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."

She is just made because the video showed her for what she really is: a talentless, jealous, clown!

Nicki you 15 minutes of fame are just about up. You are a 30 ( she 28 years) year old women still portraying to be a damn barbie doll. how is it possible that American Idol started off with judges such as Paula Abdul and is now ending with Nicki Minaj. She hasnt even been around long enough to give a option of good music. She is a copy written version of Lil Kim with a lace of Lady Gaga.

Ghetto, uncouth, street trash, that Nicki Minaj is. I'm not even a fan of Mariah's, and yet I feel so awful and disgusted for her. Mariah is a legend. What has Nicki done, lately, except ripoff other peoples styles (Li'l Kim anyone?)? What everlasting impact will her or her career have on the music industry, except for being one of the biggest reasons for its downfall. Stereotypical and totally classless. For that ****, Nicki, to not even have a bit of reserve or hesitation to talk to someone as highly regarded as Mariah Carey... shows how you can put a $2,000 outfit on a slut but at the end of the day, it's still a low-class slut. I can't believe how upset I really am over this. I was actually looking forward to the drama I've heard about between the two, but I thought it would be a bit of cattiness. This is far beyond. It's a total lack of class, character, respect, and womanhood. And this is MARIAH FREAKIN' CAREY we're talking about. I don't care if Mariah called Nicki every bitch, slut, ****, whore, tramp, and talentless hack in the book. Nicki should have sat her ridiculous clown-lookin' ass there, and nodded her head in humble approval. Mariah looks like a regal angel in this video. Nicki looks like a retarded tramp wearing a Little Bo-Beep outfit with an insanely stupid pink halloween wig she got at the Dollar Tree off the clearance rack. Who looks more stupid in this scenario? The ****in' nerve. Nothing but vile filth and a waste or air.

Wasn't Mariah doing what she is getting paid the big $$ to do? It's pretty obvious that these shows are no longer about how good the Contestants are. AI, The Voice, and X Factor are all about what "celebrity" they can get to judge or host. But, seriously Nicki she has that right to brag! Nobody can hit them high notes like Mariah!

Mariah seems qualified, not so sure about Nicki. I liked this show better when it was all about the contestants.
