Between dates on her U.K. arena tour, Nicki Minaj paid a visit to British talk show “Alan Carr: Chatty Man.” Sipping Cactus Jack’s Apple Sour Schnapps and nibbling on scones, the blonde rap diva spoke with the funnyman about her love for the U.K., shooting a video for her new single in London, why she decided to do “American Idol” over “X Factor,” and her E! reality show. Plus, she gave viewers an eyeful of her famous assets.
On Justin Bieber grinding against her in the “Beauty and a Beat” video: “He couldn’t even feel me through that big poofy skirt. His little thing…”
On her wig collection: “The wigs winded up having their own room. I had to move because of the wigs. It takes up a lot of space, so now I just let my hairdresser keep most of them, 99 percent of them.”
On why she didn’t do “X Factor”: “We were in talks up until the last minute. And he went with Nicole [Scherzinger]. It just wasn’t right; I wasn’t completely sold on it. I don’t think the show really knew my worth at the time either. But I love Simon. Just to even have him interested, I was honored.”
She also sent a special message to JLS member Oritsé, who has a crush on her. “I’m so happy that you like me,” a flirty Nicki told the British pop star. “Maybe one day we can have some amazing love connection.”
