'American Idol' was not as easy as Nicki Minaj thought it would beAdd to Favorites | The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Nicki Minaj is stopping by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday (Sept. 26), where host Ellen DeGeneres gives her a thong and Minaj talks about her time judging "American Idol."
On "American Idol":
Ellen: "When you joined 'Idol' and I asked you how in the world you were going to hold that thing down? Did I predict it or ... I told you. I said, that is going to be a hard thing for you to embrace."
Nicki: "You said that it was going to be a very difficult job and I laughed you off ... ha ha ha, Ellen, you don't know what you are talking about ... but I wouldn't trade it for the world. It was a great learning experience, honestly. Literally as soon as 'Idol' was done I did the Billboard Awards and then I flew to New York to shoot a movie. I didn't even get to sit back and think what did I just do? It kind of happened so quick and then it was over."
Ellen: "You did have fun. You seemed to have fun on the panel, right?"
Nicki: "Yeah,um hum. ... I did...
Ellen: "And you wouldn't go back again?"
Ellen gives Nicki a black "Ellen" thong:
Nicki: "What am I going to do with this?"
Ellen: "You know what you're going to do with that."
Nicki: "I don't know, Ellen, this may be a little too much for me...."
Ellen: "That is a wonderful quote."
Nicki: "Would you wear these? Keep it real?"
Ellen: "That's what I got on right now."
