Mariah Carey Says She Didn't Know Nicki Minaj Sang: "I Thought She Rapped Or Whatever"


The 'Hero' singer has opened up about her feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki last year.

The 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' star, who joined the revamped American Idol panel alongside Nicki for the new season, has also admitted to Barbara Walters in a new interview for ABC News that she hired extra security in the wake of their filmed spat last year.

"It felt like an unsafe work environment. Anytime anybody is reeling threats at somebody, you know, that's just it's not appropriate," Mariah says in the new interview. "I mean, I've got two babies, I'm not going to take any chances, so yeah I did hire more security. I just felt it was the appropriate thing to do."

Mariah was also asked about the lyrics from one of Nicki's most recent songs 'Hell Yeah', which are rumoured to be aimed at the longtime pop star, in which Nicki raps: "I'm quick to check a b***h that's out of line, why these bums so mad that the queen on Idol?"

"Don't know. Don't know what she's singing," Mariah responded, when Barbara asked if she was the "b***h. "I didn't know she sang, I thought she rapped, or whatever.

"I think it's a classic, classy show and it didn't need this," the 'My All' singer added. "I really think it was just a crass moment."

She could answer with "I'm THE bitch," and I wouldn't even be mad.

She's actually not like that. It does appear to be real, but it started when Mariah kept listing her resume to various contestants to cite evidence and stuff about vocal techniques which Nicki got upset over because it cut into her screen time, or some other tenuously related thing. She didn't start it and you obviously don't know anything about this post or any of the surrounding context, instead you choose to stay here and stroke a multi-page hateboner. its nagl.

boweeko 8th-Jan-2013 08:40 pm (UTC)
ok I don't like this but I am definitely going to watch Idol this season just to see Mariah throwing her subtle shade. She is so good at it.
ohkkrista 8th-Jan-2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
but how is that subtle...? pretty obvs if it's in an interview w/ Barbara Walters.
