[VIDEO] Nicki Minaj Says Her New Music Video Was Too Risque for American Idol Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.17.2013
That's why she didn't have a song on the finale...
As American Idol viewers probably noted, Nicki Minaj was the only judge not to perform on the Idol season finale last night. Many made note of this and wondered if she was snubbed because she would in fact be fired from the show, but according to Minaj it was simply a case of her new music video, which she planned on airing, being too hot for FOX.
Minaj told TV Guide that "I had already committed to the Billboard Awards to perform my single ['High School'], and so I wasn't allowed to perform it on Idol and perform it on Billboard [both]...I was supposed to premiere my 'High School' video on Idol but they said it was too risque. Anyway."
