Diva Duel: Minaj vs. Mariah


"'American Idol' in Chaos!" screams the Daily News' front-page headline. "DIVAS AT WAR!"

Well, it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out. Will people tune in to see if all hell will break loose? According to New York's Daily News:

Nicki Minaj unleashes foul-mouthed tirade at Mariah Carey and threatens to punch her out during taping of 'American Idol'
 
The festering bad blood between the two divas — both serving as judges for the first time this season on the Fox show — boiled over in Charlotte, N.C., when they disagreed over a contestant’s performance, sources said.

Production of “American Idol” came to a halt Tuesday when seething singer Nicki Minaj unleashed a foul-mouthed tirade at Mariah Carey and threatened to punch her out. The festering bad blood between the two divas — both serving as judges for the first time this season on the Fox show — boiled over in Charlotte, N.C., when they disagreed over a contestant’s performance, sources said.

Carey had been goading Minaj for hours, sources said, ultimately calling the wild-haired, wig-loving “Your Love” singer a “bitch.”

A fuming Minaj later threatened, “I’m gonna knock you out!” .... TMZ posted a video of the incident Tuesday night, presumably taken moments after the pair exchanged barbs. Minaj can be heard ranting, “Get this s---t in self-control. Get in control. Get in control,” as fellow judge Randy Jackson urges her to “settle down.”

The blowup has “Idol” brass worried that the bad chemistry between the two judges will ruin the show — which faces stiff competition from upstarts like NBC’s “The Voice” and Fox’s “The X Factor,” featuring their own lineups of pop superstars as judges.

“It’s a major concern now,” an “Idol” source told the Daily News. “They obviously don’t like each other, but they have signed contracts and need to learn how to at least tolerate each other.”

Fox officials declined to comment....

“There’s been a feud in two days?” Carey said cryptically at a hastily arranged news conference when asked about a rumored confrontation between the pair the very first day of taping in New York City. “A feud takes a little longer,” she added.
