The season twelve premiere of American Idol is just around the corner but judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj still don’t see eye to eye. Are the two divas still feuding? Or have they put their differences behind them? Keep reading for more details.
Last fall, rumors of a feud between Carey and Minaj spread like wildfire following the release of an audition recording that showed the two divas in a heated exchange. Following the altercation, Carey beefed up security after Minaj allegedly threatened to shoot her.
Now, months later, and with the season premiere just around the corner, how are Carey and Minaj getting along? According to Access Hollywood, the two divas still can’t seem to agree. Carey spoke of the feud with Minaj saying, “The whole thing was convoluted. You know what it is? It’s a distraction from the show; it’s a distraction from the contestants. And I think it’s unfair to them. It shouldn’t be about any of us sitting up here. It should be about the contestants.”
Carey added, “The fighting is what it is. [However,] this is American Idol [and] it’s bigger than all of that. It’s bigger than some stupid trumped up thing. I think that it’s about the next huge talent superstar that will come from this show.”
Carey later said, “I think time sorts everything. Time heals all wounds…I did nothing and here we are.”
Minaj adds, “We’re professionals… Haven’t you ever had an argument with someone you worked with?” Nicki said to the reporter. “I feel like people…”
Then Carey interrupted saying, “It was sort of a one-sided thing.”
And Nicki fired back, “No, it wasn’t!”
Uh-oh…here we go again!
Are Carey and Minaj still feuding? Or are they just disagreeing about how the events transpired? Will Carey and Minaj ever be able to get along? Or is there only enough room for one diva on the American Idol judges’ panel? Sound off in the comments section below and tell us what you think!
