Naughty rapper ‘Lil Wayne‘ was believed to have died last week after rumours spread online about him being forced into an induced coma. The frequent drug user collapsed on the set of his latest music video, after overdosing and having sezuires leading to his collapse from ‘sizzurp.’
The liquid concoction gave him seizure-like symptoms onboard his private jet, and for a while thousands of Twitter users believed him to be dead. He posted on the social networking site to prove that he is still alive with the concise message: “I’m good everybody. Thanks for the prayers and love.” His close friend Nicki Minaj visited him at his LA hospital over the weekend, and cried when she saw what kind of state he was in.
With such a bolshy character, it’s hard to imagine Nicki Minaj being scared of anything. But the singer has exclusively told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she’s worried her fans won’t like how she comes across when giving feedback to contestants on ‘American Idol‘.
“I’m scared. Maybe I shouldn’t have been so like… It’s hard for me to not say how I really feel. Everyone else is so nice. I was just thinking back about some things and I was like, “I wonder if that was not so nice.” I don’t think I’m going to be able to watch it. I’m going to be so nervous. But I know people are going to love it. I think it’s a great dynamic. As an artist I’ve always grown more from the tougher criticism and so I would like to be that person and to try to help people get that thick skin and to really give it their all, because it is a competition.”
And the Mariah feud must have calmed down recently too: “The chemistry of the judges, I feel it while I’m there. I think it’s really different from anything we’ve seen before on ‘Idol‘ and people are going to like it. If she’ll have me, I’ll be there waiting.”
‘JLS‘ singer Oritsé Williams has revealed to ‘We Love Pop‘ magazine that Nicki Minaj rejected his advances over the summer.
“We had a thing going on Twitter for a while. She came over for the ‘V Festival‘ and we got chatting and I said I’d love to take her out and we left it there. She hasn’t got back to me. So I’m still looking for love. Any nice girls out there? Hit me up!”
Nicki Minaj launched into a foul-mouthed rant at ‘American Idol‘ colleague Mariah Carey at auditions for the show yesterday after arguing over a contestant’s performance.
In a video obtained by ‘TMZ‘, Nicki slams the diva: “Think I’m playin? Think this shit is a fucking joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me, off with your head! Off with your head, off with your head. Don’t tell me I’m insecure, don’t tell me I’m inadequate … you gonna get sent. Just fall back-you know I don’t feel inadequate. You’re the insecure one sittin’ up there running down her resume every 5 minutes. Every time you take a shot at me I’ma take it back, and if you gotta fucking problem then handle it. I told them, I’m not fucking putting up with your fucking highness over there … figure it the fuck out. Figure it out.”
Mariah retorted: “Why do I have a 3-year-old sitting around me? Listen. I can’t see my kids because you decided to make, to have, to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage.” Nicki ended the argument with one parting message: “Good, well then go see them now, go see them now … you’re boring as fuck, you’re boring as fuck.”
I bet fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson were more entertained by that little show-down than any of the other contestants then! The show’s host Ryan Seacrest tweeted last night: “Going to bed in Charlotte after an anything but dull day at
#Idol auditions. Hit you in morn.” Nicki 1, Mariah –10.
Nicki Minaj was confirmed today by ‘American Idol‘ host Ryan Seacrest as the latest judge on the show’s panel. She will sit alongside Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson and judge the talent of the thousands of entrants, and will no doubt pull a series of hilarious facial expressions herself along the way!
Show boss Simon Fuller said in a statement: “With the exciting addition of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, alongside Randy Jackson, ‘American Idol’s star power has never been so great.” Nicki tweeted her excitement about her role today: “New York auditions today & tomorrow! See ya there barbz!
#AmericanIdol.” Very smart career move here Nicki.
Nicki Minaj revealed her extremely creative bottle for her upcoming debut fragrance on Twitter this morning. She hinted to her millions of followers yesterday that she had a special surprise planned, and certainly did not disappoint with the miniature version of herself.
“Barbz, the surprise is this: tomorrow morning, I’m tweeting the perfume NAME & BOTTLE!! 9am EST!! Mmmuaaaahhhh! Barbz, I’m glad you’re on time to our meeting. Let me know when this trends: #NickiFragrance.”
UK Barbz may possibly even get a perfume signing at a top department store, who knows, as she told a fan today that she “would like there to be one.” Wooo!
Nicki Minaj well and truly lost her rag earlier today on Twitter after receiving complaints as to why she cancelled Saturday’s scheduled performance at ‘V Festival‘ at the last minute. I love the girl but she needs to tone things down a little on the crazy scale.
In an essay-long Twitter rant, she moaned about her vocal chord injury, and branded groups of her fans as “whores”, and even goes as far as telling them to “kill ya fucking self”! Bad PR there Nicki! “I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a fucking HEALTH issue! That’s what got me in this mess! I should’ve listened to the doctor! I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal chord. If you can’t understand that, your mother’s a WHORE! My beloved United Kingdom, you know how much I fucking love you! Ireland, I truly appreciate you. Barbz, thank you for the well wishes.”
Rap sensation Nicki Minaj left thousands of fans disappointed yesterday when she was forced to cancel her scheduled appearance at ‘V Festival‘ because of a bout of illness. Her doctors have diagnosed her with having bruised vocal chords, and she has been ordered to rest, making her unable to fly from New York to the UK to fulfill her work commitments.
Festival organisers apologised in a statement: “Miss Minaj‘s band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal chord issues from earlier in the week. Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no longer able to perform at ‘V Festival‘. We wish her a speedy recovery.”
Nicki Minaj has revealed that she wrote brilliant pop song ‘Masquerade‘ specifically with the London 2012 Olympic games in mind.
She told legendary music magazine ‘The Rolling Stone‘: “‘Masquerade‘, to me, feels like the Olympics. When ‘Adidas‘ came to me, they mentioned the Olympics. They mentioned maybe having a performance at the Olympics, and I just put my brain into the mind frame of, ‘What does a champion feel like? What is the inner conversation of a champion?’ I just started by saying ‘feel the beat of the drum’ and talking about being number 1; all those things that go through your brain sometimes when you’re feeling like you’re at the crossroads between continuing and giving up. The song is about feeling inspired to win and to never give up and I feel like the ‘Adidas‘ campaign, that’s what it’s really about: giving people hope and, you know, that’s what I wanted to convey in the song.”
