Lil Wayne Doesn’t Watch Nicki Minaj On 'American Idol'

By Georgette Pierre

Lil Wayne is known to be very supportive of his artists, like Nicki Minaj, but he also gets a bit lost in his own world of skateboarding and ESPN these days. During his Trukfit clothing signing in New Orleans on Friday he admitted that he has yet to see her in action on "American Idol."

According to CBS News, Nicki actually discouraged him from watching the show because she knew that wasn't his style. "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."

Wayne is in full promotion mode as his new album, I Am Not a Human Being II, is set for a March 26 release. The album cover art was revealed last week, which was designed by Kanye West's creative team, DONDA. Back in November Wayne revealed to MTV News that Kanye requested to design his album to which he had no objections.
