Raise your hand if you’re tired of hearing about American Idol! Good news: The summer-long search for new judges has finally ended. Bad news: The drama between the divas reports are
right on schedule in full force. We have to ask, is the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj for real or just another American Idol publicity stunt?
According to Mariah, the rumors aren’t true. During a recent press conference, she is quick to point out that the American Idol judges have only been together for two days. Mariah insists, ”A feud takes a little longer to spread out.” Don’t believe the star? Well, inside sources back up Mariah.
There is definitely a lot of ego sitting at the table this year. But, for now, the general consensus is that Mariah and Nicki simply have opposing ideas about “talent” and different judging styles.
“Mariah is old-school, where everything starts and ends with the voice,” a source tells The Huffington Post. “Nicki is looking for talent that catches her eye. She is far more interested in the whole package rather than just the ability to sing.”
The source continues, “Mariah and Nicki might never be best friends, but they can work together.” In fact, Mariah and Nicki have worked together in the past, collaborating on a record in 2010.
Ryan Seacrest hints that while there aren’t many “dull moments” between the two women, they get along just fine and mutually respect one another. Ryan adds, “At the end of the day, we all hug and laugh and go home and get ready for another day.” Awww, <eye rolls> how sweet.
Tell us – For real or publicity stunt? Is drama between the divas enough to make you tune in to American Idol in January? In your opinion, who is the best and worst addition to the show?
