Stuck in traffic..
Perez Hilton reports that during last night's episode of American Idol, Nicki Minaj showed up late. The show came on at 8 PM and host Ryan Seacrest said that the other three judges wereh ere and they were "live and on time." Minaj was late after getting stuck in traffic on the 405 coming from Malibu. She finally showed up thirteen minutes into the show, missing Curtis Finch Jr.'s performance.
She showed up wearing a black hoodie and sunglasses and didn't mention her lateness. When asked to take her shades off, she said she "had to check her eyes" first. At one point, Keith Urban asked what was in her cup (as did Seacrest) and she replied "syrup!"
