A recent clip from TMZ confirmed what everyone suspected: Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey do not get along. These two certainly would not be the first American Idol judges to fight, but according to Ryan Seacrest, it is this
bickering passion that makes the show so entertaining in the first place. Fellow American Idol judge Keith Urban agrees with Seacrest and has plenty more to say about the infamous diva battle.
Keith Urban strikes us as a rather low-key guy, so it’s surprising to learn that he’s actually enjoying all the drama between American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. That being said, Keith has no plans to jump in the middle of the battle at this point. He was fairly neutral in TMZ’s clip and he’s staying that way for the time being. While talking about the debacle with Extra, Keith joked, “I was the UN.” Nicole Kidman (Keith’s wife) was quick to correct her hubby, telling Extra that he was, in fact, “Switzerland.”
We like the analogy, but it only works if Switzerland is sitting on the fray of any battle and working as a motivational force for more fighting, not peace. Although Keith Urban is generally pretty chill in the face of Mariah Carey vs Nicki Minaj diva battles, he does admit to loving the drama. “I love it, I gotta say. I love working with passionate people. I love artists. Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It’s a very alive and very invigorating work environment. A lot of passion.”
So, who’s more, uh, passionate? Keith’s answer may not be what you were expecting. The country singer told Extra, “Randy’s the craziest…unpredictable.”We always knew that Randy was hiding some inner insanity behind that calm facade!
