Nicki Minaj

BLASTS Mariah

You're a Bitter Old Woman!

In case you forgot ... Nicki Minaj STILL HATES Mariah Carey ... and moments ago, she went after the diva AGAIN ... calling her a bitter old woman with no personality.

Minaj just unloaded on Twitter, following a series of heated exchanges on "American Idol" last night.  During the show, Mariah spit a little trash talk Nicki's way ... and taunted her for never having a #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.

Nicki took some shots back at Mariah on the show -- at one point breaking out a cotton swab and telling Mariah to clean out her ears.

But moments ago, Nicki continued the war on Twitter ... telling critics to ask themselves "Why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter."

Minaj also made a reference to reports that "Idol" producers were recently looking to replace Mariah with former judge Jennifer Lopez:

"All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that." So far, no response from Mariah.

Of course, Nicki and Mariah have been at each other's throats since before the season even began ... 'memba this video from last year?

SCANDAL    

Nicki, You are there to judge and critique' the contestants. Your attitude and behavior are appalling. I have not been able to enjoy the show at all this year, due to your overbearing, ongoing, self serving crap that you dish out every time you open your mouth, with that whiney voice. Let Mariah do Mariah and you do whatever it is you do! If anyone is replaced I hope it is you. You annoy the hell out of me! Get the focus back on the talented contestants, who by the way, are all more talented than you.

It seems like Nikki is the bitter one here. NO talent and will never be as successful as Mariah. From what I've read the public has the biggest issue with YOU not her.

Truth    

LOOK, TRUTH BE TOLD... FATRIAH CAREY WAS ALWAYS THE LOWER LEVEL COPYCAT OF A WHITE WHITNEY HOUSTON 2.0. SHE NEVER MET WHITNEY'S LEVEL AND ALWAYS CONSIDERED 2ND RATE. HENCE, HER INSECURITY AND BITTERNESS. MINAJ IS A WACK JOB BUT SRUSLY HER COMMENTS ARE IDOL ARE MUCH INNERESTING TO WATCH THAN FATRIAH'S LAME PC ANSWERS. FATRIAH'S LAST 2 CD'S BASICALLY TANKED. #TRUTH!!

Thousands of bloggers predicted Nicki Minaj would be the final nail in the A.I. coffin--let's hope so. For someone with zero talent, she sure is arrogant.

I'm no fan of either, but mariah has a voice and longevity. I double nicki will still be relevant on twenty years. If she is she'll be pathetic looking, like Lil Kim now, a middle aged sausage, stuffed in a leotard. She can't even type properly. Shut the F up about the whole damn thing, people still won't care about AI any longer.

"At each others throats"?
Nicki started this, NOT Mariah.
Everything she's throwing at Mariah, she's doing and acting that way. I believe in Psychology we call this "Projecting"....?

The sad thing is, these people have seem to have forgotten its a talent show about new stars...not about Nicki and Mariah..I quit watching along time ago. I think its time for the show to be canceled...IDOL and its people can take lessons from the VOICE!

After watching American Idol since Season One I am through watching. Nicki & Mariah are terrible judges and the final straw was Nicki talking about Candice's weight! This was supposed to be a singing competition and not style and body image but has become a stage for the 2 divas who need to be schooled on judging a singing competition!

knew nothing of nicki before this show. LOVE. HER. that said, i went to listen to her music... garbage. i was really disappointed. i did like one song, it was catchy. i don't know if her music style is b/c that's the audience she thinks she can make money off of, or what? but, regardless, on the show- that woman is the best judge. period. hands down. end of story. not to mention, she has clearly tried to be respectful to mariah, has talked about having listened to mariah's music as a teen and weeping to it, how great it was... etc. but, mariah is TOTALLY insecure. she is so jealous of nicki's personality and joie de vivre it is disgusting. i don't even hate mariah, but her insecurity and jealousy is so apparent. also, she comes across as dumb- she isn't, but she is not articulate, so she can't get the ideas in her head, out for us to hear. makes her sound stupid. nicki ain't stupid. she switches in and out of slang, gives good advice, etc. you people are blinded by your allegiance to mariah, but, i'm telling you- on that show, if you watch it, truth is clear as day... nicki is in the right on this one. mariah should stick with singing...

I swear, they are taking a page right out of reality tv.


Have two characters going after each other for the ratings.


Mariah I agree is fruity in the head. Minaj is just classless.


The American public ise screwed up that way. They just love to see and crave conflict.


I do however believe that these two really hate each other.


I would fire the both of them and be done with them.


Even better, I would flat out cancel the show and tell Seacrest to go back to radio and the Klan.
