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?

Minaj is a no-talent attention seeker who has no business judging other doing ANYTHING! I haven't watch a single episode since they hired her. She looks and acts like a circus clown!

Mariah's been popping out #1s since her debut in the early '90s. She's earned the right to be a diva. I would be the same way if I had to deal with someone as catty as Nicki. She's clearly on AI for ratings.

Ok, I really don't give a damn either way. But Mariah has done what that Nikkie creature wishes she could do in the music business.

I am not a Nicki fan, but Mariah is a mean woman! Have you watched the show? Her demeanor sucks!! And Randy has his head stuck up her azz.. I don't care how many albums you've sold, it still does not give you the right to act that way.

Since Donald Trump is a successful businessman, I guess he "earned the right" to act like an arrogant douche too. Success and/or talent does not give anyone the right to act better than the next person. It just doesn't. MC can be as talented as she wants but the way she treats people is disgusting and it's about time someone stood up to her instead of chucking it up as "She earned the right to treat me like ****" or simply ignoring it. Nicki Minaj as a "singing" artist is trash. No doubt about it. However, Onika Maraj, the PERSON, earned my respect for standing up for herself. I truly wonder about the self-esteem of some of you all.

Wow! Real classy there! Even if I hated Mariah with a passion I would not air my business in front of the world. I would say what I had to say in private and conduct myself professionally in public. No ass-kissing; just professional. As far as Carey being an 'old bitter woman', well all I can say are these few things. Carey has survived for twenty years in a business that can pick you up and throw you down in minute. Let's see if anybody even remembers who Minaj is in five years, much more twenty. And instead of calling her names if I were Minaj I would be trying to figure out how to stay relevant in such a fickle business. Second, I often hear young women refer to older women in such nasty terms. Remember this; Mariah started in the business at the age Minaj is now. She was young too and guess what? It didn't last because youth never does. We are all getting older and so will Nicki Minaj. Minaj's act is cute right now while she is young. But can you imagine this in ten years? Madonna evolved because she knew she had to. She started in her twenties with tons of junk jewelry on. Can you imagine that now that she is in her fifties? Instead of insulting people Minaj might want to learn from them.

Nicki needs to get over herself. She needs to think before she opens her big mouth. At least Mariah has talent and has been in the music business longer than Nicki.

pfffft! Ratings must be tanking again.

If either of them really couldn't stand the other, one of them would walk out. It's what "real" diva's do.

She must be jealous of Mariah's voice, which blows her out of the water, and then some. What a disrespectful bitch.
