Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey

Already At Each Other's

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago -- there's only room for one diva on "American Idol."

Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first "A.I." taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt -- not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.

One "A.I." spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, "These girls just don't like each other."

You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.

At a point now, where the producers will do almost anything to make people tune in. Lame.

Can't stand Mariah or Beyonce. They got good voices but that is all they got. They are both self centered, spoiled brats who both think the world revolves around them and need a damn reality check. The show is about the talent NOT the judges.

I'm surprised Mariah doesn't have Nick the slave holding an umbrella over her on the show.
This is what they get for hiring an ugly drunk.

How can the talentless hack Nicki Minaj call herself the judge of any talent above ant circus level? I feel so sorry that my children are growing up in this liberal RUIN of a once great country where Nicki Minaj would have never made it past the stripper pole.

Nicki has no talent, so why on earth she is "judging" others vocally is beyond me.


For this reason alone I won't watch Idol(not that I would have anyways)

Hey Now    

I really don't understand why young women like Gaga or Nicki Minaj choose clownish make-up and clothes when they look perfectly fine without it. Nobody needs a rainbow wig or a meat dress!

They actually are friends. Didn't they do a 'fun' video together before Nicki had her first TOP 10 hit in the USA? I think Nicki was featured in 'Up Out of My Face' video circa 2009 with Mariah. Maybe the friendship has soured since then, but I'm sure Nicki and Mariah will be great on American Idol together!

One judge doesn't know how to sing to give out advice to others...she only knows about Auto Tune.
