Nicki Minaj On Mariah Carey Feud: “It Was Just Two Big Old Divas”

Submitted by on January 17, 2013 – 11:18 amNo Comment

During a recent visit to Ellen DeGeneres‘ daytime talk show to promote the new season of American Idol, Nicki Minaj dished on her much-talked-about feud with her fellow AI judge, Mariah Carey. Saying she felt “shade” when she first joined the show, Nicki revealed what led to the explosive argument between she and the pop diva during an AI stop in North Carolina that was all caught on tape. She told Ellen:

“I don’t know. It was just two big old divas I guess… before I went in there I heard all the stuff that was being said but I didn’t believe it. I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel but I was like, no. I am friends with Mariah.”

“I went there and I started to feel a bit of the shade. And I just kind of over compensated by being crazier.”

Despite how much attention their feud (and allegations of a gun threat) got, the head Barb told Ellen that she and Mariah have resolved their issues, saying:

“We’re fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don’t understand is that I’ve looked up to her for so many years.”
