Nicki Minaj Wants to Be a Tough Judge on American Idol (AUDIO)

Nicki Minaj certainly has no trouble speaking her mind, especially when she’s chewing out fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey. But how will the divalicious rapper handle judging contestants on the show?

Calling in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Nicki said she’ll have no trouble dishing out tough love to Season 12’s wannabe superstars.

“I remember that some of the toughest criticism I’ve ever gotten is what stood out in my brain and what made me better,” she told Ryan. “I want them to have a real idea of the business, because this is real life...I really want them to leave with actual advice.”

Fans can get a whole lot more of Nicki unfiltered when her new reality special on the E! Network, Nicki Minaj: My Truth, airs on Sunday, November 4.

“You’re gonna see the no makeup, the crazy sweaty face in the studio, you know, the regular saying how I really feel about the people who interview me,” she said.

Does that mean we’ll hear how she “really feels” about Mariah and the other Idol judges too?

Tune in to E! at 10:30 PT/9:30 CT
