(AP) American Idol picked Nicki Minaj as a judge to draw in viewers, but she's actually discouraged at least one person from watching it her mentor, Lil Wayne.


The rap star admitted Friday that he has yet to see Idol this season or any other season.


Actually, I've never watched it, he said, a bit sheepishly.


Part of the reason he hasn't tuned in to see Minaj is because she didn't exactly sell the show to Lil Wayne.


When I talk to her she's always tells me, 'You don't wanna watch that, you're not going to be into it,' he said.


She knows me. ... It's kind of like a catfight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I'm not into all that, he said of the judging panel, which includes Mariah Carey, with whom Minaj had a much-publicized argument.


The talent on that is pretty good I heard, though, he said.


Lil Wayne spoke Friday after signing autographs for more than 100 fans who were at a suburban New Orleans Macy's to support his Trukfit clothing line; a couple hundred more waited outside for a glimpse of the star.


Wayne said he's hoping to soon make Trukfit for women and children. Now, it's just a men's line. Part of the problem is finding the right designer.


They send everything, every design to me, and I approve or decline, and the designer is extremely OK (with that). ... That person may have designed something, and I may say I hate it. I get no flack about it, and women are different, he said, laughing. So we're trying to find the perfect female designer who has no problem with me declining what I don't like.


Lil Wayne, of course, still has his day job: His new album, I Am Not A Human Being II, is due out March 26. When asked what fans could expect, he said, laughing: Never have expectations for me, like never, because I probably will not meet your expectations. ... Just enjoy what you get, hopefully.
