Nicki Minaj

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?

Look... Mariah sucks at being a judge and mentor because she is SUCH A DIVA! That being said.... She is a timeless, classy talent. TIMELESS! NO GIMMICKS! In a few years Nicki will be a guest on "WHERE ARE THEY NOW". Mariah will still be performing all over the world. It is curious seeing that ratings of AI are so low and the show finale is a few weeks away, that Nicki chooses now to go at this sad, sorry subject...again. Give it up Nicki. This is just a losing battle. Mariah is a legend and you are a gimmick. Actually, you are American Idol's gimmick to bolster ratings.

Until Nicki Manaj gets at least ONE no#1 single...let alone a grammy for what she calls music, then she can talk about Mariah's career. Difference is, people years later can still listen to "Vision Of Love" and go "that's a great song...". Will they say the same thing about Nicki's "Starships"?...hell no.

Keith Urban makes up for these conceited divas. He's the greatest judge in all of the reality shows by far.

Mariah Carey is a icon! an beyond loaded financially. I believe Nicki ghetto Minaj is the obvious hater here. I mean come on you went onto Twitter to blast a classy and sophisticated woman? instead of being a real lady in confronting her face-to-face! Nicki Please get a life, and stop with your envy simply because.You're not as loaded as Mariah! Nicki Minaj career will be expunge pretty soon. :)

I don't think I've ever heard a nicki minaj song , but Mariah is a superstar, and can out sing that chick in her sleep. Shut up nicki. All that glue from your weaves is melting your pea brain.

Nicki is an ugly skank who can't sing and has NO business judging on AI. she's a rookie and doesn't know the business. I quit AI because of her. When she's done I'll go back. Love KU!!!!'

I sure hope this worthless show dies this year... Nicki needs to be in a trash can and Carey who thinks she is above all other humans needs to get down to earth and off that crystal ball she rides in on...

sorry there miss minaj, but that ain't 'bitter'. before it was a 'slur' being a Diva actually meant something. mariah carey is a full on Diva in the old sense of the word. women ("btches" and sluts) these days do not even kno what a real woman is. don't even ask a man. he'd tell you if she spreads it for him or flashes her tlts, she's a 'real woman'. lots of females seem to believe the same. a diva is basically the living expression of 'i ain't your fkn bitch'. just fyi...

All I keep seeing is Nicki attacking Mariah. I only see Mariah defend herself. Nicki builds her reputation by acting like she is so candidly truthful but really just comes across as the crazy and insecure one in the end. I am sure Mariah is not perfect and has an ego due to her number ones and success but she has the right to have this ego as her talent (and voice) gives her the right to breathe legend. Nicki on the other hand is a mildly talented overly aggressive bitch at Mariah because she knows she will never be on Mariah's level. I completely appreciate the way Mariah handles it.

Mariah has been and will continue to be in this industry as a legend in her own right. She has even been through some **** of her own. This isn't Mariah's first day at the rodeo and Nicki is just another jealous hater feeding off of Mariah's justifiable success.
