Ah, man…just when we thought they were starting to get along!
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have been acting fairly tame towards one another since the live shows of American Idol began, but their feud, which began during last summer’s auditions, heated up on Wednesday’s episode once again.
After a little banter on live TV, Nicki took to her Twitter to continue talking smack on Thursday. “Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game,” the rapper wrote, in response to a blog post by Perez Hilton. She then added that he should, instead, be “asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter .” OUCH!
Before changing the topic of her tweets to predictions about who will get voted off tonight’s episode, Nicki threw in one more zinger, referencing the rumor that Mariah was almost replaced by former judge Jennifer Lopez for the remainder of the season. “All dem
#1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol,” she tweeted. “I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.”
Mariah hasn’t responded to any of Nicki’s comments…but we’ll have to see how this one plays out tonight. Remember — it’s LIVE!
