Nicki Minaj blew up at Mariah Carey on the set of American Idol on Tuesday. We expect this from Nicki because that girl is crazy and has a wild temper but what exactly set her off?
Sources say that she lost it after Mariah called her the b-word multiple times. They said that Mariah kept talking about how many records she’s sold, tours she’s done, all of her awards that she’s won.. Then when she started throwing around the b-word, Nicki lost it.
Here’s an updated transcript on exactly what was said.
Nicki: “Think I’m playin? Think this [crap] is [an effing] joke? Think it’s a joke? . . . Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me, off with your head!” (???)
Mariah: “I am not being disrespectful.”
Nicki: “Off with your head, off with your head . . . Don’t tell me I’m insecure, don’t tell me I’m inadequate . . . you don’t know . . . I don’t feel inadequate. You’re the insecure one sittin’ up there running down her résumé every five minutes . . .Every time you take a shot at me I’ma take it back, and if you gotta [effing] problem then handle it. I told them, I’m not [effing] putting up with your [effing] highness over there . . . figure it the [eff] out. Figure it out.”
Mariah: “Why, why . . . do I have a three-year-old sitting around me?”
Nicki: “I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes and having you run down your résumé everyday. No! Goodbye!”
Mariah: “Listen . . . I can’t see my kids because you decided to make . . . to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage.”
Nicki: “Good, well then go see them now, go see them now . . . you’re boring as [eff], you’re boring as [eff].”
After the show, Nicki reportedly threatened to kill Mariah, saying “If I had a gun, I would shoot her.” Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe said that was ‘absolute rubbish’ but Mariah confirmed to Barbara Walters that Nicki really did say that. She hired extra security because Nicki ‘is unpredictable’.
Nicki is remaining cool while Mariah is slandering her. Just kidding. She’s tweeting up a storm. She tweeted, “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.”
Then, “Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz.”
“Barbara walters didn’t reach out from our team barbz. I guess we’re too dangerous. Don’t shake if u don’t wannA get shook!!!!”
“I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.”
And her final tweet, for now, said, “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.”
