Nicki Minaj on GMA – Goes Soft on Mariah

Check out this video of Nicki Minaj as she appeared on Good Morning America on ABC. Has she mellowed since her very public fracas with Mariah Carey or was it that she didn’t want any attention taken away from the promotion of her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.

Barbie touched upon a lot of things, such as the influence of Mariah Carey’s music on her when she was growing up [was she calling Mariah old over here?], her twin wins at the AMA 2012, her album of course, and her video for “Freedom”.

Take a look at the video and decide, will be interesting to see if Mariah Carey responds to this, if at all.

Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber Get The Big Awards at AMA 2012

Justin Bieber dominated the AMA 2012 and had Nicki Minaj for company, literally and metaphorically. The two performed together and Nicki won the hiphop artist of the year award beating Tyga and Drake.

Justin, on his part, blew the competition away winning the Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards on Sunday night. His competitors for the award included Rihanna and Katy Perry. And then let off some steam during his acceptance speech for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist when he said “This is for all the haters who thought that maybe I was just here for one or two years. I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time.”

Nicki Minaj May Just Invite PETA’s Ire in London

Woe betide the celeb who gets caught at the wrong end of PETA’s stick; if they catch you wearing fur you can be sure that fur will fly. So far, Nicki Minaj has eluded the group’s ire.  She was spotted wearing leopard print boots, a fur coat and purple pants while entering the Corinthia Hotel where she has been staying.

Last month it was Rihanna, and if memory serves me right that too was in London. At that point in time, a PETA spokesperson had said “Rihanna may not have a clue that snakes killed for boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned alive. Of course, they can’t go on Oprah to cry about it.”

‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The ReUp’ Debuts November 19th

Nicki Minaj took to twitter to confirm the release date of her latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The ReUp.; and its releasing November 19th.

The base for this album is something that Nicki had executed as a part of her sophomore project and that was titled Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The album will have five new songs apart from existing material; noteworthy among the new numbers is probably the single “The Boys” featuring Cassie. We say noteworthy because the songstress released a pic of her and Cassie striking a pose, and the pic’s enough to set our minds racing…south.

Lets see where this album takes her. Remember the reception that the earlier one got?


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.
