American Idol Judges Nicki Minaj & Mariah Carey Already Beefing

 

Looks like the producers of American Idol are getting exactly what they wanted. The reality series started vetting contestants today and TMZ reports that new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, despite being all smiles in recent photos, are already passively aggressively beefing with each other. To Minaj’s credit, it seems like Carey is the one who isn’t playing nice.

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago — there’s only room for one diva on “American Idol.”

Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first “A.I.” taping Sunday in NYC.  When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt — not once, but many times.  Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.

One “A.I.” spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, “These girls just don’t like each other.”

You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.

It’s going to be a long season. If you still watch American Idol.
