YES! YES YES YES YES!! I am here for this! Me – who has never ever watched one single, entire episode of American Idol - will be tuning in with my Bon Bons and vodka/soda because this is what we’ve all been really waiting for from reality TV.
Long before Nicki Minaj was confirmed as a host for this season’s American Idol, rumors of a serious feud between her and Mariah Carey. Well, now TMZ has obtained glorious footage showing this is indeed the case. Get ready, boys and girls, cause the lace fronts are about to get torn off!
The video is from Tuesday’s auditioning panel in Charlotte, North Carolina. There are no details on what actually sparked Nicki and Mimi’s argument, but really – who cares? Do we need a reason? No! Their catfight is a tasty treat and is deliciously satisfying.
TMZ was kind enough to transcribe the video for us:
Nicki: Get this shit in self control. Get in control. Get in control.
Randy: Settle down, settle down.
Nicki: Don’t lose your head. Don’t lose your head (inaudible). Don’t tell me I’m a gangster.
Nicki: (inaudible) every 5 minutes. So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a fucking problem, handle it.
Nicki: I told them I’m not fuckin’ putting up with her fucking highness over there. Figure it the fuck out. Figure it out.
Mariah: Oh why, WHYYYY, do I have a three year old sitting around me?
Nicki: I’m not gonna sit here every fucking minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.
Mariah: I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch and go all around the stage.
TMZ confirmed production yesterday had to be stopped so the two could cool off.
The show should just forget this idol search bullshit. We have plenty of other talent shows contestants can show off the goods on.
What Ryan Seacrest and FOX should really do is give Nicki and Mimi some pugil sticks and rename the show American Idol Gladiators. How awesome would that be? Randy Jackson can stick around and ref the situation, throwin’ in a random “dawg” here and there. Keith Urban can give the audience a play-by-play (especially if he does it Cotton McKnight/Pepper Brooks-style). Let’s be real, audiences would tune in en masse to see watch good ol’ fashion wig snatching and AI would have their best ratings in years.
