Mariah Carey's Posse

Cops, Bodyguards,

Umbrella Holder

EXCLUSIVE

1004_mariah_carey_pcn_article
Mariah Carey got a full police AND umbrella escort on her way out of an "American Idol" photo shoot in Baton Rouge yesterday -- 'cause the only thing more harmful than angry rappers are those damn UV rays.

Carey had told Babwa Wawa that she bulked up her security team after Nicki Minaj allegedly threatened to shoot her with a gun during their blowup earlier this week ... and Thursday she proved she ain't messin' around.

Sources tell us ... Mariah and Nicki both participated in the shoot -- and even posed for pics TOGETHER. We're told the shoot was peaceful, but it's clear the hatchet is not buried.

Tomorrow, the gang has another round of auditions ... and that's when tensions really start to heat up.

Stay tuned ...

I still think Mariah probably tastes like Butter & Honey and Nikki tastes like week-old unwashed ass.

All she's missing is a butt wiper, or maybe she has one just not mentioned.

TMZ, you seem to have lost your way with this story. Most of the the outrage wasn't geared towards the fact that Mariah was or was not a diva. We all knew, even her fans, that she is a diva. She posts way more incriminating photos herself (FB and twitter), so this is nothing new. The issue is why AI is allowing a talentless, jealous, clown be a judge who is now CLEARLY A BULLY. No professional (Mariah, Randy, Keith, or most of us) should have to put up with the likes of bozo. The only reason the producers are allowing this crap is because of ratings. It's not funny or entertaining, and it is actually quite a deterrent (incidentally way more a turn off than Mariah's famously diva behavior). Case in point, people who hate Mariah are defending her, something I NEVER expected. This is family friendly AI not Hip Hop and Love. I didn't think AI could go much lower last season, but Nicki Manaj has debased the show further and shown just how truly classless she is. It is a mockery of a talent show. It IS the pathetic joke, largely due to the hack (Minaj) who is now supposedly "the best judge since Simon."
