Nicki Minaj's alter ego Martha is pretty protective. And also pretty flirty.
When the Pink Friday star was asked about the talks between her and Simon Cowell regarding "X Factor," Nicki relented as Martha took over and revealed her love for the former "American Idol" judge.
"I can't talk about that, but I love Simon very dearly," the Lil Wayne protégé answered in a British accent. "He's such an amazing man. I had the pleasure of meeting him and my life will never be the same, darling. I told him that. I was absolutely in love with him prior to meeting him. And now that I've met him, it's like I dream about him every night."
Cowell, for his part, seemed equally smitten with the hip-hop star. In an interview with XXL, the music mogul raved about the Young Money MC. He wouldn't confirm whether he talked to the rapper about being a judge on the show, but he said they spoke about various business opportunities.
"We spoke to Nicki actually about a lot of projects," he said. "It wasn't specifically about this, but we were just very interested to meet her. I'm a big fan of hers. So I don't know if it's gonna be this show or something in the future, but it was definitely somebody I wanted to meet."
"I know the show is gonna be dope 'cause Simon is dope," Nicki said, back in her own voice. "And I wish them luck."
