Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey at War on American Idol Set

Nicki Minaj walked out on Mariah Carey during the filming of an American Idol audition in Charlotte, North Carolina, ostensibly because she could not take Mariah Carey’s high-handedness.

This is how it went –

Nicki  Get this s**t in self control.  Get in control.  Get in control.
Randy  Settle down, settle down
Nicki  Don’t lose your head.  Don’t lose your head (inaudible).  Don’t tell me I’m a gangster.
Nicki  (inaudible) every 5 minutes.  So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a f**king problem, handle it.
Nicki  I told them I’m not f**kin’ putting up with her f**king highness over there.  Figure it the f**k out.  Figure it out.
Nicki  I’m not gonna sit here every f**king minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.

Our sympathies with Keith Urban who was stuck haplessly between the two feuding cats. Here’s a parody video of Mariah Carey making her displeasure clear about Nicki Minaj joining American Idol.

Stars Scuffle at BET Awards 2012 – Gunshots Heard

Controversy and awards events go hand in hand, if it is not about issues with biased selections then it is about star egos clashing. Something on these lines happened at the BET Awards function on 29th September; we don’t know yet what caused the protagonists to to combust but there were two scuffles reported; the first one featured Rick Ross and Young Jeezy which according to eyewitnesses led to gunshots being fired in the parking lot. The local police; however, maintained that not only was no one injured, there were no gunshots fired.

The second fight involved MMG rapper Gunplay and members of 50-Cent’s G-Unit crew. This happened in the artist’s trailer area and was a bit of a mismatch because it had Gunplay being jumped by at least members of the G-Unit crew; it ended with Gunplay being subdued with pepper spray by the cops and being arrested as well.
