Things don’t look so good for Nicki Minaj since her judging role on American Idol has reportedly decreased ratings for the show, but apparently it doesn’t phase her!
At a recent press conference, the Pink Friday rapper responded to the criticism that people have been giving her for her performance as a judge.
When asked about her best and worst moments on the show, Nicki responded:
‘My best and worst Idol moments? I don’t have a worst Idol moment. I’ve been spectacular.’
‘Yes, I am going to toot my own horn. And then my best moment is every single moment. I’ll toot it again!’
Even though she thinks she was greater than great as a judge, she did talk about her nervousness on taking on the job:
‘I didn’t know what to expect going in to the show. I was so nervous,’ she said.
‘I had a lot of anxiety. I felt like, ‘Okay, I know everybody’s just going to hate me. There were moments in the audition process that I would say to the producers, ‘I can’t do this anymore. If everyone is going to give a good critique and I’m going to be the only one being honest, then America is going to hate me. I’m going to be seen as mean.’
‘And the producers said, ‘Nicki, trust us, America is going to appreciate the honesty.’ And that’s all I had to go on.’
Unfortunately, the ratings for the show were the lowest they’ve ever been during last week’s Wednesday episode, but maybe Nicki and the other judges can pull it together for the finale soon!
