Nicki MInaj

Bitchy to Mariah

For Years

Nicki Minaj
was supremely disrespectful to Mariah Carey 2 years before she exploded on the set of "American Idol" this week ... TMZ has learned.

Nicki and Mariah teamed up in 2010 for a music video -- "Up Out My Face."  Nicki wasn't nearly as big at the time -- Mariah was, and we're told she felt like she was helping launch Nicki's career.



B. Scott, who's big on the Internet, appeared in the video.  He tells TMZ ... "Mariah went out of her way to be nice to Nicki and make her comfortable." But B. Scott says Nicki was a raving bitch, "making faces at her [Mariah] laced with rude comments under her breath." 

B. Scott says he blew the whistle on Nicki by giving Mariah the low down. B. Scott says Mariah decided not to confront Nicki and acted as if nothing had happened.

A source close to Nicki tells TMZ ... B. Scott is a liar because, "He works as Mariah's stunt double and of course he would say things like that.  He's worked for her for years."

B. Scott says he stayed in touch with Mariah and spoke with her Thursday night. Mariah says she wants to bury the hatchet with Nicki on "A.I." and focus on the contestants. 

Good luck with that.

This show is like beating a dead horse. It hasn't been good for years. Not since Carrie Underwood what 11 years ago. This is nothing but a ratings ploy. They will milk this for all they can.

American Idol is a kids show. Nicky is a pornographic thug, and kids don't need to be exposed to her trashy and dangerous antics.

The way I see it, Mariah is like a Long Island suburbanite pop star, while Niki Minaj is more of a street hip hop/rapper artist. I think Niki is just trying to act in her character by taking offense to Mariah's personna. Mariah hasn't done anything to her but be nice to her, so I don't think Niki has any real issue with her. Mariah probably has the right idea to just ignore her.


Niki might be looking for a fight, but I don't think Mariah is that type of person. Mariah is very professional. I think Niki wants to live out the thug life dream and prove it by picking on Mariah.


Niki should just do her own thing and not worry about what Mariah is doing, imho. This is just dumb petty bickering from where I sit.

I'm surprised Nicki hasn't blamed her bad behavior on one of her alter egos. I recently saw an old clip of her rapping ... before the implants, wigs, crazy hair, make-up, costumes and silly fake English accent. She looked and sounded great.

Mariah needs to stop dragging her old and tired lappies into this mess! We the viewers are alot smarter! We HEARD Nicki call her "your highness" and still see her as picking on the new kid. WE know she's venemous AI hired Nicki! Take the high road Mariah.

That was before Nikki's butt implants. She now looks like a freak of nature, her enunciation is horrible, she doesn't sing, she talks words, not even well if you ask me, and she wants to present herself as thug so she shouldn't complain when people say something about it. Mariah on the other hand can sign, she ay be a Diva, but she has earned that right.

OMG seriously TMZ only posting negative things about black's? Hahaha if you want positive your in the wrong place, do you come to TMZ to read positive stories...very rarely. Also right next to those negative things about black people is 5 negative stories about white people...the ONLY people that keep racism alive is a VERY FEW dumb ignorant white people...and pretty much the black population as a whole (notice I said pretty much, meaning I know there are those select few).

I am so sorry my ancestors...who knew no better inslaved you...are we good now?...NOPE

haha ooops I came to not comment on the race thing but the story...got side tracked.

Of course Nicki is difficult to work with...but I am sure Mariah is no cup of tea either. Both are divas, think of themself's highly, high maintenance...that = BITCH! At first I sorta believed the story...now it just reads BS to hype the season...booo!

I thought that B. Scott was supposed to be Nicki Minaj before a name change. I really thought that was a woman sitting there. That is very weird. It seems the gays know what men respond to in women and make themselves up to look that way. The standard of beauty for women seems to be a gay man. Maybe the world is being ruled by gay men . . .


I guess Mariah knows how Nicki feels about her but doens't want to stoop to that level of backbiting and gossip. She probably has much better things to do.

I don't care about this "feud" that is attempting to make American Idol relevant again.

They wanted crazy or they wouldn't of signed Mariah first! That woman has been shown time and again to be a diva who lives in an alternate reality where she is some kind of large child who is to be looked after at all times of the day!! I feel sorry for her husband he better be getting a pay out for living with her!

There is a lot of great talent out there who deserve a break in Hollywood who have such class and star like persona...This Nicki girl seems so undeserving of all the good fortune that has been given to her. So ungrateful and hateful. What is it about her that producers think is so Great to invest in her? I'm so turned off by her right now. I've been in the same room as Mariah Carey (when I worked for E! Entertainment 10 yrs ago) and she is super nice and long as you don't do anything to piss her off.
