Nicki Minaj arrives late for American Idol live show



Nicki Minaj arrived late for Wednesday’s American Idol live broadcast.

The singer was 13 minutes late for the program, which caused her to miss the first performance of the night by Curtis Finch Jr.; she did make it just before Janelle Arthur took the stage.

Host Ryan Seacrest took Minaj’s seat at the judges table, telling viewers, “I hear she’s seven minutes out and there’s some congestion on the 405. She should be here momentarily.”

Minaj was tweeting on her way to the show, writing “Stuck in traffic *sighs*”, later adding “F**k u Malibu!!!!!!!!!!!! *moves to Beverly Hills*”

Seacrest also had some fun with the incident, jokingly asking judges Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson, “Which one of you gave Nicki the wrong directions today? Which one of you drained the fuel from her car?”

American Idol: Nicki Minaj says Mariah Carey doesn’t like her




Nicki Minaj made headlines this past week when she walked off the American Idol judging panel.

The incident was initiated by a conversation about a contestant’s musical preferences, as Minaj disagreed with fellow judges Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey’s guidance to the singer.

Nicki was asked about the situation by Jimmy Kimmel, telling the host, "I wouldn't say I don't like her. I definitely don't think she likes me."

"I looked up to her for a long time,” said Minaj. “I don't want to be like hating this lady."

Nicki says the two have had an issue from onset but they're currently "having fun."

Following the Kimmel interview, Minaj performed “Va Va Voom” and “Freedom”.

VIDEO: Nicki Minaj performs Freedom on Ellen



Nicki Minaj stopped by Ellen this week to promote her new role on American Idol and to perform.

Idol premiered Wednesday, and Minaj’s on-screen feuding with fellow new judge Mariah Carey was obvious right from the start.

Nicki spoke with Ellen about the situation.

“I dunno, it was just two big ‘ol divas, I guess,” said Minaj. “Before I went in there, I heard all the stuff that was being said but I didn’t believe it. I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel, but I’m saying no, I’m friends with Mariah. And I was arguing people down, ‘don’t believe everything you read, you’re crazy!’ And so I went there and I kinda started feeling a little bit of the shade, and I just overcompensated by being crazier.”

Nicki followed up her chat with a performance of “Freedom,” a tune from her latest re-release, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.”

Mariah Carey hires extra security after Nicki Minaj incident


A potentially explosive situation on the set of American Idol this week between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj has gone very public.

Video of a feud between the new Idol judges during auditions for the new season was leaked early this week, with Minaj challenging and swearing at Carey as the two egos clashed on the set.

Things boiled over when Minaj was heard saying to Mariah, “if you say one more disrespectful thing to me…off with your head!”

Now, Mariah tells Barbara Walters of The View that she has hired extra security to handle Minaj

“Just before we went on the air, I called Mariah,” said Walters. “She said that what you heard was troublesome, but that’s not what really worried her. She said that that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun, I would shoot that bitch.’”

"She said she is very concerned. She is with her twins," Walters says. "She doesn't feel that anything would happen. I'm quoting now, 'But Nicki is unpredictable' and Mariah says she can't take a chance and she has hired extra security."

“Nicki has not apologized but they have since been together at meetings with producers and judges,” continued Walters. “There was a meeting yesterday morning; after the meeting, Nicki said to Mariah, ‘I love you, but we might fight again.’ Mariah responded, ‘No, we will not.’

“At this point, Mariah said she doesn't feel comfortable emotionally, but she will continue with the show because she loves the show and she loves mentoring the contestants.”

American Idol is currently holding auditions and will returns for its new season in January.

Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban announced as new American Idol judges



American Idol has announced the addition of Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban to the judging panel for Season 12.

The two join Mariah Carey and longtime Idol judge Randy Jackson when the series returns in January.

Host Ryan Seacrest tweeted the news Sunday, posting a photo of the gang (see above) and writing “It's official, your new #IdolJudges are @MariahCarey, @NickiMinaj, @KeithUrban & @Yo_RandyJackson!”

Minaj joined in as well, tweeting, “New York auditions today & tomorrow! See ya there barbz!!!!!!!!!”

The four began their new Idol journey together Sunday in New York; other audition cities include Los Angeles, Chicago, Charlotte, San Antonio, Baton Rouge and Oklahoma City.

Known for her unique performance style and iconic fashion, Minaj became the first female solo artist to have seven singles simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Minaj released her second studio album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” in April 2012, which topped charts internationally, and spawned the Top 10 singles “Starships” and “Pound the Alarm.” Since then, the album has sold one million copies worldwide, and has become one of the best-selling albums of 2012, according to Nielsen SoundScan. At the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, she won Best Female Video for “Starships.” At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, she won Best Hip-Hop Video for “Super Bass.”

Nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award in the category of Best New Artist, Minaj’s rapping technique has been hailed by critics for its use of alter-egos, accents (notably, British) and rapid-fire pace. Equally well-known for her unique sense of style, her use of colorful wigs and outlandish costumes ranks her as one of the world’s leading fashion icons. Minaj is in the midst of her Pink Friday: RELOADED Tour.

Urban, one of country music’s biggest stars of the decade, has four Grammy Awards and 14 No. 1 hits, and was named Male Vocal Artist of the Year three times, as well as Entertainer of the Year, by the Country Music Association.

Rumors continue to swirl about who will fill the judging panel at American Idol.

With several names still being thrown around, US Weekly reports sources tell them that Nicki Minaj will join previously announced judge Mariah Carey.

The paper says Minaj still has contracts to sign, but that the singer will be on board for Season 12.

Speculation also continues about resident judge Randy Jackson’s status, with rumors that he will fill a mentoring role on the series and no longer be a part of the panel.

Minaj is currently in the UK for the start of a series of European dates in support of her latest album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.” The singer was forced to cancel two weekend slots at the V Festival due to an injury to her vocal chords.

Stay tuned!

Nicki Minaj cancels UK dates due to vocal injury


Nicki Minaj canceled her weekend dates at UK’s V Festival due to an injury to her vocal chords.

The Daily Mail reports festival organizers released a statement advising fans of the news.

“Miss Minaj's band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again,” said organizers. “This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal cord issues from earlier in the week. Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no longer able to perform at V Festival.”

LMFAO replaced Nicki at the festival.

“The doctor has asked me to take 2 wks of voice rest… But…” tweeted Minaj this past week, later adding, “Another x-ray cmng up! Its a bruised Vocal Chord.”

After receiving the news, the singer performed on NBC’s Today Show (watch it here) on Tuesday and followed that up with a club show in New York later that night.

Minaj’s next concert date is scheduled for Tuesday in Dublin; no word yet on whether the show will proceed or if the singer will require further rest so that she may heal her vocal chords.

“‘Masquerade’ to me, feels like the Olympics. When Adidas came to me, they mentioned the Olympics,” Minaj tells Rolling Stone. “They mentioned maybe having a performance at the Olympics, and I just put my brain into the mindframe of, ‘What does a champion feel like? What is the inner conversation of a champion?’ The song is about feeling inspired to win and to never give up and I feel like the Adidas campaign, that’s what it’s really about: giving people hope and you know, that’s what I wanted to convey in the song.”

So what made Minaj want to get involved with Adidas Originals in the first place?

“Well, I am a fan of the Adidas brand and have been for a very long time,” she says. “I believe they represent what I represent, which is inspiration and fun and working hard as well.”

Nicki is currently performing on her first US headlining tour, after which she heads to Europe for shows starting August 18 with her appearance at the V Festival in London.
