I do not want to point out the details but apparently American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are in some sort of FEUD. Personally, I just think that this is JUST A PUBLICITY STUNT. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a high-ranking Idol insider tells that this is all for the show.
“The Mariah-Nicki diva battle is exactly what Fox executives wanted all along,” says the source, who insists the two singers are in on the joke. “No one’s really worried. They know the parts they’re supposed to play.”
Meanwhile, former Idol judge Steven Tyler tells TMZ that he thinks the entire Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey beef is being orchestrated by the show for ratings. When Tyler was spotted by TMZ in LA, he was asked if he believed the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud was bullsh*t, he answered “OF COURSE”. And yeah, he will NEVER go back to American Idol!
