Lil Wayne: I Don’t Watch Nicki Minaj On ‘American Idol’
Lil Wayne may be one of Nicki Minaj’s biggest fans but he still hasn’t tuned in to watch his protege on American Idol.
One of the main draws to this season of American Idol is the new talent in the judging chairs. Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have numerous public spats and Lil Wayne said that he wasn’t really interested in tuning in to watch the cat fight.
“Actually, I’ve never watched it … When I talk to her she’s always tells me, `You don’t wanna watch that, you’re not going to be into it.’ She knows me … It’s kind of like a cat fight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I’m not into all that.”
But that doesn’t mean that Wayne isn’t a fan of Minaj or the show. Nicki said last month that Lil Wayne actually pushed her to do American Idol.
Minaj said that she was very nervous about joining such a popular show but that she was convinced after she talked to Lil Wayne.
“I asked a lot of people I really cared about if I should do it and the last person that I asked was Lil Wayne. He said ‘Absolutely do it’ and that was my last thing where I found peace with it, so I did it, I signed on the dotted line.”
