Steven Tyler Apologizes To Nicki Minaj After “Racist” Comment
Who wants beef? Apparently not former American Idol judge Steven Tyler.
The loud-mouthed rockstar who recently found himself on the receiving end of a mini spazz-session from American Idol judges table newcomer Nicki Minaj after he took shots at her ability to effectively judge all generes of music has now publicly apologized for offending the big-bootied barb.

Steven Tyler isn’t looking to feud.
The former American Idol judge is sorry that Nicki Minaj found his comments to be racist. “I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki,” the Aerosmith rocker said Tuesday on eTalk, a Canadian entertainment show.
“I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don’t know where she got that out of me saying I’m not sure how she would’ve judged Bob Dylan.”
Minaj was outraged after Tyler told MTV he thought the “Starships” singer “would have sent [Dylan] to the cornfield” if he’d come on Idol. But Tyler insisted he only meant, “if Bob Dylan came on the show, he would’ve been thrown off.”
“Maybe I spoke out of turn,” he said. “But a racist I’m not, Nicki.”
Sounds like he found out the hard way that thicky Nicki is all about that hoodrat life if you get on her bad side, just like Mariah had to find out…
