Nick Cannon Weighs In on Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s ‘American Idol’ Feud: ‘I Was a Little Disappointed in the Producers’ (VIDEO)
“Oh man, I think it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff. I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that’s not what American Idol is about,” Cannon said.
“I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff, during the commercial you and I could have went at it, but the fact that someone was able to get a camera phone and take it out.”
The infamous exchange — in which Minaj, 29 threatened to “knock out” Carey, 42 — leaked online in early October. In the video, which was taken during an audition Charlotte, N.C., Minaj is heard dropping plenty of f-bombs, screaming, “I told them, I’m not f***in’ putting up with her f***in’ highness over there.”
