According to TMZ, singer Nicki Minaj absolutely lost it with Mariah Carey on ‘American Idol’ during auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina Tuesday. Minaj went as far as to threaten Carey, saying, “If I had a gun, I would shoot her.”
Minaj began by screaming at Carey, “I’m gonna knock you out.” In the video you can hear Minaj yell, “I told them I’m not f*ckin’ putting up with her f**kin’ highness over there.”
Carey is then heard yelling, “Oh why, WHYYYY do I have a three year old sitting around me? I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.”
The argument occurred because of the performance of a contestant and it happened with fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson sitting at the table. As you watch the video you should hear the following, which has been transcribed by TMZ:
Nicki: Think I’m playin? Think this sh*t is a f*cking joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Think it’s a joke? Say one more disrespectful thing to me, if you say one more disrespectful thing to me — off with your head!
Mariah: I am not being disrespectful.
Nicki: Off with your head, off with your head.
Nicki: Don’t tell me I’m insecure, don’t tell me I’m inadequate … you gonna get sent [inaudible] just fall back; don’t … you don’t know [inaudible] I don’t feel inadequate. You’re the insecure one sittin’ up there running down her resume every five minutes.
Nicki: Every time you take a shot at me I’ma take it back, and if you gotta f*cking problem then handle it. I told them, I’m not f*cking putting up with your f*cking highness over there … figure it the f*ck out. Figure it out.
Mariah: whyyyy, whhyyyyy …
Nicki: Figure it out
Mariah: … do I have a 3-year-old sitting around me???
Nicki: I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes and having you run down your resume everyday, No! Goodbye!
Mariah: Listen … I can’t see my kids because you decided to make … to have … to have a little baby fit and going all around the stage.
Nicki: Good, well then go see them now, go see them now … you’re boring as f*ck, you’re boring as f*ck.
The producers of the show appear to be very worried about how the two judges are going to get along for the duration of the program, which does not begin airing until sometime in January.
