Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj may be questionable for returning next season, but their beef is ongoing and seems to have surpassed any beliefs that it was merely a stunt to save ratings (especially since it just made ratings even worse). But things between the two divas got even worse last night when Mariah decided to put Nicki in her place and such a shady way reminded Nicki that she’s never had a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100. In case you missed it, here is the exchange that’s got everyone talking:
Nicki: “You must agree with Nicki?”
Mariah: “So you must think that I agree with Nicki and Keith and Randy and the entire panel.”
Nicki: “Oh, A.K.A. you agree with Nicki … ? Okay honey boo boo. Okay.”
Mariah: “Again, back to the Billboard Hot 100 #1 song which you just performed … which is difficult to get … not everybody has that (waves hands towards Nicki) to their credit … to your credit you did a great job so keep on singing…”
It didn’t take long for Nicki to get on Twitter and take some shots at Mariah’s career, and according to Nicki, Mariah’s just insecure by her because she’s achieved more than her in such a shorter time span. Nicki also possibly confirmed the rumors that suggest Idol producers are calling J-Lo up in hopes to bring her back to replace Mariah (these reports have been denied by producers).
Check out Nicki’s angry tweets that started off with her slamming blogger Perez Hilton for telling her to burn from Mariah’s on-screen shade (read from the bottom up):
