R&B songstress Mariah Carey has stepped forward to address the rumoured beef between herself and Nicki Minaj. Rather than deny the claims, Mariah questioned how one could have sparked a feud in such a short space of time.
MTV News paid a visit to the “Idol” set at Lincoln Center on Monday (September 17), and the judges — including Minaj and Carey — were all smiles, immediately putting to rest tales of bad blood between the two. “How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that],” Mariah responded, laughing, when asked if she and the YMCMB rapper were seeing eye-to-eye. “It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter,” she added, while Minaj chuckled along with her, looking amused at the beef rumors.

Rumours of tensions have been boiling up the internet in the past week, with Carey and Minaj going at it in the first recordings of American Idol. Apparently when Nicki would be critiquing an contestant, Mariah would speak over her and add her opinions to the mix. Something which we can easily imagine, but the YMCMB rapper is not one to stay quiet and fought to have her say.
I feel like this has all been instigated by the American Idol producers to get some press time. I mean The Voice is hugely popular in America and with X Factor now having Britney Spears, AI has been left in the background. To be honest, I do hope there is a cat fight though. Nicki vs Mariah would be an interesting bout. I’ll go for a Nicki Minaj first round knockout!
