Nicki Minaj on Working With Mariah Carey on American Idol Set: “We’ve Been Fine”

Things between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have seemed pretty civil these days, despite a blow-up last month that nearly derailed the Season 12 audition process.

Now that the Idol gang is hard at work looking for the next big thing in music, how is Nicki handling her new role?

“It’s been a new experience for me,” she told MTV News recently. “And it’s just been interesting for me to have a 9 to 5 job. I haven’t done that in such a long time...I’ve been kind of creating my own schedule for the last few years, so it’s interesting, but I love the people there, so that makes it OK.”

Does that include rival diva Mariah?

“We’ve been fine,” she insists.

Nicki didn’t elaborate further, but we’re guessing she’s trying to keep things professional since her last outburst on set.
