[article id="1651159"]Nicki Minaj's alter ego Martha[/article] is pretty protective. And also pretty flirty.
When the Pink Friday star was asked about the talks between her and [article id="1660668"]Simon Cowell regarding "X Factor," Nicki[/article] 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 [article id="1660836"]Lil Wayne protégé[/article] 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."
