Nicki Minaj Slams Mariah Carey Again

May 10, 2013 12:45 PM by Lisa Princ

There is no denying the tension between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the American Idol panel, with one recent spat even sparking a bash-fest by Minaj on Twitter. And Nicki just can’t seem to keep her mouth shut ever since. In fact, in a new interview with Ryan Seacrest, Nicki Minaj was, once again, bashing Mariah Carey.

After recently bashing Mariah Carey on Twitter, Nicki Minaj is at it again! This time, Minaj had some not-so-nice things to say about her fellow American Idol judge when she spoke to Ryan Seacrest recently. When asked about the tension with Carey, Minaj told Seacrest: “I really thought we were friends. But God forbid you’re quick on your toes or make someone laugh. But then you’re making another person feel insecure?”

Nicki also claims that she has no idea what she ever did to make Mariah Carey feel that way. “Imagine meeting someone you’ve loved your whole life…then, all of sudden feeling like you did something horrible to them, but you just don’t know what you did. That’s what my relationship with Mariah is like,” Nicki explained.

Unfortunately, when Nicki Minaj signed on for Idol, she had high hopes that the panel would be fun with Mariah and herself on it. Instead, we’ve watched tension all season long, and ratings that are steadily declining.

What do you think about Nicki Minaj’s comments about Mariah Carey? Is she right on the money? Who is the bigger diva – Minaj or Carey? And more importantly, should they return next season to American Idol? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.

    If Idol would have kept the panel as Mariah, Keith and Randy it would have been a knock out hit and good ratings…Nikki on board before it even aired was a sign of what was to come. Fox was was wrong with adding nikki, and i think when they realized what they did it was too late viewers literately did not watch because of nikki, so is that mariah’s fault? no, it’s the producers fault….how can a great talent like mariah screw up idol? she remained classy and kept her mouth shut while nikki rambled on….idol needs to take some responsibility with what they did….

    I think that Nicki should stay on American Idol. Mariah has been the one at fault for these arguments lately and people take it out on Nicki. When I seen Mariah’s foolish, and let’s face it trying to relive her youth video, ‘Beautiful’ on American Idol a few nights ago, I knew that there was going to be another twitter war. And let’s face it that video was the worst I’ve ever seen and it was basically like watching porn. Mariah was basically feeling herself up and wearing nothing, while she’s at the age of 43. I think that Mariah should seriously take a look at the ‘diva’ image that she’s presenting to people. I know that if I acted the way that Mariah does I would be thoroughly embarrassed. Nicki, while she can ramble, so can Mariah, and they’re both just stating their opinion. It’s Nicki’s twitter, and she has every right to rant or vent on it. If you don’t like it then simply don’t follow it.

    Nicki should come back! Shes been an amazing judge from the start giving the right critique every week! I really did hope they would swap Mariah with J-Lo because Nicki and J-Lo get on. Also, Mariah is always sugar coating the contestants, shes not giving them any criticism on their performances! I mean they cant all be good! In my opinion i think a good judging panel would be Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift(maybe?), Chris Brown & Simon Cowell….

    Nicki Minaj is not talented. Mariah Carey is talent! Nicki Minaj speaks like a five year old with her little lady bug crap. Mariah Carey is class and has the best voice on the planet. Nicki Minaj is talentless and should not be judging people who sing a 100% better than her. She can’t even sing. How did she get a record deal never mind telling people how to sing and what they did wrong. I hate that she makes faces at Mariah the whole show. I love Randy, Ryan and Keith and Mariah.

    I couldn’t agree more with the first comment. Keith, Mariah and Randy would have been a perfect judging panel, but Nicki just turned off too many people from watching.

    But God forbid when Mariah’s quick on her toes when Nicki comes after her, make the entire nation laugh, leaves it all on the floor and moves on with her life. But than Mariah’s making Nicki feel insecure and bitter on twitter?
    Nicki the clown never seizes to amuse me. First she absorbed whatever was left to absorb out of Lil’ Kim. Now she’s trying to overpower Mariah Carey.

    Well I think Nicki Minaj should stay on American idol, I mean she tells the contestants the truth on what they should do and what not. however im sure nicki wasn’t looking forward for arguments on the show with Mariah carey she did start it right? Nicki is a woman who defends herself and not to sit there and accept things that she is not too happy to hear and nicki did say it herself that she wanted Mariah and herself to be friends well it did not turn out the way she expected. the two comments above I didn’t agree with the two comments above, nicki has talent and that is to rap she did win three awards in a row and is expecting one this year. if I had to pick of who to leave idol I would say Mariah.

    I personally dont mind either one of the girls (personality wise) but with music, Mariah is a 10 times better artist than Nicki will ever be, and i think Nicki should respect Mariah for that and honour that. I agree with one of the comments below here stating how did Nicki even get a recording contract?? Seriously, it amazes me in this world that with songs like hers (i only remember one song of hers) that she could actually be successful and have made millions of dollars. I could see how Mariah is bitter with her, nicki is pretty talentless….. id take nicki off the panel for sure.

    Its always Nicki going off in interviews and twitter about Mariah – that in itself shows who the insecure one is.

    I’d like to see Idol go back to 3 judges and just have guest judges every week so we get to hear different points of view from others in the music industry.

    Let me start by saying American Idol is suppose to be for the chance for someone to live their dream and not about the judges bashing one another, I know that reality is that not all people are going to get along or agree on things but it is their responsibilities as judge to deliver critics and help the contestant and not display the highly unprofessionalizm that the both of these two judges they need to act like pros on screen and keep this about the contestants, I have watched this show from the very beginning and this year I considered not watching because of this conflict and tension, but because of the extordinary talent I watched to support them my one last comment here to the to feuding ladies ” grow the hell up” and remember if it was not for the man upstairs you would not have what you have, and he can take it as well as he gave it

    I have watched American Idol every year since the first one this year. The Fued has drove me away. I sure hope they get decent judges or I have watched my last episode. But who am I? Just one viewer.

    Nicki’s the most at fault because she started the whole thing by threatening to shoot Mariah. However, even though I love Mariah, she needs to get a sense of humor and stop taking herself so seriously. I really think the producers should have DEMANDED that Mariah and Nicki interact and look at each other out of respect. They only look at each other when they’re fighting and it’s really immature and uncomfortable to watch.

    I feel like Margaret. I think this will be my last time to watch unless they get new judges. Keep Keith, and bring back J Lo and Steve Tyler. Randy is boring so is Mariah, they really don’t help anyone. Randy says the same thing over and over every year, dawg, and there in it to win it.

    I think Nicki and Keith should stay and the producers should bring in 2 new people to replace Mariah and Randy. Nicki is my favorite judge; her commentary is insightful, honest, passionate, and entertaining. Nicki is also very talented, and respect her hard work in the industry. I look forward to hearing from her most. Mariah seems bored and her commentary rambles on. Keith, Nicki, Michael Buble and Miranda Lambert would be a dream panel!

    I thought Nicki offered lots of good advise this year – I would say keep Nicki & Keith – then bring back Steven Tyler and JoLo…….
    Would be great – if you are looking for new then have Nicki & Keith and find two that would compliment them – they both had lots of refreshing ideas and seemed to help the contestants each and every week…….

    KEEP KEITH for sure. Mariah is too into herself, she was sickening. When and if Keith goes, I go (not that anyone cares) but Keith was so knowledgable, he knows all kinds of music and he is so talented.

    It’s amazing how individuals,especially “celebs” think that youth will always be on their side. Just fifteen to twenty years ago Mariah was about 23 and Madonna was 34. Nicki Minaj was 10 years old. During that time, Mariah was in her glory with number one hits. It was also at that time that she and Madonna had some kind of rift going on. Just type in Mariah and Madonna in the browser. After reviewing these links, it was obvious to me that these “celebs” were unpolished unrefined and definitely not classy during the peak of their stardom In fact, it seems that they became polished, refined and classy as they matured and experienced life. Life in terms of challenges, marriage,children and all that comes with that. Rising celebs should use these examples as a lesson to learn because it the next 15 to 20 years, another young star will emerge. For some reason, individuals whether they are successful in business, government, entertainment, etc. never exits the stage at the top of their game; they always seem to linger around and bow out less than in grace when they are at the twilight of their careers. Just saying!

    Nicki should leave she is a freak just like most of the competitors on American Idol were. Guys dressing like girls, freaks from other countries. The show was an insult this year and Nicki voted for these people. Simon wouldn’t have this.
