Mariah Carey: Nicki Minaj Feud Was 'One-Sided'
The new "American Idol" judges disagree on the nature of their much-publicized argument.
FOX gathered the reality competition’s judges and producers in Pasadena for the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif. on Tuesday. And, naturally, questions arose about the much-reported feud between Carey and Minaj, which reached a fever pitch when the two sparred in a leaked video during auditions.
But, of course, the public still wants to know. The entire panel seemed to have their talking points on the feud: That sometimes things get heated when the judges disagree and that they actually want them to be passionate about the contestants.
Carey replied, “I did nothing and here we are.” Then, she added, “It was all one-sided.”
To which Minaj scowled, “No, it wasn’t.”
American Idol returns Jan. 16 at 8 PM on FOX.
