Mariah Carey And Nicki Minaj Call A Truce On American Idol
It appears a diva showdown has been averted on the set of American Idol. As we previously reported, a feud began simmering on the first day of taping between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj when the head Barb arrived 45 minutes late. Her tardiness set the tone for the day with things reaching a climax when Mariah kept interrupting Nicki whenever it was her turn to critique a potential contestant. Never one to back down, the Young Money femcee fired back by talking loudly over Mimi. Although it is rumored that the back-and-forth is just what A.I. producers were hoping for when they signed Nicki up for the show, the two music superstars have decided to call a truce. According to TMZ:
“…on Monday, Mariah buttonholed Nicki and the 2 agreed … a feud wouldn’t be good for the show, so they buried the hatchet and walked down the hall smiling, hand-in-hand.
But here’s the thing. We’re thinking a feud is exactly what ‘A.I.’ needs.”
I agree. There hasn’t been anything remotely interesting about American Idol since Paula Abdul‘s loopy, unpredictable antics. If I were one of the show’s producers, I’d pull these two aside and tell them to cut the mature act, and rev up the drama!!
