Nicki Minaj clears up American Idol comments on J-Lo
The 29-year-old, who performed her current single, ‘Starships,’ on the hit US show, told host Ryan Seacrest: "I was hoping maybe I could come back and be a guest judge. Hey J.Lo, can you scoot over a little bit?" before the ‘On The Floor’ star responded: "I don't know if there's enough room for both of us."
However, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Trinidadian-born New Yorker says that she didn’t mean for her comments to be taking seriously:
"She didn't seem to be having it--but she gonna have it! When I come through, she gonna move! No, actually, I love J.Lo. I love what she's done for pop culture. I have nothing but respect for her, and we were just joking around."
But the ‘Super Bass’ star, who releases her second studio album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ on Apr 3, admitted that although she has no intentions of putting J-Lo’s nose out of joint, she still likes the idea of joining the panel as a one-off.
“For something like 'American Idol,' it's pretty historic, it's an iconic show, and it has been around for so long and created so many stars. You know, it has integrity. So I would love to [be an 'Idol' guest judge]. But as far as sitting down every week, I can't. Not right now."
