This week's Fierce Award goes to Nicki Minaj: the feisty rapper best known for her wardrobe and barbed, caustic retorts. Recently, her royal rumble with Mariah Carey went viral. Following a heated dispute over a contestant, Minaj was heard saying, “I’m not putting up with her highness over there.” Noted.
It didn't stop there.When Barbara Walters "aired Carey’s grievances," Minaj Tweeted: “Barbara walters didn’t reach out from our team. I guess we’re too dangerous.” She added, “I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.” Double fierce.
"American Idol" started going down hill after Simon left two years ago. Now, interest in the ageing 10-year-old talent show is heating up thanks to the gangsta vibe Minaj is generating.
A day after the Carey-Minaj verbal joust, Walters said the latter warned Mariah: “I love you, but we might fight again.”
More than the singing in "American Idol," it's the cat fights I'm most excited about.
