Lil Wayne Hasn’t Seen Nicki Minaj on American Idol Yet [AP]

Rapper says his protégée discouraged him from tuning in for the show

Lil Wayne may be Nicki Minaj’s mentor but he’s yet to keep up to date with her adventures on American Idol, where she’s one of the four judges on the panel. In fact, he says for the AP, it was Nicki who told him to steer clear of the show.

The other day, Lil Wayne spoke to reporters about his fashion line and, among other things, also revealed the reason why he’s yet to see Nicki on AI.

“When I talk to her she's always tells me, ‘You don't wanna watch that, you're not going to be into it’,” he said.

“She knows me... It's kind of like a catfight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I'm not into all that,” Lil Wayne explained, adding that at least he knew the contestants were pretty talented.

Another thing Lil Wayne clearly knows: Nicki has informed him of her feud with and obvious dislike of Mariah Carey. That would be the same feud they deny it exists in the video above.
