Nicki Minaj's Self-Review: She Says She's Been "Spectacular" as an "American Idol" Judge


If you've abandoned "American Idol" this season, there's a decent chance it's because you CAN'T STAND NICKI MINAJ, and her annoying "critiques."

Well, Nicki has a completely different take on her performance on "Idol".  She'd probably give herself an "A", because she thinks she's been a PERFECT judge.  When asked for her best and worst "Idol" moments, she said, "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!"

Nicki does say she was unsure about it at the beginning, because she was worried that America might HATE her.  She said,  "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.'"

By the way, Nicki wouldn't comment on whether or not she'll be back next season.  She said, "I like to save the mystery and the drama.  I'd never give that away."
