Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey Feud: Which ‘American Idol’ Judge Should Stay?

Does Nicki Minaj’s profanity-laced outburst on the set of American Idol raise questions about whether she’s right for the family-friendly singing competition?

With a career as a no-holds-barred rapper, Minaj – who is heard on the tape saying to fellow new judge Mariah Carey, “I’m not f–––in’ putting up with her f–––ing highness over there” – brings a previously unseen edge to Fox’s hit show. But her on-set antics haven’t been received well by all.

Barbara Walters recounted speaking to Carey about the incident on The View Thursday. “[Mariah] said that what you heard was troublesome, but that’s not what worries her,” Walters told the audience. “When Nicki walked off the set, people heard her say if she had a gun she would ‘shoot that b––h.’ “


Minaj took to Twitter Thursday to refute Walters’s and Carey’s claims of any threats of gun violence. “Hey yAll. Lets just say Nicki said smthn about a gun. ppl will believe it cuz she’s a black rapper. Lmao. I’ll then hit up Barbara n milk it,” she Tweeted.

“Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz,” Minaj continued. (Minaj refers to her fans as Barbz.)

In this feud between two new American Idol judges, whose side are you taking? Should Nicki Minaj just walk away from this newfound career; or should Mariah Carey just welcome her with open arms? Feel free to share your thoughts about this latest celebrity beef!

Pippa Middleton Gets Involved in Gun Scandal

Photos of Pippa Middleton have made the sister-in-law of England’s presumptive future king a worldwide sensation, but nothing quite like the shot this weekend when she was snapped laughing as a male companion in a car pointed a gun at a photographer following them in Paris.

The image shows Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looking back at the paparazzo and grinning as her friend, the driver, reaches down and aims what appears to be the gun. But now it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.


ABC News has learned that the photographer says he knew all along the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared. Even friends of one of the young fashionistas in the car told ABC News today that they have the toy gun in their possession. The Sun had reported that the Paris Judicial Police department is “poised” to launch a probe into the incident, but police told ABC News that there is no investigation, because no one has filed a complaint.

It was revealed in January that lawyers for Middleton sent a cease-and-desist letter around to six media agencies that distribute paparazzi photographs worldwide.  The letter was said to warn the agencies that unless their photographers stop following Middleton, she will pursue legal action, which could include an injunction and legal costs.

Buckingham Palace said it would not comment on the incident, since it does not officially represent Middleton because she is not a member of the royal family.

Do you think Pippa saw the incident as just a big joke for the paparazzo? Tell us your opinion!
