Stepping out for some media duties, Nicki Minaj showed up at “Good Morning America” in New York City today (November 20).

The “Super Bass” rapper donned a flamboyant pink getup as she headed into ABC Studios in Times Square for her big interview with Elizabeth Vargas.

And during the chat, Nicki confessed that though there’s been plenty of drama surrounding her relationship with Mariah Carey on “American Idol,” she’s first and foremost a huge fan of the diva.

Minaj gushed, “She’s been one of my favorite artists of all time, since I can remember. She knows how much I adore her. Some of my best childhood memories with my Mom are from Mariah’s music. I can’t deny that. I can’t take away what she’s done in my life and in pop culture in general and just having one of the most amazing voices in the world.”

As for the judging table tension, “Sometimes when you are a passionate woman, you know sometimes it kind of ruffles other women’s feathers. I’m going to continue to be Nicki Minaj.”
