Mariah Carey screaming "why, why, why" is the least of Nicki Minaj's problems on American Idol. According to the "Pink Friday" rapper, the element of time is a bigger struggle.
"I'm not really used to having to show up somewhere at a specific time," Minaj admits on her E! reality series "My Truth."
According to Minaj, being her own boss for a "few years" has taken away some of the discipline, in terms of being on time, that may be commonplace for others.
"I kinda been my own boss for a few years, so this is like adding discipline back in my life," says Minaj. "This is adding that strict regime of having to do something. Everybody’s affected by what I do."
That said, she better be working on timeliness. "American Idol" goes live this Spring and there won't be any waiting for her to show up when it comes to that.
