Mariah vs. Nicki

How the WAR Began

TMZ Live


The Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj feud turned into full scale war after their blowout on the "American Idol" set. We posted the video everyone's talking about -- now we'll tell you what the 'Idol' divas themselves are saying about it. And, will this help or hurt the show?

Also ... Chris Brown and Rihanna are leaving little doubt they're banging again -- so, question is ... should we feel sorry for RiRi if CB strikes again?

Plus, our heated debate with Richard Belzer! He joined us to explain why he threw up a Hitler salute (again) on live TV. Let's just say, Belz and Harv didn't see eye-to-eye on this. Chung chung!

(0:00) It's one of the craziest videos we've ever seen -- Nicki Minaj going crazy on Mariah Carey duing an "American Idol" taping ... and we'll tell you what set the whole thing off.
(10:30) Breaking news -- Ashton Kutcher just got Punk'd ... with a new, ridiculous trick called "swatting." And it's not funny.
(12:00) Chris Brown and Rihanna hung out at a club ... then at her hotel. The question: Would you feel sorry for her if he beat her up again?
(16:10) Justin Bieber's ridiculous car got towed -- while he was performing at the Staples Center. So who was the dummy that parked it in a 15 minute spot?
(18:00) Richard Belzer joins the show -- you gotta see him and Harvey go toe-to-toe over Richard's Nazi salute.
(27:10) Playboy model/real housewife Joanna Krupa is NOT a prostitute ... and she's ready to sue to prove it.
(29:00) AJ McLean loves ass.
(30:30) Chris Cornell's maid says she got screwed over wages.
(32:00) Winona Ryder is back!!! And hotter than ever.
(33:20) Matt Barnes called a cop a p**sy and a fa**ot ... so which one is more offensive?
(37:10) Jason Russell -- the guy behind the Kony video -- is finally opening up about his naked meltdown. You buying what he's selling?
(40:00) We take your calls!

Hello to Flying Squirrel when you read this later on tonight.
Hope you are making some decent coin in your golf tournaments.
This place is getting boring without all the regs.
BTW, TMZ, why are you still on about Beaverboy and his puking on stage? Are we going to see the video another 15 times before the hour is up?

The Diva bietchfest on American Idol is all for ratings. They saw it worked for X-Factor with Brittney making faces and walking off the set. When will these talent shows actually be about the talent?

WT???, Belzer is going to explain his Hitler salute? Geez, wasn't that like two months ago. As if anyone actually remembers. How about talking about something relevant for a change?

Nicki Minaj is ghetto! A low budget Barbie doll.

All that glue she uses to stick on her plastic hur done got to her brain (and what little she has of it).

I wonder how long before Chris Brown smacks Rihanna and she milks it to sell CDs.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

They're both drama queens who are just trying to out-badass each other, and everytime I see that on tv I think "low rent." Btw minaj, never even heard of you til tmz posted on you the first time.

Not a fan of Mariah Carey but Nicki M. is garbage. The whole reason AI put them together on this show was for stuff exactly like THIS to happen. It's like lighting TNT and waiting for it to explode. This is exactly what they wanted. At the same time, WHO CARES. These two both have too much ego anyway. At least MC has been in the business... NM is talent-less. She has to dress like a sideshow clown to get attention and is more of a production than an actual artist. She has NO RIGHT to judge others for their talent when she has none of her own.

There was once a time, -so very long ago- when
artists made headlines for creating great music
and inspiring performances.
Now? Read this story's headline.

Cause-of-Death: Self-inflicted fools.
