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 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."

Which is the same thing Nicki does and has done for years...like three...compared to 20+...she mad cause someone is bigger than her and one a level she will never achieve?

Minaj is on minute 14...

really if someone called you a bitch I'm sure you wouldn't just sit there and take that you would snap at the person so i think mariah was wrong calling nick that but if you don't agree then go **** self

Class act, American Idol. I get that drama sells, but there is a difference between drama and straight-up ghetto thug behavior.

I DO NOT believe Nicki Minaj. I do not believe that Mariah Carey called her btch although I believe Nicki Minaj is one. I think that a whole lot of people started calling for Nicki Minaj to leave the show, and she had to give some kind of reason why she turned into such an obnoxious btch, so she lied. So what if she heard Mariah bragging on herself, she's a diva, bit deal. So that's what caused Nicki to react, then Nicki shouldn't be in show business at all, because they're all divas.
