Nicki Minaj Calls Steven Tyler’s American Idol Comments “Racist”

Submitted by on November 28, 2012 – 11:58 amNo Comment

Legendary rocker Steven Tyler has incurred the wrath of Nicki Minaj because of comments he made during a recent interview with MTV News. While comparing the current panel of American Idol judges to the judges during his stint on the show, the Aerosmith frontman said, “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying.”

Obviously offended by his comments, Nicki took to her Twitter page to respond, saying:

“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet. I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f–k yourself and worry about yourself babe.”

Referring to her fellow AI judge Mariah Carey, who told Barbara Walters during an interview that the head Barb had threatened her, Nicki added:

“LOL lets make him a shirt that says ‘No Coloreds Allowed’ then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns. When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”

Personally, I think Steven meant that Nicki wouldn’t know talent if it bit her on her unnaturally humongous badonkadonk, much less how to nurture and develop it. Obviously, Nicki took it another way. Do you think Steven’s comments were racist, or is Nicki being overly sensitive?
