Everybody hates Nick…
After a interview gone wrong after a taping of American Idol, Access Hollywood reporter Laura Saltman used her company’s website to take a big, steaming, isht on Nicki Minaj.
According to HelloBeautiful the exchange went a little something like this:
“Are you looking forward to the end [of American Idol]? Because I know there were some Twitter comments you made today that caused quite a stir,” Laura asked.
“That question didn’t even make sense,” Nick replied. “So if you want me to insinuate what you’re talking about I’m not going to.”
Before Saltman could respond, Nicki rolled her eyes, said goodnight and walked away.
For 11 seasons, “American Idol” reigned supreme on television but they have not been without their missteps – the Corey Clarke/Paula Abdul debacle, Ellen DeGeneres’ odd one season stint, Kara DioGuardi’s ouster from the show, allegations of phone line hacking and power voting.
However, nothing has quite rattled the show like the addition of judge Nicki Minaj for Season 12.
What started as an innocent PR move (likely released by someone within the “Idol” camp) to get some publicity for the aging show, the Mariah Carey/Nicki fight tape released during the auditions has instead turned into a nightmare for “Idol.” This misfire affected the entire season of the show, not because it was wrong to release it, but because the two women involved could never move past their anger toward one another.
…Nicki and Mariah’s not-so-charming banter has included Nicki calling Mariah “sir” two weeks ago after a spat and Wednesday night referring to her as “Honey Boo Boo” as a final slam. For the record, Mariah never heard Nicki’s “sir” comment until after the show aired. When asked about it backstage, she wanted to respond but her publicist smartly told her not too. You see, Mariah is a professional who understands her reputation is everything. She has class. Nicki is another story.
This is when it gets ugly. Hit the flip side to read the rest of Laura’s scathing criticism of the caked-out YMCMB spitter.
