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."

LMAO @ her hiring security and she said she has "two babies" so that's why she needed the security? Girl did you think Nicki was going to kill you or something omg I love Mariah

Eh, imo, I don't think it's too far out her to want to hire extra security. If you present yourself as unstable, people are going to take you as unstable. She's already not very secure thanks to her abusive past marriage, and this just probably worsened it.

Nicki is known for having an outrageous temper and, tbh, I'd be more concerned about a couple of her associates, except the amazingly dangerous Drake. Her stans are some seriously easily riled people, too. Almost up there with Little Monsters.

Either way, I found it a bit ridiculous too but IDK. It makes sense when you look at where she grew up, who she married, etc. I still can't believe she had no problem recording in hip hop studios in the 90s where people were actually shot but needed extra security for idol. I guess being a mom really does change you.

lmfaoooooo get em mimi!!! effortless shade!

and I know this is a lot more prominent, but how did my Jessie J post about her shading Rihanna get rejected because there was "no need to make drama" though? Like it was pretty clear that Jessie J was taking a dig at her, and for a community with a shitload of wank posts about irrelevant 'celebrities' and whatever drama we can find, I didn't think we'd be the one to avoid drama...
