Nicki MInaj Talks American Idol & More With Ellen + Performance / by

Nicki Minaj is still hot and heavy with her promotional trail for American Idol, which premieres tomorrow. Last night she did The Tonight's Show with Jay Leno and earlier today she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres show and had a grand ol' time. More light was shed on the whole Mariah Carey blow up.

Nicki stated that she can't hold grudges against her and that she always loved her. She also chatted about working the extensive hours on the talent show an admitting that she didn't know what she got herself into.

Ellen also tried to get the inside scoop on Nicki's boo thang, but of course, she remained very tight lipped about who it is and just cheesed the entire time. Later, she took to the stage to perform her hit "Freedom". Check it below.

Definitely one of my favorite Nicki Monaj songs!! As well as interview. Ellen just cracks me all the way up. She gave her that BFF necklace and I damn near died. I'll be looking for it on those live shows.
