Nicki Minaj is firing back at former American Idol judge Steven Tyler over some comments he made on Twitter regarding the feuding that has taken place on the judges panel.
Though Minaj and Mariah Carey have seemed to have figured out their differences more than a month ago, Tyler took to his Twitter page saying that they should get along for the benefit of the contestants.
He wrote, “I know that they’ve got something going on on the judges’ panel; it shouldn’t be that, it should be the opposite. They should have something going on, which is called ‘camaraderie’.
“These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death; you’re not going to get the best.”
Tyler then slammed Minaj personally, suggesting that she wouldn’t know how to spot real talent if it was right there in front of her. He added;
“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield. Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out.”
Minaj didn’t like those comment’s very much, and fired back at the former Idol judge;
“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet! You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f**k yourself and worry about yourself babe.
“I understand you really wanted to keep your job, but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment.
“When Steven first went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers and fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”
