Nicki was busy this days before the premiere of American Idol on January 16. She went to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to have a little chat with the mentioned host of the show on January 14, and the next day went to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to speak more about the feud with the Idol judge Mariah Carey and perform her latest single, "Freedom". Below a summary of the interviews:
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
  • She told Jay about her first acting gig, where she was paid $750. But despite her charm, she wasn't able to steal the spotlight from her co-star, who was a porn star.
  • If she was president of the United States, her first order of business would be to legalize illegal U-turns.
  • About the feud with Mariah she said: "It definitely isn't a fake feud. A lot of it starts out that we're just joking, but we're passionate and we're both crazy. And then sometimes it just goes rarrr!"
  • She admitted that she has a temper, but she left it behind in 2012. "I'm on the road to recovery", she joked.
  • She talk about one of her favorite contestants, a girl she nicknamed "Big Crazy Barb."
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
  • She talk about the feud with Mariah: "It was just two big ol' divas, I guess. I heard them saying Mariah doesn't want you on the panel, but I was saying, 'No, I'm friends with Mariah.' And I was like arguing with people, like, 'Don't believe everything you read. You're crazy!' I went there and I started feeling a little bit of the shade. I overcompensated by being crazier."
  • Nicki said that both Mariah and her are OK now: "We're fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don't understand is that I've looked up to her for so many years. ... I don't know if she's gotten over it, but I have."
  • She is not looking forward to the live shows because of the potential conflict. "I don't want anyone on the panel to say something crazy 'cause I don't want to look like a crazy psycho again," said Nicki, who insisted she is not crazy.
  • While she claimed the ring on her finger is not a wedding ring, she remained coy about her love life. "I don't have anyone," she smirked, adding, "It has to be someone very secure because it's so easy to feel insecure." Though she said she is not with someone, she sounded a little liar.

Nicki also performed her single "Freedom". A very classy performance:
