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.

Someone is just mad that the world saw her for the jealous idiot she is. She doesn't need a conspiracy to vilify herself, as she does it well on her own.

I wish these two supersized-egotistical twunts would STFU. This season will not be about judging professionally and compassionately, it will be all about which twunt can get the most attention.

Love it! MaTRYah has always seemed like the "fat chick in school who thinks she's popular and hot but always gets laughed at behind her back by everyone". Nicki is ghetto, but she doesn't TRY to be one of the pretty girls. MOOriah deserves to be taken down a few pegs for being so G0DD*MN pretentious all these years...and all the lipsyncing. Go back to HSN you ugly, insecure cow!!!!

Why is it that, in nearly EVERY single photo I see of her, Minge has that "I'm dangerously insane" look in her eyes?
-
They need to just fire her. She's a disgrace to the music industry, to A.I., to ALL of America. She's an embarrassment.
