A graduate of New York’s LaGuardia School Of Music & Arts, Nicki Minaj has risen to become Pop’s most renown Rapper, scoring more US Hot 100 singles than any other Female MC in chart history.
So, by way of her ever engaging public image, FOX’s ‘American Idol’ enlisted the starlet to sit on their Season 12 panel, perhaps hoping to capitalize on her experiences as a Contemporary act.
However, it seems ‘Check My Resume’ singer T-Boz is far from impressed by Idol’s decision to hire Minaj, questioning her ability to judge fresh talent.
Her remarks below…
On celebrity talent show judges, she explained:
“I don’t respect half [of] the people I’ve seen lately. How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her azz can’t even sing. Why is she there? And then…now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging? So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again.”
Nicki Minaj – ‘All I Do Is Win‘:
With her own career slowly but surely finding its feet again, here’s hoping T-Boz‘ comments aren’t misconstrued, and used to paint her as a dated star spewing what some might call ‘uninformed hate’ against the likes of Britney, Jennifer Lopez and of course, Nicki Minaj.
For, in what we thought was obvious to everyone, television has always been based on popularity, with the ‘biggest’ acts more likely to pull in the audiences shows like ‘Idol’ need to sustain.
For, as an artist who was never renown for her own vocals, we doubt Boz would turn down the opportunity to judge on any of ‘those shows’ if given the chance.
So, let us know…
What do you make of Boz’ comments?
