Nicki Minaj Talks Mariah Carey On Ellen!!
We love Nicki but we haven’t felt the same way about her since the video of her coming for Mariah during an I.A audition went viral… Based on what she’s had to say and what Mariah’s had to say, we can conclude that FOX signed Mariah on to the show based on her being the only female judge….. They later added Nicki and that pissed Mariah off.. Mimi wasn’t mad at Nicki at all but really irritated with the networks decision to undermine her… The tension just built up and exploded, no one’s fault but the networks. We’ve forgiven Nicki, hopefully the rest of Mimi’s fan can do the same…..
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Ellen:
“It was just two big ol’ divas, I guess,” said Nicki, who explained how it all started. “I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel, but I was saying, ‘No, I’m friends with Mariah.’ And I was like arguing with people, like, ‘Don’t believe everything you read. You’re crazy!’”
While she didn’t want to believe it, she eventually noticed the awkwardness. “I went there and I started feeling a little bit of the shade. I overcompensated by being crazier.”
According to Nicki, the dueling divas have buried the hatchet. “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. … I don’t know if she’s gotten over it, but I have.”
However, she is not looking forward to the live shows because of the potential conflict. “I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something crazy ’cause I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again,” said Nicki, who insisted she is not crazy.
