Posted on Written by JaviComments Off on Nicki NOT Performing on American Idol?
Nicki Minaj sat down with MTV News last week and informed them that she would not be following fellow Idol judge Keith Urban’s notion to perform on the show.
Speaking to MTV News: ‘I think kudos to Keith for doing it, but I just don’t know if I want to wear that hat there,’
“All of these kids that are left right now, I don’t want to see any one of them go now,” Minaj told MTV News during “MTV First: Nicki Minaj.” “To be completely honest, I feel they could all go out and make an album right now and be successful around the world. And also, they put in work, they put in a lot of work and they deserve to be there. I think that’s what makes me happy. The people we have left deserve to be there.”
“Burnell has a real R&B soulful John Legend voice to me. I could completely see myself doing a song with Burnell,” Minaj said. “Kree [Harrison] and Janelle, I see them doing more country, so I don’t know how that would work, but to be honest, I would work with any of them.”
While Minaj is open to working with the contestants, there is one thing she may be opposed to while on “Idol” — performing. The Young Money rapper revealed that even though performing her new single, “High School” with Lil Wayne would be “dope,” she, unlike fellow judge Keith Urban, who took the stage last week, is still unsure if judging and performing mix.”
“I don’t know if I want to wear the performer hat on ‘Idol,’ ” Minaj said. “I think kudos to Keith for doing it, but I just don’t know if I want to wear that hat there.”

Count on Nicki Minaj to turn more than a few heads on the red carpet. In a new envelope-pushing look for her, the always outrageous Nicki channeled high fashion and religion in a strange way on tonight’s Grammy red carpet. Nicki rocked a deep red Versace cloak, covering more skin than she usually does, which offset her glowing fresh-faced makeup. Hip-hop’s Little Red Riding Hood was in the building. Even more eyebrow-raising was her choice of date, an older gentleman man decked out in a bishop’s ensemble. We can only wonder what those two chatted about on the limo ride over.
Fans took to Twitter to share their confusion. “How can I describe #NickiMinaj’s performance? Let’s say it’s a religious experience,” said one while another added “where’s the big bad wolf when you need him #nickiminaj?”
Nicki will take the stage tonight for the first time and premiere “Roman’s Holiday”, the next single from her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded sophomore album. She’s also up for one of the night’s biggest nods, Best New Artist where she’ll go head-to-head with J. Cole, The Band Perry, Bon Iver and Skrillex.
Earlier today, Nicki tweeted her love for singer Whitney Houston who died suddenly. “Jesus Christ, not Whitney Houston. Greatest of all time,” she wrote and then Twitpiced a photograph of Whitney with Michael Jackson.
The Atlanta-based rapper has three in his collection, and he’s hoping his eighth studio album, Ludaversal, brings him a few more. No release date has been set, but it’s expected sometime this year.
Luda won his first Grammy for his collaboration with Usher for 2004’s contagious single “Yeah.”
“Man, it was a great feeling. I’m happy to be working with Usher again on the Ludaversal album so we can come back and win yet another Grammy,” Luda told MTV News on Thursday. “My best Grammy experience was winning Best Rap Album for Release Therapy (which was released in 2006). I worked hard on that album specifically to win a Grammy, and I accomplished my goal. So no words can explain how great that felt. But we’re coming right back at ’em soon.”
His pick for Sunday night is clear: He wants to see Nicki Minaj to win Best New Artist. He worked with the MC on 2010’s “My Chick Bad,” off his Battle of the Sexes album.
“I’m looking forward to seeing Nicki Minaj. I love her. I’m glad I got a chance to work with her. I’m extremely proud of her,” he said. “She’s just scratching the surface of what she’s capable of. So Nicki: keep doing your thing, girl.”
