Nicki Minaj hit the stage on “American Idol” last night to perform her single “Starship,” but it’s the few moments surrounding it that are most memorable.
While chatting with Ryan Seacrest, Nicki said she’d like to come back as a guest judge and sit on the panel. And after Ryan asked Randy, Steven and Jennifer what they thought, Nicki looked right at J Lo and said, “J-Lo, can you scoot over a little bit?”
And then Jennifer Lopez (visibly cutting a serious inner-side eye at her too) snapped, “I don’t think there’s room enough for both of us here!”
*Snaps & a swirl* Nicki later addressed the comment backstage saying, “She didn’t seem to be having it but she gonna have it!” Then she added, “No, actually, I love J-Lo. I love what she’s done for pop culture I have nothing but respect for her and we were just joking around. I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun with them when I’m guest judging.”
But um Nicki, methinks you don’t know Jenny like that and we all know that Jenny from the Block demeanor will flip that wig in a quick second. Just sayin’….
