After a guest appearance on American Idol Thursday night, Nicki Minaj and J-Lo engaged in a playful, yet somewhat tense, conversation about Minaj possibly joining the show as a guest judge.
“I was hoping maybe I could come back and be a guest judge,” joked Minaj. “Hey J-Lo, can you scoot over a little bit?”
“I don’t know if there’s enough room for both of us,” shot back J-Lo, trying her best to smile while responding. While her reply could have been a reference to two of the planet’s most famously plump rumps, it could also relate to two of the music industry’s most notoriously diva-like personalities.
Once backstage, Minaj commented on the detected testiness in J-Lo’s reply.
“[J-Lo] didn’t seem to be having it… but she gonna have it,” said Minaj.
However, moments later she backed off, claiming that she “loves” J-Lo.
“I love what she’s done for pop culture. I have nothing but respect for her, and we were joking around. I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun with them when I’m guest-judging.”
Wow, it seems like Nicki Minaj has already pre-determined that she will indeed be a guest judge on American Idol. Whether or not she and J-Lo can co-exist as judges is yet to be determined.
But it sure will be good for ratings.
