Nicki Minaj Won't Go Back to American Idol
"I wouldn't trade it for the world."
Nicki Minaj says she had a great time on American Idol but there's still no way she'll do it again.
"It was a great learning experience, honestly," the rapper told Ellen.
"When you joined Idol and I asked you how in the world you were gonna hold that thing down, did I predict it?" Ellen said. "I told you, I said that was gonna be a hard thing for you to do."
"You did say that," Minaj replied. "You said that it was going to be a very difficult job and I laughed you off. I was like, "Ha ha ha Ellen, you don't know what you are talking about.'"
Nicki says her busy schedule prevented her from really pondering what had happened.
"As soon as Idol was done I did the Billboard Awards and I flew to New York to shoot a movie," Minaj said. "So I didn't even get to sit back and think what did I just do."
When Ellen asked if she had, Nicki just said "mmhmmm", hinting at something else.
"What are you laughing at?" Ellen asked.
"I'm not laughing… I'm smiling."
And when Ellen asked if she'd go back, there was no hesitation.
