I’m sure when “Idol” signed on Nicki Minaj with Mariah Carey, there’d be fireworks.
They just didn’t think it would get gangsta, as in Nicki threatening physical violence on Mariah.
Mariah told Barbara Walters confirmed that the confrontation took place and said she has beefed up security, but Nicki denied it on Twitter.
I’m not sure I feel like getting into more details. Nicki is unfortunately perpetuating all sorts of stereotypes for folks who had a predilection to dislike her. The older viewers who have kept “Idol” afloat may be seriously turned off by all this ridiculousness.
