New American Idol 2013 judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have been caught on video having a nasty catfight during auditions for the next season of the hit FOX show. After Mariah Carey reportedly sniped at Nicki Minaj with a snarky comment, the rapper slammed back at the diva with foul-mouthed rant captured on camera.
Tabloid sources are reporting the verbal spat erupted after Mariah Carey allegedly called Nicki Minaj a b**ch. Carey had reportedly been goading Minaj for hours during the American Idol 2013 auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to the New York Daily News. TMZ.com reports sources said Nicki Minaj actually threatened to “knock out” Mariah Carey in response to her insults. That part of the exchange between the two women was not captured on video.
What did make it on the leaked video is the verbal tirade of Nicki Minaj cussing and screaming about Mariah Carey and her ‘patronizing’ attitude.
Nicki Minaj Cusses Out Mariah Carey During ‘American Idol’ Audition
The audio on the video is a bit difficult to decipher, so here’s the gist of the heated conversation:
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.
Mariah: I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.
This whole catfight explosion during the American Idol 2013 auditions makes me think that rumor about Mariah Carey being furious over Nicki Minaj joining the judges panel is probably totally true. Obviously from watching these two women in action, there is no love lost between them at all.
I’m so glad I don’t have to be poor Keith Urban sitting there looking like a deer caught in the headlights between those two wild beasts.
After the eruption, producers reportedly called off auditions for the rest of the day to let the two ladies cool off. Can you imagine going through everything it takes to make it to the final part of the American Idol 2013 auditions and standing there all day only to be told ‘oh sorry, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow’? That is so completely rude and inconsiderate and I bet those divas didn’t once think about how their behavior would affect those poor hopefuls lined up waiting to see them.
When the American Idol 2013 live shows begin, I’m guessing they are going to be adding a bit of extra time this season to that censor delay just in case…
