Nicki Minaj taped an interview with Ellen DeGeneres this week and aimed to clear up two issues:
- She is not feuding with fellow new American Idol judge Mariah Carey.
- She is not a crazy psychopath!
Indeed, while Mariah is acting all Mariah-like in awkward videos, Minaj is attempting to calmly set the record straight. Watch for yourself:
"We're fine," Nicki says of her and Mariah. "I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don't understand is that I've looked up to her for so many years. Since she came out, 'Vision of Love' all that. Me and my mother would sing her songs like all day and all night.
"So I don't know if she's gotten over it but I have."
In the end, Minaj emphasized that her relationship with Carey or any other judge isn't the focus of the show anyway.
"We have a lot of great talent, and I don't want anyone on the panel to say something too crazy because then I don't want to look like a crazy psycho again. I am not really a crazy psycho, you guys."
