With chart-topping hits and eccentric alter egos, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey each have built successful careers in the spotlight. Now sharing the judges' table on American Idol, Minaj, 29, and Carey, 42, are hitting headlines — but this time for their diva dramatics. The pop stars have sparked an on-set feud, after a heated exchange during a recent audition session in Charlotte, N.C., left Minaj and Carey at odds.
