Things have really heated up on the American Idol set between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. It seems the "Superbass" singer lost it big time, cursing Mariah and even threatening her. Yikes. Diva fight.
For some time, rumor had it that all was not well between La Minaj and La Carey on the American Idol set, and apparently those rumors had it right. The two AI judges reportedly got into a heated argument on October 2 at Idol auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina. Minaj cursed at Carey, swearing: "I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**kin' highness over there." Ouch. Later, she reportedly threatened Carey with body harm, yelling: " I'm gonna knock you out!" Although that last comment wasn't caught on the video made by the ever vigilant TMZ, needless to say, the day's auditions were "derailed."
So what brought all this on? What did Mariah Carey do or say to make Nicki so angry? Allegedly, it all started when the two women didn't agree on a contestant's talent or lack thereof. However, no one seems to know how or why their difference of opinion escalated so drastically. Or perhaps no one wants to risk raising the ire of either of these two ladies by talking to the press about the incident. However as you can see on the video here, the entire altercation took place at the judges' table. Keith Urban had the bad luck to be seated between Carey and Minaj. The somewhat more fortunate Randy Jackson was seated at the end of the table on Mariah Carey's left. Minaj is not only mad as hell, she's not afraid to let Mariah know it. Much of what she says is unintelligible, but her rant went as follows.
"So every time you patronize me, I'm-ma take it back, and if you've got a f**king problem, handle it. I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out. I'm not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday."
At one point Randy Jackson tries to restore order by begging her to "settle down, settle down." Alas, his advice was ignored.
So, there you have it. According to TMZ, American Idol's producers fear Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey will not be able to work effectively together "for the long haul." Gee, you think?
