Nicki Minaj Talks 'American Idol' Exit on 'Ellen'

Nicki Minaj flashes a smile while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Friday (September 27).

The 30-year-old rapper promoted her new fragrance Minajesty and chatted with Ellen about leaving American Idol after just one season.

“You said that it was going to be a very difficult job and I laughed you off…ha ha ha, Ellen, you don’t know what you are talking about…but I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” Nicki said. “It was a great learning experience, honestly. Literally as soon as “Idol” was done I did the Billboard Awards and then I flew to NY to shoot a movie. I didn’t even get to sit back and think what did I just do? It kind of happened so quick and then it was over.”
