Young Money rapper and newly acquired "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj recently spoke on some of the difficulties of her new role as judge on the popular singing program. Aside from her rocky relationship with fellow judge Mariah Carey, Nicki discussed how her new responsibilities have changed a typical day in her life.

"They're very long days," explained Nicki. "I'm not really used to having to show up somewhere at a specific time."

She goes on to further explain that her new job forces her to be in less control than what she's normally used to.

"I kinda been my own boss for a few years, so this is like adding discipline back in my life. This is adding that strict regime of having to do something. Everybody's affected by what I do."
