Nicki Minaj Brings 'Va Va Voom' and 'Freedom' to 'Kimmel'

Singer performs 'Re-Up' tracks, dishes about Mariah Carey and Dubai


Nicki Minaj returned to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday night to perform "Va Va Voom" and "Freedom," two singles off her latest Pink Friday release, The Re-Up. In the interview, she talked about nearly getting arrested for hugging a cute cop in Dubai, storming off the American Idol set and (of course) her relationship with Mariah Carey. "I wouldn't say I don't like her. I definitely think she doesn't like me," she told Kimmel. "I definitely try, because I looked up to her for a long time, so I don't want to be hating this lady."
