I knew it would not be long before the claws came out between these two and sure enough, the new female judges on American Idol are not going to be sharing weaves or glitter any time soon.
I dub this battle…
Speculation has been building for nearly a month now over whether or not Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj got along. Mariah was signed first and allegedly demanded to be the only
diva female judge on the panel. Well, the producers of American Idol basically told Mimi to shut her hole and wooed hip-pop singer Nicki Minaj to add to the panel of Keith Urban and Randy Jackson. The two have been repeatedly asked if there is any truth to the rumors that they can’t stand one another. Both refuted the claims, but the video footage does not lie. If Simon Cowell thought he was bringing the crazy by signing Britney Spears, he might be re-thinking his decision to not pursue Mariah and Nicki Minaj more aggressively.
On the set at auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nicki had a few choice words for Mariah.
“I’m gonna knock you out! I told them, I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f*ckin’ highness over there.”
As this all played out, Keith Urban sat between them wondering which exit was closest to escape to, and Randy Jackson wondering how quickly he could get out of his chair and stop Mimi from jumping up and slapping Nicki with a Hello Kitty accessory. Producers immediately wrapped taping for the day, allowing the two to retreat back to their respective trailers and cool off.
I love it! The last time I watched American Idol, Clay Aiken was still in the closet, Fantasia still wasn’t a homewrecker yet, and Jennifer Hudson was fat. It looks like I’m gonna have to make a return to this visual/aural herpes, because nothing would make my black heart beat faster than seeing a live show where these two threw down. If it did go down?
My money’s on Mimi!
