Singer Nicki Minaj has taken a break from the music scene, to spend some time on the judging panel of American Idol, proving that she is a woman very much in demand. Now, Nicki has been talking about where she drew her inspiration from to make it to the top.
Minaj explained, “I dealt with a little bit of a dysfunctional household and my inspiration was if I can just make it out of this, I could help my family and that was my driving force and I've said it for my entire career, but it's the truth.”
She added, “Sometimes, if you attach your dreams to something bigger than you it's like it's impossible for you to ever stop, so my thing was always I've got to get my family out of this kind of life and at times when I thought about giving up, that's what kept me going.”
Nicki Minaj has been filming the new season of American Idol with the rest of the new judging panel, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban, as well as the ever-present Randy Jackson. The new season of American Idol is set to air on Fox on Wednesday, January 16 and Thursday, January 17 at 8/7c.
