Mariah Called Me a Bitch

10/3/2012 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1002_full_fight_video_nicki_minaj_mariah_carey_launchMariah 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."

She's even got the ghetto babe thing going on saying the same thing over and over and over and trying to yell over everybody else thinking it will get her a desired result. I see them doing this at the service counter at Walmart all the time.

Does Mariah Carey also brag how she entertains terrorists in St Barts at New Years eve parties. But doesn't give the millions back until she is caught. Nicky is right!

Call me when she does something that can be described as "MUSIC" and i'll show this Silicone Assed Freak Show some Respect,until then i cosign with Mariah and call her what she is:A BITCH!

Difference between the 2 is Mariah actually has talent. There is no comparison. She deserves all she has. Nicki is just trendy right now, but soon she will fade away as well. They should've just had someone like Mary J or Faith who actually have talent if they wanted an Urban touch to the show. Not a ghetto hot mess. What they get for letting her on the panel.

There is no way that Minaj can judge someone when she has no talent herself. She’s a rapper (I think). Mariah’s personality might be messed up, but she can sing her head off. WE ALL KNOW IT!!!

and that is why I will not be watching this season. Nicki Minaj is trash. AI came up with the best way to bottom feed. I sincerely hope this will be the last season provided they continue to bring on **choke** talent such as Nicki

I don't see how you guys can call Nicki a ghetto trash bitch. I believe mainly because she black. You don't know if she ghetto or live in poor section 8.

I seen plenty of white, mexican, asian people do worser thing and not get called all of these racist things.

What about nasty ass and trashy ass Brittany Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Courtney Love and the list goes on and no one calls them the names like.

I have seen them act way worst in public and go off the deep end in public. people must feel real big behind a computer knowing you can write anything you want. How about you guys stop being cowards.

NIcki only gets mad cuz her achievments arent nearly as great as the achievements as mariahs mariah is phenomenon and I cant say that nicki can live up to anything that mariah has accomplished. If she is tired of hearing about it . . . . . then make your accomplishments like that and maybe the attention will focus on you. until then nicki suck it up and shut up cuz compared to mariah, there is no comparison mariah takes it all
