Forget Roman—Silence of the Lambs murderer Buffalo Bill is Nicki Minaj's new alter ego. On last night's episode of American Idol, the new judge offered this totally batsh-t critique to a singing hopeful: "I want to skin you and wear you."

Believe it or not, Minaj meant this as a compliment. She was completely floored by church-voiced Candice Glover and offered the God-fearing singer this Pagan-from-the-Middle-Ages endorsement: "I'm obsessed with you. I want to skin you and wear you."

So... expect Minaj to show up to the American Idol live broadcasts with a basket of lotion at hand. 

Witness the insanity for yourself below.
