Earlier today we got to see the explosive video of Nicki Minaj cussing out and arguing with Mariah Carey during American Idol auditions in Charlotte, NC yesterday. Since the video came out, lots of new information has come out that kind of adds fuel to the fire. There are new reports that Nicki threatened to get physical with Mariah and even, again reportedly, mentioned gun use. Yikes! We may never know for sure how heated things got yesterday but based on the short video clip we’ve already seen, it’s not too hard to believe that things got even more out of hand than we know. Click below to read these new “deets” and see what you think about this really outrageous Idol feud.
Firstly, let’s check out the transcript of what was said between Nicki and Mariah, including some choice barbs that were not included on the video we saw earlier today:
Nicki: Think I’m playin? Think this shit is a fucking joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me — off with your head!
Mariah: I am not being disrespectful.
Nicki: Off with your head, off with your head.
Nicki: Don’t tell me I’m insecure, don’t tell me I’m inadequate … you gonna get sent [inaudible] just fall back; don’t … you don’t know [inaudible] I don’t feel inadequate. You’re the insecure one sittin’ up there running down her resume every five minutes.
Nicki: Every time you take a shot at me I’ma take it back, and if you gotta fucking problem then handle it. I told them, I’m not fucking putting up with your f*cking highness over there … figure it the fuck out. Figure it out.
Mariah: whyyyy, whhyyyyy …
Nicki: Figure it out
Mariah: … do I have a 3-year-old sitting around me???
Nicki: I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes and having you run down your resume everyday, No! Goodbye!
Mariah: Listen … I can’t see my kids because you decided to make … to have … to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage.
Nicki: Good, well then go see them now, go see them now … you’re boring as fuck, you’re boring as fuck.
Yeah, this is pretty intense … what I don’t understand is how two people could get so angry over a simple matter of judging a singing competition. But, apparently, things got even worse:
Nicki Minaj’s rant on the “American Idol” set Tuesday went way beyond name-calling … she threatened Mariah Carey’s life — this according to sources connected to the production. Our sources say … in the heat of the argument, Nicki said, “If I had a gun I would shoot her.” The alleged threat was not captured on the video obtained by TMZ. But this is interesting … if you listen to the audio closely, 11 seconds in you hear Nicki say to Mariah, “Off with your head! Off with your head!.”
Wow. I guess in Nicki‘s defense, “sources close to her” claim that Mariah started things by calling her a “bitch”:
Mariah Carey fired the first shots in her “American Idol” war with Nicki Minaj … calling the rapper a “bitch” multiple times … this according to sources close to Minaj. According to our sources, Nicki is adamant … in the moments before the TMZ video begins, Mariah repeatedly berated her … until Nicki finally had enough and exploded. We’re told … Nicki feels Mariah has been wasting everyone’s time by constantly praising herself instead of focusing her energy on critiquing the contestants. One source tells us, “She keeps bringing up how many records she’s sold, name dropping people she’s worked with, how many tours she’s done, and how many Grammys or awards she’s won … Nicki is tired of it.”
Honestly, this all sounds insane to me. I don’t understand how anyone could get angry over … any of this. I mean, yes, once the yelling starts it’s easy to see how everyone can get pissed (tho I don’t understand the need to talk about guns) but beforehand, I’ve yet to hear anything that would make me angry enough to blow up like this. I dunno. If Nicki and Mariah are able to keep their cool from here on out, I think things will work out for AI. If they have more explosive bust ups like this … I don’t really see how these two will be able to work together successfully all season long.
