Nicki Minaj Calls Threats Deluded, Dishes on Fav Idol Contestants

American Idol judge, Nicki Minaj, sets the record straight on Mariah Carey’s claim that she threatened her during their well-publicized blow-up at American Idol auditions.

“I did not threatened her.” insists Nicki. “I don’t know where that came from. But thank goodness that the producers took my side and said on record that it never happened.”

“Maybe if it happened in someone’s delusion, then that’s on them.” SHADE BACK ATCHA MARIAH.

Nicki is bored with the controversy, but she seems to understand it’s part of the game and is taking it in stride. She was a hit with the reporters at yesterday’s American Idol TCA panel, by the way…

The singer dished a bit on her favorite contestants from the upcoming season of American Idol, “I have a few girls that I’m in love with. I have one particular boy who I want to marry. (laughs) We’ll see how it pans out.”

Nicki is starting a new clothing line and plans to promote her styles at the judges table.

    lol I’m kinda loving Nicki’s responses

    I think Nicki might come across better if she didn’t look so artificial.  She doesn’t sound so strange when she talks as long as I don’t look at her.

    Why isn’t anyone asking Mariah exactly WHO told her that Nicki threatened her after she stormed out of the audition room and interview them? The onus should be on them for stirring crap up.

    I’m sick of this being dragged out. I’m only interested in the contestants.

    According to the Walters interview with Mariah, it was more than just one person who told Mariah that Nicki had threatened her. Plus, it hasn’t been reported what Mariah did to cause Nicki’s videoed outburst which was directed at the producers. I don’t know what happened, but at this point, I tend to believe Nicki.

    I really hope Nicki is the star of the panel, she deserves that after being so misunderstood

    From your mouth to TPTB’s ear, Miz. I wish. I am beyond bored with the BS that no one believes, and People trying to Stir the Sh!t. 

    All I want to know is what the judges have to say to the contestants, which ones are useful, and which need to be completely ignored, Like Randy.
    If what we get are platitudes and hyperbole, or clever witticisms, then the verdict is “useless”. On tape is a start, but the live shows will let us know who really earns their salaries – we are asking them to make on the spot pronouncements and opinions that the contestants can apply – and Iovine can’t even do that, nor is he expected to.

    IMO. Of Course.

    Funny.  I sometimes think some women wear a lot of make-up and wigs as paparazzi deflectors. I don’t think that I would recognize a wig and make-up free Nicki or Xtina on the street.

     It was reported somewhere that the people who told Mariah about the alleged threat was from her entourage.  It wasn’t anybody connected to the show.  Which is why I don’t believe it for one second.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yeah, that’s why this all sounds so fishy.
