Poor Nicki Minaj! When American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest, dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, the comedian could not stop snarking about Nicki’s behavior, as if the judge and Hip Hop singer goes off for no reason. Hey, when the lady is provoked, she attacks.
Still, Jimmy’s questions and quips were pretty amusing. For instance, he notes that Ryan has yet to apologize for bringing The Kardashians to America. (Ryan calls his creation a modern-day Brady Bunch. Eep)
The American Idol talk begins in Part 2. Ryan deftly avoids commenting directly on any feuds by stressing how great the new panel is at judging the hopefuls, “It’s all about the talent and the kids on the show…they’re really great at giving their opinion,” insists Ryan, ” Who knows when the show goes live but I think it will be compelling to see.”
When Jimmy asked flat-out if Nicki is crazy, Ryan answered “I think people are going to be impressed with how good she is as a judge on the show.”
“If Nicki Minaj pulls you off the stage and beats you on the air, this show is going to be right back up [in the ratings],” joked Jimmy, “who knows, maybe a 100 million viewers!”
“You know me,” responded Ryan, “Anything for the show.” Ha.
