Nicki Minaj Won’t Watch Herself on American Idol

Monday, January 21, 2013

NICKI Minaj refuses to watch herself on American Idol — because she’s worried about what she’ll make of it.

The singer says she’s too self-conscious to see herself in action, as she’s her own worst critic.

“I’m not going to watch myself,” she said.

“I have a hard time watching myself with anything. I’m afraid I’m going to overanalyse it and make myself feel bad about something I can’t change.

“With a performance, I’ll watch and then pause it and see if I could handle that. Sometimes it’s a good performance and I really love it and I’ll watch it every day after that. I’m my biggest critic.

“When I’m on the stage I feel what I do – if I do great, if I do not great, I feel it. It’s funny because that’s what we’re trying to tell the contestants. You should be at a place in your artistry when you know when you’re on and when you’re off, and no one should even need to tell you that.

“When I watch these shows and they say yes to someone who clearly doesn’t deserve it, that bothers me in my soul – I want to jump through the TV. For me, it was completely different. I don’t feel the need to send someone through just because of a great story.”
