Rumor has it, the argument between new American Idol judges, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey was nothing more than a publicity stunt to boost the show’s ratings. But that doesn’t matter to their fans! They’re duking it out on Twitter in support of their favorite diva nonetheless.
According to MTV, rumors of tension between the two stars were circulating days before the show even began. But when footage leaked showing Minaj and Carey arguing on the set, fans took notice and were quick to get involved.
It didn’t take long for tempers to flare and rapid-fire comments flew from both sides as fans went on the defensive. Those in support of Carey blasted Minaj with fierce comments like “These Nicki fans are PATHETIC! Um, LOOK at your idol! PLASTIC. FAKE. B*TCH. Ya’ll need some RESPECT for a LEGEND!”
But that didn’t deter Minaj fans in the least as they fired back with comments like “I Love Nicki Minaj & I Will Defend Her EVERY Decision” and “I Support And Respect Anything You Do. I Adore You Unconditionally.”
While Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have yet to comment publicly about the argument, its apparent things have gotten ugly. And if the fans are an indicator, there’s no sign of things calming down anytime soon.
We’d love to hear from you. Tell us what you think. Was this just a publicity stunt to boost ratings or is there real tension brewing between the divas? Who do you support? Let us know where you stand by posting your opinion in the comments section below.
