  • METARIE, La. (AP) — “American Idol” picked Nicki Minaj as a judge to draw in viewers, but she’s actually discouraged at least one person from watching it — her mentor, Lil Wayne.

    The rap star admitted Friday that he has yet to see “Idol” this season — or any other season.

    “Actually, I’ve never watched it,” he said, a bit sheepishly.

    Part of the reason he hasn’t tuned in to see Minaj is because she didn’t exactly sell the show to Lil Wayne.

    “When I talk to her she’s always tells me, ‘You don’t wanna watch that, you’re not going to be into it,'” he said.

    “She knows me. … It’s kind of like a catfight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I’m not into all that,” he said of the judging panel, which includes Mariah Carey, with whom Minaj had a much-publicized argument.

    “The talent on that is pretty good I heard, though,” he said.
