If this was any other season or any other judge, I would just pass off what Nicki Minaj said last night to hyperbole. I know, big word. Saw it in a newspaper the other day and decided to give it a whirl. Don't worry, I have not lost my ability to say baby mama. On Wednesday, Nicki was late to a live taping of American Idol by 13 minutes. I say taping because here on the west coast we don't see it live. We have to wait three hours to see Ryan Seacrest's carefully coiffed hair. Last night, Nicki's favorite contestant was eliminated which prompted her to threaten to quit the show. I think she meant it and if she was on a show like The Voice she probably would. Nicki does not need American Idol's money and it would not shock me to see her be late again or leave early or cause some kind of other drama on the show.
