The media has been abuzz lately regarding the feuds between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey-the feuding pair on American Idol. They were recently filmed discussing the spat, and Ryan Seacrest even termed the vibe between the judges as “Intense” saying, “These are all very different individuals with different perspectives and different opinions that provide for interesting conversation and dialogue and feedback for the contestants.”
Mariah even told Barbara Walters that Nicki threatened to shoot her earlier this week. Mariah then took to twitter, and stated ” “Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it.” Minaj had to get a stab back in, and tweeted “I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.”
Well, it seems that the producers at American Idol have come out with an official statement tonight regarding the current judge panel.
“This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we’ve ever had. We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing, and we can’t imagine a better group to find the next AMERICAN IDOL. Despite all the accusations and media speculation — much of which is inaccurate — production is going extremely well today and the judges are focused on finding the best talent here in Baton Rouge.”
Whether this statement has been released to up the drama factor, or dissipate it is up to you. We all know that these two don’t seem to get along, and you can almost feel the tension on camera, but what will the outcome be? Will Mariah cite seniority and demand that Minaj be ousted? Or will the colorful Minaj win over everyone’s hearts?
