Cee Lo Green

Mariah & Nicki's Beef

IS BOGUS

"The Voice" judge Cee Lo Green is calling BS on Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj's fiery feud -- telling TMZ, we're in L.A. ... practically EVERYTHING is fake in this town.

Cee Lo had just finished lunch in West Hollywood yesterday when we asked if he thought Nicki and Mariah's "Idol" fight was legit -- and he said, "This is Hollywood, California. Hardly anything's legit."

As for a possible "American Idol" ratings boost following the Nicki/Mariah fight -- Cee Lo says he's not worried, claiming, "I'm not intimidated. I think it's entertainment for everybody."

if this is a publicity stunt then they must be trying to get rid of those children and parents who HAD been watching the show. how do you explain to a child that rainbow bright wants to beat up or (kill) the singer of their favorite christmas songs? you don't, so you just don't watch/let them watch. if mariah had been trying to bring "dem babies" to work with her? well i can see that as the original problem and it shouldn't be. there ARE children in the audience yes? i just can't see anyone trying to explain this to a child. maybe nikki could change out of the rainbow bright look and go for the wicked witch from oz?

i have to agree with cee-lo, if nicki threatned mariah with a gun they wouldn't be doing photoshoots together, just a very stupid publicity stunt

It's called tinsel town for a reason. As for a ratings boost, I think people are getting more and more sick of this crap! Here's hoping this is the last season.

DEAR NIKI MINAJ::::::::::::
EVERYTIME im at the gym working out, no matter how busy I am with 20lbs on each hand, if Pandora plays any of your songs, I drop by weights and switch songs. Everytime im in the car and a song of yours comes on, I switch stations, take a deep breath and tell myself how much that 1 second of your voice hurt my gawd damn ears!!!!!!!! People like you have no talent, just a bunch of funky makeup, funky style stupid like lady gaga, you make it big but really, your talent is no where to be seen or heard! YOU look like a clown, sound like a clown yet you are making the big bucks thanks to our generation of STUPID PEOPLE. What talent is going to pop up next???? FK, atleast Bieber has some kind of skill, what skill do you have because I have yet to see or hear it.

DEAR MARIAH: GET OF YOURSELF, LOOSE SOME DAMN WEIGHT AND WHEN YOU SING A SONG, STOP SCREAMING... YOUR VOICE IS GREAT BUT THE SCREAMING IS PRETTY ANNOYING AFTER A WHILE.

Well, true, practically everything in Hollywood is fake.
Mariah and Nicki situation might have been scripted, then again it's too harsh, foul language and threats....not common script for a family-friendly clean-image show.
So it might be real, might not.
Either way I don't care, it's fun to watch reality shows and take sides in a friendly-banter kind of way, just for kicks 'n giggles, no harm done.

read between thr lines, all that crap was for ratings. so maraih need to set her fat ass down. i still remember how you treated your family, and you don't mistreat family when you make it, you reach back and pick them up. i'm not saying be their bank, but help them if you can.TRICK

I'm just glad to hear that Christina is leaving The Voice!!! Kinda sad to see Ceelo go though... Idol was terrible beofre, but having Carrey and Minaj on there took it to an entire different kind of Terrible!!!!!!

So, Cee Lo, if it's all fake, what about the contestants? What about the winners? Faked? Pre-determined?

Yeah, we thought so.

Just heard about the Mariah and Nicki IDOL drama all over the news. Now you see what happens when TV "executives" try to "milk" celebrities for RATINGS. Nicki is from the same place as me - Jamaica Queens NYC people...that is like taking a "tiger" from the wild and trying to make him/her your pet. Eventually...that TIGER will one day "attack" (if poked at) because he will return to his original nature. Nicki is just being Nicki and you will get what you hire...if she said the gun thing...it's just how she talks...not meaning it literally!

Of course it's an attempt to get ratings. Why else would the studio even send those clips out to the press? It's going to backfire on them because people that norm watch idol, aren't into the Jerry Springer trailer park rubbish.
