One of the things I say her a lot, and often in not the nicest terms, is that I blog about what interests me. I’m not one of those bloggers that I call Rebloggers. Rebloggers are people who just drag everyone else’s blogs over to their blog (often copied word for word.) I blog about things I have something to say about. I’ve been reading the tea on the Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey throw down on the set of Idol the other day. I’m interested in the story and following it closely. But, I don’t feel like I have an opinion yet on what is going on. What the hell is going on? So I decided to ask you guys whose side you are on.
Today Mariah Carey called Barbara Walters just before The View. Mariah told Barbara that as they were leaving the set “people” heard Nicki say that if she had a gun she would shoot her. TMZ had already floated that rumor (that came from Mariah’s camp) and Idol producers said it never happened. Nicki took to her twitter account today and went on a Jaqueline Laurita sort of frenzy. Nicki’s point of view seems to be two-fold. First, she has a problem with Mariah listing her credentials all the time and secondly, Nicki seems to think that Mariah feels overshadowed by Nicki’s presence. Nicki claims that the producers have said that she is the best judge since Simon and that is making Mariah insecure.
In the video we’ve all seen a million times now, Nicki’s attacks on Mariah seem to be about Mariah being a diva. I’m sure they are both divas. I’m having a hard time picking a side here. Does anyone have any strong feelings either way? I had heard way before Nicki was even considered for the show that Mariah had said she didn’t want to be on the panel with another female. This was back when J-lo staying possible. Based on that alone, I’m leaning slightly toward Team Nicki on this issue. But mostly, I’m going to need someone to explain this to me.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
