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?

Nicki sucks, she'll never be at the level that Mariah is at, and that's why she's so rude towards her. She is very disrespectful.

Who gave Minaj the green light to judge others when she doesn't even sing? She talks, and that's considered "music?" Minaj is nothing more than a cheap knockoff of Lil' Kim and she's going to dump on Mariah Carey? Seriously? Oh, and newsflash, Nicki: You're old, too. 30 is over the hill in today's world. Mariah earned her right to be a diva. Minaj really needs to grows up already.

Nicki Minaj will be her age in 10 years. 10 years isn't a long time. I'd rather be Mariah if I had to choose. Nicki is a nobody by design. He attitude stinks and she's ugly because of her white girl envy.

First off, Nicki aren't you like 30 something your dam self so wouldn't that make you a hop skip and a jump from being "old" too. Blasting someone on twitter is some teenage **** to boot. And it didn't take Mariah until she was dam near in her 30's to get a record deal because unlike you she is real talent.If Mariah stopped singing 15 years ago you still couldn't sell as many records as she has. People have counted her out and call her a flop before and mariah came back swinging and she will again watch, wait, and stay pressed

Nicki thinks she is bigger and better than she really is. The truth is that Mariah has always been put in a class of amazing singers such as Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, etc. Nicki will never, ever see that kind of success and recognition and I think she's jealous. As a woman, these two make me sick because they reinforce the stereotype of women being catty jealous biatches to each other. And we're really not all like that.

I guess ill be the only person sticking up for nicki. I'm not even the biggest fan but I do think Mariah is acting like a super diva and being a brat because she wants the spotlight. She made that very clear when she hung up producers after finding out she wasn't the only judge. Just because you are the best, doesn't mean you are the only person hired to do the job. Let nicki have her opinion and you have yours, but to throw your success in her face (even though I agree she's a legend) is irrelevant

Nobody earns the right to be a "diva" or act uppity. It's disgusting and what Minaj said was nothing but facts. Mariah has all the talent in the world but the way she acts towards others is simply disgusting. Even Kelly Clarkson stated "I thought you were going to be mean." (a comment heard by Carey but one that she totally ignored). That implies that there were people around her that told her of MC's mean ways. Lucky for Clarkson, the cameras were rolling. I can honestly say that Mariah Carey's music is more soothing to the ears than Minaj's but the fact remains that I would rather spend a day with Nicki than a day with Mariah anyday. No amount of talent, money, or fame gives you the right to act like a b***h to anyone. If she acts that way to someone with the same fame and money as her, imagine how she would act to you or me, "the peasants". MC wouldn't come within 2 feet of the people here defending her and that is simply nothing but facts.
