If you were waiting for Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey to cat fight each other on American Idol, your wait is over. TMZ has a video of Nicki Minaj verbally tearing into Mariah Carey during the taping of Idol auditions in Charlotte, NC on Tuesday. The tirade was so fierce, filming was stopped for the day so that both parties could calm down.
Keith Urban was trapped between Nicki Minaj on his right and Mariah on his left during the argument. Randy was on the far left side of the table beside Mariah.
What did Nicki say to Mariah? It’s hard to hear anyone other than Nicki Minaj, but here is a censored version of what she says to Mariah.
“Get this **** in self control. Get in control. Get in control,” Nicki starts.
“Settle down, settle down,” Randy is heard interjecting.
Nicki continues, “Don’t lose your head. Don’t lose your head… Don’t tell me I’m a gangster… So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a ******* problem, handle it… I told them I’m not ****** putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the **** out. Figure it out… I’m not gonna sit here every ******* minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.”
