Nicki Minaj

PISSED at 'Idol' Producers

Stop Fueling Mariah!

Nicki Minaj is FURIOUS with "American Idol" producers -- telling her peeps they goosed Mariah Carey into starting beef on the set.

Sources connected with Nicki tell us ... she's convinced producers -- along with members of Mariah's team -- are conspiring to get under her skin ... because they think a pissed off Minaj will bring in viewers.

We're told Nicki is adamant ... she won't be anyone's puppet and if she feels she's being set up, she vows to "cut it off at the head." As for how, she says for starters, the next time Mariah "acts up," Nicki is walking off the set.

There's just one problem with her theory -- we know "Idol" producers were genuinely shocked and upset by Tuesday's outburst. Our very connected "Idol" sources tell us the big wigs were completely flat footed and they are doing everything they can to restore peace -- which they successfully did Wednesday.

As for conspiracies between producers and Mariah ... we believe in the grassy knoll just like the next guy, but in this case Oswald did it alone.

How can we expect our kids to grow up and be the way some are. They see it everyday from grown ups. Producers need to get a hold of their bearings and go back to what originally started their show "RESPECT"

PLEASE get rid of Nicki Minaj! She has no class whatsoever. I just hate it when people throw out the F word all the time and I hate drama.

All fabricated for ratings, folks. The show has long since jumped the shark. Glad I don't watch anymore.

These two ridiculous divas or whatever they think they are along with the producers of this show need to remember the focus of this program. I will no longer watch this as the focus has moved from the contestants who work very hard to the judges who are providing nothing constructive to the program. I think Keith Urban should have walked off rather when stuct in the middle of this cat fight. Not ladies but girls grow up and get over yourselves. Take your trash talk and threats back to the ghetto.

First of all, Keith Urban is from Australia - secondly, he has way too much class to even be on that panel. Why did he ever consent to doing it?

NOW i Understand why they call this a reality show!!!!!!!! The REALITY is that Hollywood is filled with nothing but vapid, self absorbed, talentless bitches! The reality is has overstayed it's run as has pretty much most other shows in this "genre". There is a reason that I watch less and less TV per year.........I have no desire to watch or follow the Honey Boo Boo Childs of the world.

Puppet or Muppet? Just trying to be clear... In any case neither of these two weathy witches gets a pass. For God sakes ladies, carry yourselves with an ounce of self control and class. You are not in the hood. It's disgusting.
