Nicki Minaj has opened up on Jimmy Kimmel show about her reported American Idol feud with Mariah Carey.
The singers have been at loggerheads ever since they first started working together on American Idol.
Nicki Minaj wore a garish trouser suit for her appearance on the show, which Jimmy Kimmel immediately commented on.
“Where do you get stuff like this? Do you have to make it?”
“No! It’s Roberto Cavalli, you can buy it in stores,” she said.
Jimmy Kimmel went on to praise her judging skills on the talent show, saying that she seems solid and reasonable, which is the opposite of her public persona.
“A lot of people don’t like their co-workers at their offices, but your office is on television and so when you have skirmishes everyone sees them. And clearly, you and Mariah Carey do not like each other,” Jimmy Kimmel probed.
“I wouldn’t say I don’t like her, I definitely don’t think she likes me,” Nicki Minaj replied, adding that despite this, she makes a fair bit of effort to be friendly.
“I try, as I looked up to her for a long time, so I don’t want to hate on this lady, but she had an issue from the beginning. We’re having fun though.
“I genuinely like going there, even Mariah and I, we really do have fun.”
But while she might be making waves on reality TV, Nicki Minaj was there to do what she does best – perform.
Nicki Minaj took to a special outdoor stage to perform Va Va Voom and Freedom in front of an overexcited audience.
Writhing and singing to the music of a live band, Nicki Minaj added a jaunty leopard print hat to her already clashing outfit.
