Mariah Carey says Nicki Minaj threatened to shoot her
If you think American Idol is just going to come out with no repercussions after shoutfest 2012, picture this: Mariah Carey told Barbara Walters that she's afraid of Nicki Minaj because the multihued wondered threatened to shoot Mimi after Tuesday's argument. We'd say it's hyperbole on Nicki's part, but, well, you know. We wouldn't put it past her, is what we're saying.
"She said that when Nicki walked off the set, multiple people heard Nicki say, 'If I had a gun I would shoot (the) bitch,'" Walters said on The View on Thursday. Mimi is apparently so shaken up by the whole drama, she's hired security. Minaj said she thought the pair would fight again, but Mariah has said that ain't happening.
To get Nicki's side of this, she tweeted via @nickiminaj, "I don't call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave." She later added, "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 cm"
Okay, then. Nothing resolved, it seems. Especially not when she further writes, "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..." And now we all realize how bad it can be picking two divas to fight for one spotlight.
