Nicki Minaj Hates Mariah Carey

I don't know if the producers wanted confrontations between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj or that the two would get along but sometimes be a little curt with each other like Simon to Paula. What they are getting is the former, and getting it viciously as Nicki Minaj cussed out Mariah Carey on camera at an audition. Wait until the show goes live, if Mariah sticks it out that long. The thing is Mariah doesn't need the money. She is doing it for more viewers and an easy way to promote records that will allow her to tour less and give less press interviews. Oh, and because she wants everyone to know she is always right. Everyone tells her she is always right.

Carey had been baiting Nicki all day yesterday and finally called Nicki a b**ch. This made Nicki lose it and it was all caught on tape.

Ha!! I'm team Mariah on this one! Feel bad for Keith Urban stuck in the middle of those two!

Jennifer H. said...

So, it's all about the judges, to hell with the contestants. They should cut the contest part out and just have Celebrity Big Brother with these assholes living together, cussing each other daily.

Renoblondee said...

I could not understand a word she said.

libby said...

At least Keith will see maybe his home life's not so bad?

NO WAY will Mariah put up with this for long.

Jason said...

For some reason, it's even funnier that this happened at a NASCAR track (Charlotte).

JoElla said...

I just can't with this niki person.

And please take the tacky ass pretend perfum bottle with you.

Maja. With a J. said...

Yeah, I'm team MC as well! I don't even know what the hell Nicki Minaj is doing on this panel. She's been in the industry for what, 5 minutes now? Say what you will about Mariah Carey, but the lady can SING, and she's been doing it for quite some time. Sit down and shut your cakehole, Minaj.

ms snarky said...

that is hilarious. Nicki is out of her league messing with Mariah. She'll be out the door.

I would love to see Nicki jump over Keith in a fit of rage. Must-see TV!

Brooke said...

Please, Mariah Carey has been singing longer than that My Little Pony-piece of shit look-a-like has been alive. She needs is not the Black Gag-Me, so stop. She needs to just go away.

misspeg86 said...

Nicki doesn't really deny that there is a feud between her and Mariah. When she was asked on Australian radio about it, she said "it is what it is". Personally I think it was a bad idea to put Mariah and Nicki together in the first place. Mariah is a notorious diva and would already dislike Nicki for being an upcoming new artist who is threatening to take her crown as the new diva (like the whole Madonna/Lady Gaga feud) and therefore would not be very nice to her and Nicki, well, she's not one to take anything lying down and won't be taking any bs from anyone let alone Mariah so uh nope, not a good combination...even for tv.

lostathome said...

Nikki just needs to GO. She isn't that talented. Anyone can sing with autotune. She's judging people at something she would probably fail at if it was her. Give me a break. Mariah belongs.

libby said...

Whoever thought of & hired Nicki is an idiota.

If they fire her, they will have to give her at least a few million to go away, AND Nicki gets credibility as too outrageous or too real for the squares of network tv. So she wins no matter what.

I hope they fire her though. She has no credibility as a judge. They need to can her and bring back Randy, dammit!

Jemtastic said...

Why MC is even threatened by Nicki is beyond me. Her whistle register was legendary (sorry, the past tense stays), she writes, produces and the list goes on.

Nicki is a Harajuku Girl gone astray that has had unheard of success; AI could have offered the job to Miley Cyrus and avoided the shenanigans.

Cathy said...

@libby - Randy is still a judge - he was just lucky enough to be sitting on the other side of Mariah - Keith must be pretty jealous right now.

Mariah has an amazing voice, backed up by a career that spans decades. Nicki has autotune. That is all.

celebrity gossip hag said...

Gotta love the media feeding into the "women can't get along in a work environment" false cliche. So f-ing stupid

SusanB said...

The judges can all get naked and do the hoo-hoo dance on stage and I still won't watch. This show is LONG past its sell-by date.

Jihane-Fatim said...

nobody is right in this situation, but if mariah was picking at nicki all day then i understand Nicki blowing up on her. BUT everyone knows mariah is a bitch, and nicki just needs to prefect her art of shade, and they will be able to coexist on the show together. they both have a lot to lose, and they both need to keep it cute!

this just goes to show, no matter your level of celebrity, you're a prop for the media to use however they want. of course they would release the part of the video where Nicki is going off. make Nicki look like the angry black woman, and mariah the angel. ppl seem to forget that Mariah is black too (yes, she's biracial but lets be real here.)

libby said...

Oh, thanks Cathy, I got lost about Randy's comings & goings the last few months.


No way will he put up with this crap either.

fancyscreenname said...

Why is Carey "baiting" her? MAN, I hate chicks like that. They love playing mind games. They tend to keep needling u until u snap. They seem to get enjoyment seeing someone lose it emotionally. They are emotional torturers. I don't dig that tactic at all. Nicking needs to learn the art of "verbal jousting". You are NOT a Diva if u cannot pepper someone with a few choice words and make them cry, whilst u maintain your demeanor. Step up ur game Nicki......

Lauren said...

First, Nicki Minaj is a rapper not a singer and if you listen to any of her mixtapes she can sing pretty well w/o autotune. I love Mariah but shes nutty and wants everyone to bow down to her. Not everybody wants to kiss ass for a living.

auntliddy said...

I cant stand that they are making women look as if they cant work togerher without a catfight. This will lead to endless jokes about how women cant get along. Thanks alot idiots, and u may both try watching or reading "half the Sky" to gain some perspective. Infuriating!!

Cathy said...

@libby - they had been planning to drop randy, but when they couldn't get a bigger name (i think they were trying to get enrique iglesias, but i could be wrong), they re-signed him at the last minute.

Lola said...

I loathe Nicki Minaj.

Amy Scott said...

Mariah is a diva and annoys the piss out of me, but she EARNED IT. Nicki Minaj is a pimple on Mariah Carey's ass and will be around about the same length of time. Carey has been a superstar for about 24 years.

Ashlea said...

This show is done

VIPblonde said...

^^This ��

Glitter said...

Good gravy, American Idol has hit skid row.

Amy in MI said...

I like nicki minaj. She's been around for quite a while ( not as long as Mariah of course ). She has some decent songs on her albums. But AI knew what they were doing when they put them together.

bubbles said...

Poor Keith!! We only see a small clip of their feud, but he has had to put up with the bitchy remarks and tension all day long ever since they started and unless one of them leaves, there is no end in sight. For his sake I hope that the stress and tension don't wreak havoc on his continued recovery from substance abuse. He seems like a decent guy and it's a shame he has to put up with this garbage.

g.strathmore said...

Mariah is such a diva. I don't like Nicki's music but I don't think she has a reputation for being hard to work with or unpleasant. Mariah does. I'm on team Nicki with this one.

Danielle said...

Sorry.. I'm not really a huge Nikki fan but I'm team Nikki on this one. Mariah didn't think anyone would throw her sh** back at her and Nikki did. Also, how is Nikki not a good singer? I really don't get when people say that about singers who actually sing. Like Katy Perry, say what you will about her and her bubblegum songs but girl has some pipes.

Caitlin Costanzo said...

Omg yes!

Barton Fink said...

Team Mariah! I just feel bad for Siegfried (or is that roy) sitting between them.

stephani said...

Heh. Keith is married to Nicole Kidman. He is used to diva tactics. This probably like vacation for him.

Robert said...

@aauntliddy: Thanks for mentioning "Half the Sky" here. I stumbled on it by accident and was riveted--sit through the whole thing sometime to put American life and all its frivolous bullshit in complete perspective. All whiny divas should hang their heads in shame.

nevermindthat said...

Poor Keith!

Me said...

i don't get the competition. is it because nikki is younger? is it because mariah makesmore money? they're both judges w/ 1 vote = equal on the show. weird.

i enjoy nikki's songs, but she's no mimi. she's catchy and fun, but will nikki's songs be played on the radio in 5 years? no. what's the comment about making friends on the way up, because you'll need them on the way down (or something). i wouldn't want to piss mariah off, too many connections. what does mariah have to lose?

Caitlin Costanzo said...

But Mariah hasn't had a hit since what? 2003?

lc said...

Yep, I do channel flip to AI and have watched finale shows. But when that frickin Nicki Minaj signed on as a judge......I swear that I am never channel flipping to AI again!

Caitlin Costanzo said...

Please that's Mariah's whole "look"
Trust me, no one forgot that haha.
Mariah is a bitch. Poor Nick Cannon.

auntliddy said...

Word, and thanks for backup!:)

car54 said...

They need to make Randy go sit between these 2 women. Poor Keith shouldn't have to put up with that.

annabella said...

seriously, they are paying those women close to $20 million each, which should be enough to make both of them shut their pie holes and act professional.

mariah will be around forever regardless, while nikki maybe a flash in the pan. time will tell.

I feel bad for keith. as far as the producers are concerned, anyone could - and did - predict that these two would not get along. so, I assume that the producers wanted the fireworks, otherwise the clip never would have been released. but it may backfire in the end if the two can't work together.

but, AI is past its expiration date anyway.

MelTheLibrarian said...

Can we have a transcript posted of what was said because I could not understand a thing!

Kim's World said...

I can imagine Mariah saying that doesn't sound good to me because I actually know tone and pitch about someone Nicki thought was amazing and then Nicki gets mad. Team Mariah

Me said...

@Mel, dlisted has the blow-by-blow posted under the video.

Caitlin Costanzo said...

Team Nicki.
Mariah is a bitchy diva, which yes, she had some hits, but not in a long time.
Nicki is new and although I'm not a fan of her music, I'm a fan of her. She cracks me up.
That's what Mariah gets for threatening to leave American Idol if they have "another black female" biotch.

jax said...

please, Mariah is fucking over rated.
Bitch can't sing live anymore without butchering the song to shit. She whisper sings every goddamn verse and barely moves her badly botoxed face.

she is a diva c-nt and i'm glad Nicki isn't going to take her shit.

stigs84 said...

I'm a HUGE Katy Perry fan but, uh...have you seen 99% of her live performances? They all suck. Look it up on YouTube. She was awful when she sang on American idol, she was awful when she sang at the YouTube awards, she was awful when she sang on x factor, she was awful when she sang like a virgin at one of the MTV awards...

BUT, at least she sings live, I'll give her that.

SilverOnyx said...

Caitlin, bite your tongue! Lol. Seriously, though her last hit was 2008. She currently is tied with the Beatles, for number one hit records. Regardless if you like her or not, you cannot deny her talent.

Alli G. said...

They both seem very ungrateful to be acting like that. All of us at one point or another in our lives have to work with others they don't get along with. We deal with it because it's only 8 hours out of a day and there are more important things in life then constantly bickering and feeding into negativity because of another person's actions or words.

I loved AI in the first couple of seasons but stopped watching. Maybe this low brow behavior will bring the ratings the AI producers are looking for but I for one have no interest in this mess. And not only that, I really have no interest in either Mariah Carey or Nicki Minaj as artists anymore after them displaying this behavior so publicly.

Thanks to who posted about "Half the Sky". It looks like an amazing read. I just ordered it from Amazon. :)

Sandy said...

So, so staged. Ho hum.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I feel badly for Keith Urban and Randy, who probably have to put up with both of them whining. I am with Maja though and think it's ridiculous NM was picked as a judge.

Fek said...

This is a fake, publicity stunt to garner more ratings. They both actually adore each other and have done recent albums with one another.

SashaJames2 said...

Mariah might be a diva, but she deserves it as she has earned her stripes. Nicki needs to learn to respect her elders in the industry.

Matt said...

I have a cousin who works for the show (not a major role like a producer or anything, but she's on set all day with them). Contrary to what people might expect, it's Nicki who has been an absolute nightmare from day one. According to my cousin, Mariah has been great and very professional and the crew loves her. Nicki is like a little kid who acts out to get attention (as if that isn't extremely obvious lol). Apparently all of the contestants who audition are in awe of Mariah and always say nice things to/about her. This is apparently driving Nicki crazy and her attention seeking behaviors are getting worse. The staff despises her and hope she's fired.

kelgela2 said...

You know what? Mariah has paid her dues. She can sing without autotune. She has decades of experience and albums all over the place.

Nicki has autotune and Lady Gaga's rejected outfits.

Nicki is lucky to have been insulted by Queen Mariah.

Jazzy said...

I also hate it when women, especially us women of color, play into this idea of not being able to get along. However, Nikki (aka Sybil's basement baby) was almost an hour late that day. If I was Mariah and this Rainbow Bright reject, who thinks she's the second coming, kept me at work late, I'd say something too.

MissCrop609 said...

The AI producer must be smokin' crack. I recall Mariah threatened not become a judge if Nikki was going to be on the show too. Mariah must have been aware of Nikki's "attitude" prior to working together. I'm Team Mariah on this issue. Nikki doesn't know the meaning of "professional demeanor".

crila16 said...

This show is becoming a complete joke and a mockery. I will NOT be watching this season, just like I didn't the last one.

Sherry said...

Auntliddy & Robert: I knew that "Half The Sky" was on both Mon and Tues and I simply could not get through the book. It was so heart breaking! But I ended up watching last night and it was STILL heart breaking without the stories of the horrible violence some women have endured. And Nicholas pinged my gaydar big time!

nettalovesrobin said...

Just want to say no one is above getting cussed out! Not on anyones side here. They r both making lots of money go fucking deal with it!

StuffinNonsense said...

I bet Keith is regretting his decision to leave the Australian version of The Voice now.

The panels and personalities and general atmosphere could not be more different.

Bubbles said...

I'm very glad to hear that Katy Perry has indoor plumbing, because that was obviously what was inferred by saying she has pipes. But she sure can't sing worth a damn!

alliwholovessomuch said...

I'm a fan of both and I couldn't understand a word either. Yes Keith most likely regretting leaving the voice I loved him on that...
