Nicki Minaj Slams 'Insecure' And 'Bitter' Mariah Carey
The rapper has added more fuel to their feuding flame Thursday morning, slamming Carey for calling her out on-air in a scathing tweet. Reportedly, Minaj is upset that Carey not-so-subtly hinted at the fact that she's never reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 during the previous night's episode of their FOX show.
"All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that," Minaj tweets, referencing rumors that former judge Jennifer Lopez is in talks to replace Carey.
"Bwaha! Burn? Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game. Yep, a black female rapper."took a deeper dig at the 43-year-old crooner, writing to blogger Perez Hilton, "What u SHOULD be doing (wit your messy ass) is asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter."
This isn't the first time Minaj instigated a fight with Carey. Even before their season of Idol premiered, the "Starships" singer was already threatening to knock her out during auditions.
Thursday's taping of Idol is sure to be awkward.
