Nicki Minaj’s harsh critiquing of various American Idol contestants often angers longtime fans of the show. But this time, the rapper-singer is attracting controversy for a completely different reason — her wardrobe! While Nicki’s fashion choices have always been a bit out there, a recent cleavage-bearing ensemble has critics once again wondering whether the judge is appropriate for the panel on a supposedly family-friendly show.
Always a prime target for the fashion police, Nicki Minaj is once again attracting criticism for the way she dresses on American Idol. The latest outfit to create such heated controversy? A low-cut red dress that showed off plenty of cleavage. No, cleavage is not particularly unusual for Nicki, who always likes to push the boundaries by showing lots of skin and keeping what clothing she does wear super colorful. But this outfit was not worn at a concert performance or even on the red carpet at an awards show. Nicki wore her low-cut red dress while sitting on the judging panel for American Idol, which, as critics point out, is supposed to be a family-friendly show. Of course, as Nicki’s defenders have noted, Mariah has worn her fair share of revealing outfits as well, but rarely has received the same level of criticism as her fellow judge.
We doubt Nicki sees anything wrong with her Idol outfit, although the celeb does confess to occasionally ditching her sexier outfits for something a little more conservative — for example, sweater dresses. In fact, dresses are the it item for the star at the moment. In a recent interview, Nicki explained, “I have been doing a lot of dresses lately, and I feel more confident when I wear dresses…my fans have really responded to it.”
