Video surfaced last week of the new ‘American Idol’ judges, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, having a heated altercation. Well, it was more of Minaj screaming at the top of her lungs while Carey tried to Jim Lehrer the situation by squeezing in a few words here and there. Between the two pop-queens sat country superstar Keith Urban, who appeared expressionless while the two went off on this verbal tirade.
This whole situation with Carey and Minaj stinks to high hell. The video appears to be shot on a phone made in the 1999 and is so close to the judges it has me questioning its authenticity. American Idol is waning in popularity and in ratings. The season 11 finale, where Philip Phillips came out victorious, was the lowest rated ‘Idol’ ever. This quite honestly seems like a publicity stunt to get people interested in the show again. Nicki Minaj is one of the worlds biggest sensations right now and Mariah Carey, while there is no questioning she can still belt one out, doesn’t have the same popularity as she use to. Either way, it seems to be working. New stories are coming out about the judges, even Barbara Walters sat down with Mariah Carey. ‘American Idol’ is relevant again! Or, at least until the auditions are over then it will sink back into television abyss joining shows like ‘Survivor.’
