Nicki Minaj Talks Justin Bieber Duet, Mariah Carey Feud on ‘GMA’

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj brought some sunshine to the set of “Good Morning America” when she stopped by on Tuesday. Decked out in an all-pink suit and curly pink wig, the “Freedom” rapper spoke about her performance with Justin Bieber at the AMAs, her new fragrance “Pink Friday,” and her album The Re-Up. Plus, she responded to reports of a rift with fellow “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey.

“It didn’t make me happy at all,” said Nicki, who previously collaborated with Mariah on the remix to “Up Out My Face.” “Sometimes when you are a passionate woman, sometimes it ruffles other women’s feathers. But I’m going to continue to be Nicki Minaj.”

So are the ladies ready to bury the hatchet and record a duet? Not so fast, says Nicki.

Watch the entire interview below.

On performing with Bieber at the AMAs: “That was interesting. I was surprised when they asked me to perform with him on the AMAs. Of course I was like, ‘Well, I can’t turn that down.’ … I was like, ‘It will be a good thing, I guess.’”

On her re-release: “The new songs are more gigantic to me. It’s technically a re-release, but it feels like a new album to me.”

On her judging style on “American Idol”: “I wouldn’t consider myself a tough judge. I would consider myself an honest judge.”

On a potential duet with Mariah Carey: “I was kidding. She’s been one of my favorite artists of all time since I can remember, so it’s weird that everything was blown up like that. It didn’t make me happy at all. She knows how much I adore her. Some of my best childhood memories from my mom are from Mariah’s music. I can’t deny that and I can’t take away what she’s done in my life and just pop culture in general.”

    @They’ll never thank me for opening Doors,

    It really makes me wonder what doors Nicki is talking about?

    She has opened doors wide enough for her to get through.. true. BUT has she extended the chance to any up and coming females? No.

    I will never take away from her success and everything she is done but I cant help but side eye her when she goes on an interview and says she “loves” all these veteran female rappers and raps that she has “opened doors” for all these new ones.. but when I see her body of work I have yet to see her invite a female rapper (old or new) on one of HER records. I mean actions speak louder than words.

    not EVEN Foxy who she claims to be friends with and says she is the one that she looks up to.

    Maybe one day………

    @OMG, I’m not just saying this because I’m a fan but I do think that she has opened doors . To be honest I think that if there were No nicki Minaj there would be No iggy azalea or Azalea banks .. Nicki has kept the door for female rap Open !

    @They’ll never thank me for opening Doors,

    Im not disputing that. I do believe that Nicki Minaj has revived female rap.
    However, when do you see her collaborate with any other female rapper?
    All the female rappers past have collaborated with each other at some point. Why is it that we can hear a DJ Khaled song with 300 male rappers BUT we cant hear 2 Female Rappers on one song? Again, I put this on Nicki as she is the head of the female rapper movement at the moment!
    It just seems to me like Nicki just doesnt want to share the spot light….. at all.

    @OMG, but it’s not her responsibility to make sure that other people take advantage of the doors she’s opened. What do you want her to do, make an entire album featuring all the up and coming female rappers out? The industry is about business, not about making friends. Successful male artists (with a few exceptions) are not doing that so why do we require that of a successful female? No label was taking risks on female rappers until Nicki came out. Now that the gate is open, you’re seeing alot more female rappers and that’s great for the game. I’m not a Nicki stan, I’m just stating facts. I agree that maybe she should collab with more female rappers but why would she when every chick that comes out has something slick to say? You have to look at it from her perspective as well. We sometimes forget that these celebs are just people with two more nickels than we “regular people” have. You don’t think it pisses her off that new artists sometimes use her as a target to get their name out there? Because it does happen. So her outlook may be one of, well they won’t acknowledge the fact that I’m helping them out (and she’s said this in several songs) why should I extend anything to help them? Not saying it’s right, just saying look at it from both sides…

    @georgia23,
    Your paragraph was very nice.. HOWEVER, you totally avoided the fact that Nicki can also work with people she has “looked up to” and legends in this game.
    Whats the excuse of her not working with Foxy Brown? Hell.. WHY hasnt she gotten Lauryn Hill on a track? I KNOW her label will dish out the money!
    I understand its not her responsibility to share or even make sure of other female rappers success but for someone who calls legends “old ass b!tches” and raps “I never fuck with beginners.” its a little hard to believe that Nicki has ever even considered inviting another female rapper on her songs.
    Nicki Minaj HAS revived female rap.. but at the same time.. she might be killing it. There is no diversity. No UNITY! Its a monolopy.. to whom alot of people are getting tired of!

    The fact that JayZ Wayne TI and Ross can get on a song and collaborate together to make money but females cant is just a damn shame AND like i said.. I put this on Nicki because she is the front runner of the female rap game right now.

    BTW I thought it was very funny you saying that “every new chick has something slick to say” about Nicki.

    Didnt Nicki build her career on saying “slick things” about other female rappers?

    Again… What is stopping Nicki to feature a Female Rapper she has always looked up to OR a new one she likes?

    @OMG, she always wanted to work with Lauren hill doesn’t want to work with her. Nicki has invited Foxy in one of peformance on her Tour ( they are friend).

    @WISH,
    Again.. no one answers my question.
    Bringing someone on stage for show AND actually inviting them to be FEATURED on a song on the album….
    is TWO different things!
    So I keep asking.. What is stopping Nicki Minaj from featuring a female rapper on HER songs?

    @OMG, what stops her from working with past female rappers if the hate they have for her…..nicki did what a lot of rappers do, talk shit and make cocky statements….kim eve and even missy took it personal and came at here so why would nicki extend her brand to them? as few new mc’s ABanks has been takeing shots at her form the jump and Angel Haze and Iggy don’t have the budget to work with her

    [Reply]

    Ummmmm Reply:

    @justsaying,
    See.. I would take that statement seriously.. BUT the fact that you said Eve and Missy “came at her” makes you VOID.
    Please keep the bull out of a serious discussion.
    Both Eve & Missy have said they respect Nicki and her hustle.
    The exit.. is to your left!

    @opd2, I agree. It’s too disrespectful that instead of refuting the feud w/ Mariah Carey, Nicki takes advantage of the story onto Twitter, her music (“Hell Yeah”), and her reality series for ratings.

    Nicki Minaj has met her match? No.
