The Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj Fued On American Idol Appears Very Real During The Season Premiere

Posted by: cnikky



Many people have been speculationg that the now infamous leaked footage of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey in a heated argument during the judging panel for American Idol was fake in order to draw viewers.  Well, last night the first episode of the season aired and one thing was for sure…you could cut the tension between the two divas in the room with a knife.  Nothing fake about that.  It’s sad, but true.

When Nicki wore her fluffy drum major’s hat and had it sitting on the judges’ desk, Mariah remarked:

‘I wanted to bring my dog.  We can have accessories? I didn’t know that was allowed. But that’s the last thing I’m going to say.’


One of the contestants began by telling Mariah her Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas” is the best Holiday song ever.  Nicki unnecessarily chanted through her gritted teeth:

“She’s a b*tch, she’s a b*tch, she’s a b*tch.”

Mariah’s response: “If she called me something that begins with a “B” and ends in an “-itch”, I rebuke it.”

While the judges were getting touch ups on their hair and make-up,   Mariah said, “I want to lose three pounds.”  And Nicki replied:

‘I know how you can,’ said Minaj.

‘It’s a quote from Mean Girls. If you knew Mean Girls you would know,’ said Carey. ‘I do know Mean Girls,’ said Minaj.

‘OK, who says “I want to lose three pounds.” Which character?’ challenged Carey.

‘Not Lindsay. The other one, with the blonde hair,’ said Minaj.

‘What’s her name?’ asked Carey. ‘You know something?’ said Minaj. ‘Mariah?’

‘I just want to know,’ said Carey. ‘Broken promises, right?’

I can’t with these two…honestly, it’s not a good look for either one of them and Keith Urban looks miserable sitting between the two.

In case you missed last nights episode…here are the highlights below:
