Nicki Minaj Curses Out Mariah Carey

What all television programs, scripted or “unscripted,” hope for is a colossal cat fight. So “American Idol” should be kvelling: its auditions were reportedly disrupted Tuesday after two new judges on the show engaged in a contentious fight on the panel. In a video obtained by TMZ, rapper Nicki Minaj curses out pop singer Mariah Carey at a stop in Charlotte, N.C. The audio makes the conversation difficult to understand, but according to one translation, Minaj shouts, “I told them, I’m not f–kin’ putting up with her f–kin’ highness over there.”

The site claims the fight was over a contestant’s performance and that Minaj threatened to “knock out” Carey, but that’s not confirmed. Another site claims Carey started the fight by “making jabs” at Minaj. Arguably, the best part is fellow newcomer judge Keith Urban looking rather trapped sitting between them.
