The feud that everyone talked about (but no one admitted to) is really going down at American Idol.
Nicki Minaj hurls expletives and curses out Mariah Carey at the Charlotte, N.C. audition stop, which was caught on tape, and while it’s tough to hear everything that’s being said, it’s very clear Minaj isn’t happy to at the same table with Carey.
Minaj and Carey, along with Keith Urban, were added to the judging roster of the FOX show after Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler decided not to return for a third season. Producers looking to spice up the bland soup that A.I. had become may have put a bit too much spice into the mix.
The bad blood between the divas went from simmering to volcanic in record time with Minaj threatening Carey: “I’m gonna knock you out!” according to the audio TMZ has obtained.
Although the audio is largely inaudible at parts, the website has offered up a transcript, of sorts, to some of the exchange. Randy Jackson is peacemaker-ish:
Nicki Get this s**t in self control. Get in control. Get in control.
Randy Settle down, settle down.
Nicki Don’t lose your head. Don’t lose your head (inaudible). Don’t tell me I’m a gangster.
Nicki (inaudible) every 5 minutes. So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a f**king problem, handle it.
Nicki I told them I’m not f**kin’ putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out.
Mariah Oh why, WHYYYY .do I have a three year old sitting around me?
Nicki I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.
MariahI can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.
After watching this mess, I’ve never felt sorrier for Urban in all my life…
