Whether it is a PR stunt to get viewers back on the show, or the two divas actually hate each other, the feud between American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey is back on this week, as the two bickered on the judges table and continued via Twitter after the show.
On Wednesday’s Idol, whilecritiquing a contestant’s performance, Carey made a jab in Minaj’s direction, saying: “Again, back to the Billboard Hot 100, No. 1 song, which you just performed — which is difficult to get; not everybody has that.”
Perez Hilton then wrote a blog post on his website with a title: “Mariah Carey BURNS Nicki Minaj on ‘Idol’,” which prompted Minaj to tweet Hilton with the message: “Bwaha! Burn? Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game. Yep, a black female rapper @perezhilton.”
Minaj continued her rant saying: “What u SHOULD be doing (wit your messy [expletive]) is asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter @perezhilton.” If that wasn’t bad enough, Nicki also kind-of confirmed rumors that Idol wants former AI judge Jennifer Lopez back on the show with a revealing tweet: “All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.”
