Nicki Minaj is ready to spill some major tea about why she and Mariah Carey don’t get along.
Sources from Nicki and Mariah’s camps have been commenting about their "American Idol" beef all week long. Last night, Nicki had enough of all the background chatter and teased that she might soon speak on their differences herself.
"Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!!" she tweeted yesterday. "I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue. So I’m bout to po dot tea."
To hear (or see) Nicki tell it, this is all a case of a diva’s oversized, unsatisfied ego. Nicki said that Mariah doesn’t feel like she’s getting enough love from "American Idol" producers.
"I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn," Nicki said, referencing Mariah’s claims that the "Pound the Alarm" rapper threatened to kill her. "All I do is compliment u. That’s not enuff? Ur a legend, cheer up. U don’t have to run down ur resume or feel intimidated. Shady McGrady."
TMZ.com reported that Mariah stepped up her security after telling Barbara Walters about the alleged threat. And in Nicki’s mind, this is a prime example of Mariah milking their beef for more attention because she’s feeling a little inadequate.
"I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good," Nicki tweeted. "Insecurity is as cruel as the grave."
