Nicki Minaj’s Bizarre Twitter Rant Is Just as Weird as Her ‘Idol’ Outburst
Is this American Idol feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj for real? It seems that it might be as weird as we thought. After Minaj’s Idol outburst was leaked from TMZ, the Pink Friday rapper has gone on a bizarre twitter rant.
Nicki is apparently pissed that Mariah spoke to Barbara Walters about the incident, and accusing Mariah of playing the victim. Minaj’s Twitter diarrhea is just as bizarre as her Idol blow-out.
Nicki addresses Mariah’s claim the rapper threatened to shoot her: ”Hey yAll. Lets just say nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it.
“Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u.” American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has denied that Minaj threatened Mariah in any way.
“Say no to violence barbz. #struggleface. I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet,” continues Minaj. “Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave. I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn. Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!!”
Minaj also retweeted her fans comments, who poked fun at the gun accusation. What did Keith Urban have to say about the shout-out? Since the country singer was sitting in the middle of the feud, he said he felt like the “U.N.” and he “loves working with passionate people.”
Filming seemed to go on without a hitch after the Tuesday mishap. Could this be the most volatile judge dynamics on Idol history? We’ll have to wait and see.
