Nicki Minaj

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."

How can people say Minaj is a bitch when they don't know her. None of us saw what made Nicki go off and maybe Mariah did come at her disrespectfully

Yeah I think that this wasnt necessarily the smartest move that Mariah could've made. Though she does have the experience to judge the talent as much as any other...... her personality is well different. It takes a certain type to understand her and sorry to say but she often comes across with this stuck up aire to her..... (though I dont feel thats who she is, I do feel like thats how she comes off). Nikki Minaj whether people like her or not is VERY popular in todays music and I just dont see Mariahs arguing with her doing anything for her career especially since her time has about passed.... (dont talk offense to that..... the truth is everyone comes to a point where there time is over and though they may get airplay and sell platinum off fan base but their heyday is behind them.... therefore they begin to live in yesterday)

If anything ever needed subtitles. Charlie Brown's teacher speaks better English. I didn't get a word.

That tired nicki menage is so desperate she's gotta resort to her low class pink haired talentless yelling. Bummer but all the real stars actually have talent and don't have to resort to gimmicks or trying to rip off Lady GaGa by being "cutting edge". You tired ol thang.

Tired of such kind of a news. The Show is crap. I don't care about both of them. And If I had a gun, I would shoot both bitches just in order to never hear from them again. And I would like to shoot Minaj first 'cos she is the bitchest bitch, that have ever bitched before... Just like in movie 'God bless America'
PS Pardon my french. It's not my first language.

Watch AI. She is a bitch. What's worse must be hearing her tell you that you can't sing well enough when she can't even speak or sing without sounding like she has a sock up her nose.

after watching idol it's clear that nicki is a liar.She said that it was mariah who caused her to walk off set that day but truly she walked off because she is a bitch who has a problem when other peoples opinion differ with hers.So i doubt mariah called her a bitch but if she did,she was only stating the facts as they are
