Looks like they accomplish their mission
We have a feeling that yesterday’s antics we’re just the beginning..
Nicki Minaj Says American Idol Is Setting Her Up To Be Angry With Mariah Carey
According to TMZ reports:
Nicki Minaj is FURIOUS with “American Idol” producers — telling her peeps they goosed Mariah Carey into starting beef on the set.
Sources connected with Nicki tell us … she’s convinced producers — along with member’s of Mariah’s team — are conspiring to get under her skin … because they think a pissed off Minaj will bring in viewers.
We’re told Nicki is adamant … she won’t be anyone’s puppet and if she feels she’s being set up, she vows to “cut it off at the head.” As for how, she says for starters, the next time Mariah “acts up,” Nicki is walking off the set.
There’s just one problem with her theory — we know “Idol” producers were genuinely shocked and upset by Tuesday’s outburst. Our very connected “Idol” sources tell us the big wigs were completely flat footed and they are doing everything they can to restore peace — which they successfully did Wednesday.
We hear you Nicki!

We didn’t see this coming! Looks like we were all right when we questioned whether or not this pairing would work out.
According to TMZ…
Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago — there’s only room for one diva on “American Idol.”
Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first “A.I.” taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt — not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.
One “A.I.” spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, “These girls just don’t like each other.”
You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.
Hate to admit it but we’ll be watching this season for the side-eyed glares coming from these two attention slores! LLS

“Middle America” Won’t Watch American Idol Because Of Its All Black Judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson
American Idol Nervous About Hiring All Black Judges Panel
According to TMZ reports:
Nicki Minaj may well become a judge on “American Idol,” but it will be at the expense of Mariah Carey, who we’re told hung up the phone when she was told Nicki was the top candidate.
Sources connected with “Idol” tell TMZ … Mariah was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel. Choosing Nicki would not only crush that expectation, it would add insult to injury because Nicki (29) is a lot younger than Mariah (42).
As for the composition of the judge’s panel, we’re told by no means is it a done deal. There are 2 scenarios being played out. First, it’s unclear if Randy Jackson will come back as a judge or a mentor. If he leaves the judge’s panel, there will be another spot to fill.
The second scenario … we’re told some of the honchos believe it’s a mistake to have 2 women and a man on the panel, and a 4th male judge would be necessary.
As for who’s still in the running, we’re told Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Enrique Iglesias are leading the pack.
And there’s one other thing. Sources connected with the show say they’re worried … if the judge’s end up being Mariah, Nicki and Randy … middle America might not welcome the blackout.
Clearly the show’s ratings are falling, so wouldn’t it make sense to try something new? Maybe having an all Black judges panel would give people of color more reason to watch.
I don’t know why lil Kim keep talking-Nicki has shut her up more than once.
Topics discussed in the interview!!!
On plastic surgery:
When asked why she had any plastic surgery done, Kim circled around and said, “Why would you ask me that? So many woman have had work done. Where is that coming from?”
On making up with Junior Mafia:
“Why would I become cool with somebody who has no loyalty, no love and no consistency.”
On Scott Storch:
He has so many bad people around him. But he’s a nice person.
On beefing with Nicki:
“Every single record she’s made was coming at me. She was coming at me in the Puffy record and in the Jay and Kayne record.
On why she & Nicki can’t work together:
“She wanted to be the only female out there. So when Baby said we not f*ckin’ with this chick cause you can’t stand next to her, she loved it! She didn’t want to stand next to me.” Lil’ Kim added that in the music industry men pit women against each other and Kim said, “You have to be smart enough to say yo, I don’t know what they talking about but you my b*tch.
On what she thinks Nicki should have done differently:
“Don’t come at me indirectly in records…..don’t do that. At the end of the day, she should have just said ‘I don’t care, you my b*tch, I want to do other stuff with you’.”
On Nicki as an artist:
“I’m not saying she’s a horrible artist, but she’s overrated.”
Kim said she NEVER felt like Nicki paid homage to her. “When somebody says I love you BUT I hate you…..that’s not homage.”
On if she and Nicki will ever make amends:
“It will never happen.”
On where the Nicki beef goes from here:
“You will see….everything done in the dark comes to the light.”
On Azealia Banks dissing her on Twitter:
“Listen, I think its in chicks’ contracts that when you come out you gotta go at Lil’ Kim.” She added she doesn’t know who she is and they have never spoken.
Nicki Minaj just dropped the next video off her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album, “Right By My Side” ft.Chris Brown. Check out the Barb getting laced up & gifted up by Mr. Nasir Jones (who also spits a few bars on the “Champion” track off the rap chick’s album). Oh, and their romantic kisses are indeed leaving us a little jelly…
In a cutesy video showing her on-screen love with Nas, Nicki shows her Barb-in-love side with her man who is always there for her….to give her gifts (of course) & attention. You know..the usual ish. Chris Brown also makes an appearance as he sings on the track:
Check it out below:
After a heavy promo tour for her new Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album last week, Nicki Minaj finally chilled out Easter Sunday in Miami with her YMCMB crew. And she had a fitting bedazzled 4-tier Swarovski decorated cake for her bash at Fontainebleau Hotel.
Nicki and YMCMB’s head honcho Lil Wayne partied it up alongside the rest of the fam–like Cortez, Mack Maine, Birdman and Mystikal–at Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel.
The creative folks at Divine Delicacies Custom Cakes told us they whipped up a strawberry shortcake flavored creation for the blonde Barb. And did it on a one-night’s notice after Wayne put in a request the night before.
It’s 4 tiers of fondant, edible color paints (including Nicki’s fave color pink), pink pearl Fondant bows and pink & blue Swarovski crystal bands around the cake and brooches on the bows.
Nicki’s new album covers and monogram and paint splashes like what’s on her covers were all over it too.
By the way, this was the 29-year-old’s first time meeting Mystikal and she tweeted: “Met Mystikal… Didn’t tell him I had a crush on him back in da day doe.”

Pre-Barbie footage of Nicki Minaj surfaced online over the weekend. Oddly enough, the footage shows the young Queens MC paying homage to her predecessors, Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. In the video, Minaj strolls down the streets of Queens spitting her “Dirty Money” freestyle.
This video also lends support to those who say Nicki is the butch lesbian rapper in the legendary “eat the box” clip, which you can view here.
Watch Nicki’s “Dirty Money” freestyle after the break.
MONEY MAKE YOU LOOK GOOD-DOESN’T IT?!?!?!!!!
According to Theybf:
Oh darling Nicki. Ms. Minaj went the costume-y shock-value route tonight on the 2012 Grammys red carpet. And opted for this blood red Ateleir Versace cape dress, embellished with the Versace Medusa in black beading. And she even had priestly props to boot.
Guess Bishop Long was busy.
In a split red cape with black beaded embellishments, Nicki Minaj went Lil Red Riding Hood on our asses for tonight’s red carpet. Some loved it, many hated it. Still have a feeling she’s rocking another dress underneath this. Time will tell. But you decide.
Nicki Minaj may have pushed back her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album till April 3rd. But she’s continuing releasing tracks from it.
Check out her newest “Marilyn Monroe” inside…
Every rap vixen has her obligatory moment of comparing their life to Marilyn Monroe in some way. So here’s Nicki’s. Her newest mid-tempo track is her version of an ode to the life of the late actress/singer sexy icon. And even sang a version of one of Marilyn’s famous quotes which was, “If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
You feelin’ it?
