Nicki and Mariah Set It Off During American Idol Taping

Entertainment & Celebrities / October 3, 2012

I don’t know WHAT the producers of American Idol were thinking when they decided to have 2 divas as judges for their new season.  All hell broke loose and taping had to be stopped when Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey got into a yelling match.

The argument all started when the divas could not agree about a contestant that was auditioning in Charlotte, NC.  Carey reportedly said something under her breath about Minaj who fired back with some choice words of her own.  TMZ reported that Minaj yelled, “”I told them I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f**kin’ highness over there.”




To that Carey responded,  “Oh why, WHYYYY  do I have a three-year old sitting around me?”  She reportedly went on to say, “I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”

TMZ acquired a video of the whole showdown and although you can’t understand much of what they are saying, TMZ did transcribe what could be understood.  Minaj seemed to be doing most of the screaming saying, “Think I’m playin? Think this sh*t is a f*cking joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me — off with your head!
She is also heard saying, “Don’t tell me I’m insecure, don’t tell me I’m inadequate … you gonna get sent [inaudible] just fall back; don’t … you don’t know [inaudible] I don’t feel inadequate. You’re the insecure one sittin’ up there running down her resume every five minutes.”
Ryan Seacrest, told his radio audience today, “It got heated between Nicki and Mariah.  It was intense! I’ll be honest with you . .. It went far last night. It did get intense.”
The producers decided to wrap up the auditions for the day and reschedule the contestants that had not been seen to Wednesday’s auditions.
I just have to say, if they show this fight during the auditions I will definitely be watching!  Talk about the ratings going up!!  I just hope they can make it through the entire season together.  If they don’t and the producers air the tapes, it just may be better than Love and Hip Hop ATL or Basketball Wives put together!

That is so sad that all Idol has been reduced to is a catfight. I’ll stick to The Voice at least that show is all about raw talent.

Let's Talk! I want to know what you think?
