nicki explains that when she felt a little bit of shade from Mariah, she responded by acting even “crazier.” Her feelings were hurt. She insists that the relationship has since been patched up and  she is NOT holding a grudge against the legendary singer.

Also, she’s NOT looking forward to the live shows! (Note expression in the screen grab. Ahem.) “I cannot trust myself,” she warns. Uh oh. “I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again.” Oh. If Mariah throws shade again, she won’t be able to control herself. Nigel must be beside himself with happiness.

Who is Nicki dating? Just in case you care.

    Poor Nicki having to put in eight-hour days to earn her millions.

    The live shows this year should be interesting to say the least lol.

    I like her and she’s one of the only reasons I’m excited to see how the show goes this year.  I saw her on Fashion Police last year and she totally turned my opinion around.  I’m looking forward to some fresh reactions and opinions. I just hope she can keep it real.

    That’s what they all say, I’ll believe it after four weeks of live shows when she still hasn’t used the words “beautiful” or “amazing”.

    The top comment on the first youtube video about the feud is, “no one watches american idol .. #xfactor?.” LMFAO.

  • Li Wright

    Interesting, her choice of clothing has become surprisingly conservative.

  • Kariann Hart

    It seems the other young lady does the real singing.  This is the first time I have heard Nicki’s music.  I don’t know what to say except I hope she’s an amazing judge!

    “I don’t think you’re a psycho, Nicki. I think you’re a creative and passionate person, and I nthink you have many facets of your personality and I think some personalities are wilder than other personalities  and the wild personalities can get out of control”

    Elen, you gave the definition for a psycho. Just saying.
