Just when we were thinking we hadn't heard much lately from last season's American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, she popped up - and out - on the Web, and now on TV.
Nicki Minaj shared some racy photos of herself Wednesday (no shirt and a jacket that clearly didn't cover her chest) on Instagram. They were too sizzling for us to share with you.
But it turns out she wore the same outfit for her Friday appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' show.
"What's going on here!?" said Ellen, calling her out on the obvious nearly-breast-baring top, during the taping on Wednesday.
"Don't start," responded Minaj, pulling the jacket closed.
"What do you mean 'don't start!' How could I not start on that?" said Ellen.
After a pause, she added, "It's very nice." Then she asked, "You just wanted to button one button?"
"I mean, for Ellen," said Minaj. "No one else gets this kind of treatment."
Cracked Ellen, "Look, if you need to borrow a bra from me, you just let me know."
Minaj wasn't interested. "I don't like bras." She added, "Bras are like the devil."
She also said clearly that she is done with Idol for good. "You had fun?" asked Ellen. And Minaj said, "Yes."
But, "You wouldn't go back again?" said Ellen.
"No," said Minaj.
