Oh shizz, things are heating up between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey … AGAIN! One day after the two of them got into a screaming, cussing match during American Idol auditions this week, the pair called a truce the day after (yesterday). As I understand it, the ladies were able to work together successfully without things getting out of hand … that is, until TODAY happened. Barbara Walters shared on The View today that Mariah told her personally that Nicki threatened her with a gun (which was reported yesterday). Nicki caught wind of this and went OFF on a tangent on her official Twitter profile earlier today … in fact, she’s still tweeting. Click below to watch video of what Barbara Walters said Mariah told her then read the tweets that Nicki posted in response. It’s crazy, people.
Barbara Walters reported on “The View” today she spoke with Mariah, who said she was concerned because “Nicki walked off the set and multiple people heard Nicki say, ‘If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch.’” Walters says Mariah told her, for safe measure, she’s hired extra security. And, Walters adds, Mariah said Nicki has not apologized but told her she loves her ….HOWEVER, Nicki said they might be fighting again on “American Idol.”
Naturally, this Barbara Walters thing re-enraged Nicki, who decided to tweet up a storm in rebuttal:
The struggle to be a victim is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooooo / The struggle to not have the kid on the show is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooo / Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it / Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz. / Barbara walters didn’t reach out from our team barbz. I guess we’re too dangerous. Don’t shake if u don’t wannA get shook!!!! LmAooooooooooo / I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave. / I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn / Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!! / Now if u want more tea tweet #gimmemoreteanicki
Then Nicki SEEMED to be speaking directly to Mariah with the following tweets:
I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue. So I’m bout to po dot tea. / Nah. Dat tea is waaaayyyy too potent for the blogs right now. Lmaooooo. Ima keep it on COCK. Stale tea is the best t. Bwahahahahahaahhaaa / All I do is compliment u. That’s not enuff? Ur a legend, cheer up. U don’t have to run down ur resume or feel intimidated. Shady McGrady… / I wld just advise everyone who isnt there to witness what’s actually going on to #keepitzafukcute / Oop sorry brat. Shit is real in the field. Pls accept my apology. / Barbz this day shall go down in history. Cackling for the gawdts
When she says “I thought we resolved it” she is clearly talking TO Mariah. When she says “Ur a legend … U don’t have to run down ur resume” she is clearly talking to Mariah … who she then refers to as “Shady McGrady”. LOL. When I heard that Nicki and Mariah “buried the hatchet” the day after their epic fight I had a hard time believing all was forgiven or forgotten. I find it increasingly more difficult to see how these two will be able to work together successfully. Will the American Idol producers force them to try and get along (and suffer the consequences when they cannot) or will they make a casting change (which means Nicki will be the one to get the boot)? Will this war of words continue … or escalate? I’m actually afriad to find out :/
