Nicki Minaj Blasts Mariah Carey in Twitter Rant Over American Idol Feud

Nicki Minaj isn’t holding back any opinions on co-judge Mariah Carey, unload a series of heated tweets today on her Twitter.

Following the American Idol judges’s intense spat earlier this week in Charlotte, North Carolina, Mariah reportedly chatted with Barbara Walters about the incident and claimed multiple people heard Nicki threaten her by saying, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the b*tch.”

In response to the story, Nicki tweeted, “The struggle to be a victim is real in these streets. Lmaooooooooooo,” adding, “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.”

Nicki continued her jibes on Twitter, writing, “Ironically no camera or mic heard the gun comment tho. Lol @ the struggle. Not even the producers believed u. Say no to violence barbz,” and later, “Barbara walters didn't reach out from our team barbz. I guess we're too dangerous. Don't shake if u don't wannA get shook!!!”

The boisterous songstress then turned the tables on Mariah, saying “I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we've had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.”

Nicki hinted that she’s been keeping her lips sealed for an untold amount of time about the long-rumored friction with Mariah and wrote, “I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue.”

She closed out her Mariah-related rant (for now) with a bit of guilt tripping, writing, “All I do is compliment u. That's not enuff? Ur a legend, cheer up. U don't have to run down ur resume or feel intimidated. Shady McGrady...”

If Nicki’s theory that producers are fueling the feud for entertainment value is true, she’s giving them plenty of ammunition to work with!
