Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj Talk About Joining American Idol

January 4, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via Perez Hilton), both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj revealed why they joined this season of American Idol.

Carey said: ““I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. [Husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’

Minaj added: ““[There’s] a judgmental culture in hip-hop…sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.
