The show must go on!
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey may have had their spats in the early parts of this season of American Idol, but the divas put their differences aside and primped their wigs for the cover of The Hollywood Reporter.
The pair is separated by their cast members – with the addition of host Ryan Seacrest – with the title “Making Idol Over (Again).”
But it actually turns out that both Mariah and Nicki weren’t even planning on signing onto the show.
Check out some excerpts from the interview below.
Mariah, on deciding to do the reality show:
“I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. [Husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’”
Nicki, on the stigma of being on the show:
“[There's] a judgmental culture in hip-hop…sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
The Idol money makes the enemies become besties!
