Interviews

In the video above, you can watch MTV‘s interview with Nicki Minaj that took place at the American Idol audition judging panel in New York City on September 17th. The Young Money Barbie discusses what made her finally pick up the phone and accept American Idol’s offer to join the TV show.

“I remember watching ‘American Idol’ in the first season and feeling inspired. I spoke to season 6 winner Jordin Sparks the other day and here she is starring in a movie ‘Sparkle’ and I said to her, ‘I remember watching you and picking up my phone.”

“Because my little brother was more obsessed over the Blake person because he was like, more, you know, hip-hop, whatever. But I told Sparks that, ‘you know you’re a part of history, kind of. Because I remember calling and seeing your face and being inspired and hearing your story.”

“This is such a credible brand,” she said. “It’s really serious, it’s real deal it’s not anything else other than really looking for talent. If I can be a part of that I’m really down for it. It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter.”

    All of yall are fuckin haters i swear. Nicki can actually sing! But yes she does use autotone for some songs, But its not like she does it for everything and she its defiantly not the only one who does it! And she doesn’t abuse it to the max like other singers.

    Proof Nicki Can sing 🙂
