Nicki Minaj may have said say to becoming one of the new judges on American Idol but she had reservations about her choice, even thinking it could be uncool to be too famous.”Sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
Mariah Carey was also on the fence about becoming a judge. “I was on the fence about the whole thing.I got approached by all the shows. [My husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top. It’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’ I know everyone’s like, ‘We can’t have schmaltzy answers.’ Well guess what? Some people still want to be inspired. Some people need to have that kind of validation and to feel like, if this person did it, then I can. And I do have one of those stories.”
