Minaj says she'd be up for performing with Carey on Idol.
"I would do that," Minaj told me this morning while promoting Nicki Minaj: My Truth, her new three-part reality special on E! "I think people would be interested in seeing that."
That's an understatement!
I also suggested she open a museum to showcase all her fashions and wigs. "That's a good idea," the singer said. "I think you're on to something."
Cameras started following Nicki's every move when she began putting together her upcoming album reissue, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up. "My fans get so excited whenever they get to see what goes on behind the scenes," she said. "I wanted to show how it is really is."
And nothing was off limits. "Even when I'm doing things like changing wigs or looking raggedy, fans have never seen that. It's real," the Idol judge said, adding, "I'm going to tell the truth about a lot of things. There's a lot of wrong things said about me that I don't usually say anything about, but now I am."
She's also ready for some acting. "I want to do something like a small action movie," she said.
With President Barack Obama a self-proclaimed fan, Minaj joked that she'll probably send him an early release of Re-Up before it goes on sale later this month.
"My fans are so crazy," she said with a laugh. "They were saying they wanted the president to come out last night with my song 'Freedom' playing."
That may not have happened, but at least we know it'll probably end up on his iPod.
The second installment of Nicki Minaj: My Truth airs on E! on Sunday at 10:30 p.m./9:30 p.m. CT.
