Nicki Minaj is her biggest fan!

When asked during a conference call what she thought of her American Idol performance as a judge she tooted her own horn and gave herself a pat on the back.

“My best and worst Idol moments? I don’t have a worst Idol moment,” the 30-year-old rapper said. “I’ve been spectacular. Yes, I am going to toot my own horn. And then my best moment is every single moment. I’ll toot it again!”

Minaj, who showed up 13 minutes late for the first live show of season 12, explained that she’s stayed true to herself since auditions began in September 2012. She also acknowledged that her candid commentary doesn’t always sit well with contestants, viewers or even her fellow judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson.

“I didn’t know what to expect going in to the show. I was so nervous. I had a lot of anxiety. I felt like, ‘Okay, I know everybody’s just going to hate me,’” she recalled. “There were moments in the audition process that I would say to the producers, ‘I can’t do this anymore. If everyone is going to give a good critique and I’m going to be the only one being honest, then America is going to hate me. I’m going to be seen as mean.’ And the producers said, ‘Nicki, trust us, America is going to appreciate the honesty.’ And that’s all I had to go on.”

She added, “When I’m laughing on the show, I’m genuinely laughing. I can’t come up there and pretend. I just can’t do it. I can’t be someone I’m not. I can’t sit there with a phony smile on my face; I can’t do it. I’m happy that people are responding well to it. I mean, if I’m polarizing, I’m polarizing! I don’t know. But I definitely didn’t have a preconceived notion of who I was going to be on that panel.”

When asked if she’d return for the FOX show’s thirteenth season, the “Pound the Alarm” rapper refused to give a direct answer. “I like to save the mystery and the drama. I never give that away, but you know what? I always say this — and I mean this from the bottom of my heart — the people behind the scenes at Idol have been a dream to work with and I really, really honestly mean that. [FOX exec] Mike Darnell took a chance on me. Nobody else understood it. They were like, ‘Nicki who?’ and he took a chance on me. He believed in me. His daughter and his wife believed in me, and so I’m just super grateful to have been given the opportunity.”

What do you think of Nicki Minaj on American Idol? Do you think she’s as good as she thinks she is?

Judge Judy Sheindlin’s son interferes with child rape case.

Judge Judy Sheindlin’s son, Adam Levy, has been accused of interfering with a child rape case.

The accused is his personal trainer, Alexandru Hossu, who lived in Levy’s home for undetermined amount of time.

Levy is the Putnam County District Attorney. He had to withdrawal from the investigation of this horrific case which involved the raped of a 12 year old girl in 2010.

The county sheriff, Donal Smith says that Adam way trying to unduly influence Hossu’s case.

“He is apparently trying to influence and affect the investigation, which could be perceived as an ethical violation of his official duties and perhaps even as an attempt to undermine it,” Sheriff Smith said.

Levy hit back at the accusations, saying that the Sheriff made “unfounded allegations and misstatements.”

“My office acted properly in every aspect of the investigation,” Levy said.

The victim in now 15 and just recently reported the rapes. Hossu appeared in court last week after his arrest.

He is an immigrant from Russia who’s visa expired 12 years ago and is now living in the USA illegally.

The sheriff explained what he sees as Levy’s involvement in trying to cover up the child rapes.

“In my view, Mr. Levy’s comments and actions would seem to suggest that, if he could have his own way, Mr. Hossu would never have been brought to justice for his crime and Mr. Levy’s relationship with him would never have been brought to the light of public scrutiny,” Sheriff Smith said.

He also claimed that Levy was trying to distract attention “from what this case is really about: the vicious rape of a little girl by a man whom he housed and hired as his personal fitness trainer.”

Judge Judy released a statement about the situation, saying: “The sole focus of this story should be the investigation as to whether a young girl was the victim of a very serious crime.”

I hope Judge Judy whips some sense into her son.

Prayers to the victim of this horrible case. I hope justice is served.
