The rumors about Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj feuding on American Idol look like they are true after Minaj’s new reality miniseries, My Truth, aired on E! on Sunday. The “Super Bass” singer proved she’s a perfectionist who expects the best from everyone at all times.
The three-part series gives viewers an inside look at Minaj’s world, from her music empire, her new gig as a judge on Season 12 of American Idol, and the launch of her perfume. In fact, the singer said her fragrance, Pink Friday, is a “milestone for hip-hop.”
While that claim remains to be seen, the hip-hop star finally reveals why she was more than an hour late for her first American Idol taping. Are you ready for this? Minaj was furious because her assistant did not provide her with a steamer for her jacket.
This will be an interesting season for Carey and fellow Idol judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson. Carey has always been the one with a demanding personality, but it looks like Minaj might have one-upped the “We Belong Together” singer, who seems to have mellowed with her marriage to America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon.
It also appears Minaj might have it in for her fellow American Idol judge. In an upcoming episode, the colorful rapper says, “I think that Mariah met her match this time. And I don’t think she was expecting to meet her match.”
It looks like executive producer Nigel Lythgoe wasn’t lying when he said the feud wasn’t a publicity stunt. American Idol just might be the show to watch in 2013.
