Is Nicki Minaj Getting a Reality Show? Maybe ... and Maybe Not Billboard, Perez Hilton
Rapper and “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj officially says she’s “considering” a reality show, but according to one report it’s a done deal.
Minaj sat down for an interview earlier this week with Perez Hilton, who asked whether Minaj is working on a show besides “Idol.” Said Minaj, according to Billboard: “That I’m going to keep a secret for now.”
She added: "I am still considering" the idea of a reality show.
"I will say that I find the more people see, is the more they understand, and then it's the more they like you," Minaj said, according to Billboard. "When you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person. I'm not running away from it anymore."
PerezHilton.com subsequently reported that the reality show is happening. Citing sources close to Minaj, the site says a Minaj series is coming to the E! network -- and is already filming.
Besides her "American Idol" judging gig, Minaj has an array of current ventures, including a new perfume, an upcoming fashion line and an album rerelease, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," Billboard notes.
