Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj: Yes, They Loathe Each Other

Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj

“I would like to strangle one of the divas on the panel, but I won’t tell you who.”[HP]

Say what you want about Nicki Minaj, she sure knows how to publicize a feud. On last night’s American Idol premiere she and co-judge Mariah Carey left no diva moment behind as they went after each other in ways that we are sure made Mariah long for the days of her feud-that-never-was with Whitney Houston. Poor Keith Urban never got a chance to get a word in edgewise . . . he just sat there and frumped while the two jackals ripped into each other. At one point, Minaj confessed to wanting to “strangle” Mariah. Carey, for her part, has hired extra security (no joke).

If this is what the show has become, then will anyone care who wins anymore? Is it just about judge’s outsize egos and judgments of each other?

I watched about 10 minutes of it and that was enough to take the temperature of the room. I feel like Keith Urban got a raw deal. He is really talented and the nicest guy in Country music and he had the bad luck to get this gig this year. Hopefully all the money will help.
