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 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 ...WELL-BECAUSE ...the AutoTuned Chipmunk who looks like a my lil pony reject couldn't sing a song if her clown act persona tried! She's a prefab result of marketing... and nothing else. ... Nicki Minaj gave Lil Wayne a $70,000 sports car for his birthday. Wayne says he can't wait to get into that pricey plastic ride with airbags. And when he's done with Nicki Minaj, also the car.

If NIcki wants to burn Mariah, all she has to do is call her fat and remind her that her career was given to her after she screwed Tommy Mottolla

I would love to see all of you who commented against Nicki Minaj, sit around and be disrespected. Just because someone has more accomplishments than another, doesn't grant you the right to disrespect someone else. If Mariah was giving constructive criticism that would be something totally different than calling someone a bitch! Madonna has more record sales than Mariah, and more accomplishments. So does this give her the right to disrespect Mariah Carey anytime she pleases????? Just because you may not like someone, doesn't give you the right to disrespect that person. Mariah Carey deserves respect for her hard work, but does that mean I deserved to be called out my name and be disrespected. Both of them should have handled the situation a lot differently, especially in front of the camera.

Nicki Minaj is a classless, no-talent, fat wannabe Grace Jones which makes her diva attitude all the more baffling. Mariah Carey has more talent in her little finger than Nicki will ever have and she's been in this business twenty years. Mariah earned and deserves her diva status. Mariah will always be remembered. Nicki will be forgotten in five years. AI should do themselves a favor and get rid of Nicki now.

They are both overblown drama queens. One is an overblown diva and one is a overdone ghetto clown. I will give you this, they both have good voices. Respect is given and earned. They both apparently don't know how to act. Mariah has always had a very LONG history of being a diva and pissing off people with her attitude and demands. She is not what she used to be and is jealous of the new girl. Minaj also thinks highly of herself and is right now the top dog. The egos clashed and there you have it. Carey acts as miss prime and proper where minaj likes to add like a hoodrat. Some people don't know how to control their mouths. Sometimes people will argue it out and sometimes people are that unrefined that they choose to go right for kicking ass instead of mincing words. It is ridiculous because the show is about "singing talents of the unknown public that want to be a star", not two pieces of crap. You both were given a tremedous talent and given the breaks to make it big by the grace of God, but you choose to act like ungrateful spoiled little 3-year olds. Would be better for the show to move them to WWE Wrestling, and find true artists to uplift the show. Randy and the other one are really insignificant now.
