The “socially awkward” semifinalist of American Idol season 12 Charlie Askew recently sat down for an interview in which he spoke about being on the show, and the criticism on his final night from our favorite judge Nicki Minaj! Read his comments below.

“I was hurt by what Nicki said, but the reason wasn’t because she was critiquing me in any negative way. I’m used to that. I do this for negative and positive criticism,” he said. “But all the comments she kept throwing out there were about my image and my outfit and my arms… and not the singing! And I thought of all people she would understand where I was coming from with this performance. It was almost hypocritical of her … She changes her image every day, you know?”
