LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Nicki Minaj worries that she's too mean a judge on "American Idol." Minaj tells Ryan Seacrest on his radio show (on KIIS-FM) that she's "scared" to watch herself on the show. She says it's hard for her to stifle her opinions, no matter how harsh they are. She wonders if her some of her critiques were "not so nice." Minaj says she has always "grown more from the tougher criticism," so she wants to give the contestants a thick skin. And even though she might not be able to watch, she thinks fans will love the new lineup because it's "a great dynamic." Minaj says she still feels there's chemistry between her, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson despite her feud with Carey.
