Video: Nicki Minaj Cusses Out Mariah Carey During ‘American Idol’ Audition
On Wednesday, “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest opened up about the incident, offering up some insider knowledge on what went down between the two women. “There was a very heated, intense argument towards the end of the day after a contestant did a little bit of a performance in the room. Keith [Urban] was sitting there, Randy [Jackson] was sitting there. Of course, Nicki and Mariah both there. I was outside. I was outside with the contestant’s family at the time. Both of these judges, as I have said before, come with different perspective,” he explained of the mid-audition fight. He added that while both women bring opposing viewpoints to the panel, this argument “went a little far.”
In the footage, a pink-haired Nicki reportedly requested that she not be referred to as a “gangster” and added, “I’m not f—ing putting up with her f—ing highness.” For her part, Carey complained that “I can’t see my kids, because you decided to act like a little crazy bitch.”
Seacreast added, “And, so, yeah, it was heated. It did go too far, to the point where the producers said with just a few more contestants left, ‘Let’s call it a day.’ And, [they] called a ‘wrap’. So, today [October 3] is a second day of auditions in Charlotte, with that panel. And when you look at what the producers and Fox put together for this season, both of them, all of them, the four of them are essential components to what makes up the entire sum of the panel and provides that different perspective and that interesting point of view.”
