With only one day left until the premiere of “American Idol,” Nicki Minaj paid a visit to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday. Looking grown and sexy in a short dress and pink blazer, the outspoken rapper discussed her new day job, reflected on her early career, and recalled auditioning at LaGuardia High School of Music & Art.
She told Jay about her first acting gig, where she was paid $750. But despite her charm, she wasn’t able to steal the spotlight from her co-star, who was a porn star.
If she was president of the United States, the self-described “aggressive” driver’s first order of business would be to legalize illegal U-turns.
She also spoke about the crazy “Idol” auditions and one of her favorite contestants, a girl she nicknamed “Big Crazy Barb.” Tune in to the two-night premiere on Wednesday to find out why Nicki is “obsessed” with her.
