Ima-a-Diva: Mariah Carey Wants Nicki Minaj Out and Lenny Kravitz In On “American Idol”

August 22, 2012  |  

Oh, Mims. I was hoping all the TMZ stories that Mariah Carey is not happy about the rumors she’ll be sharing a stage with Nicki Minaj as a fellow judge on “American Idol” weren’t true, but I think Mimi did herself in with her on tweets (as these stories usually go).

We all know Mariah has a bit of a diva rep and the story is she was expecting to be the only female on the “Idol” judging panel, meaning if Nicki Minaj were to join the show that would be a big no-no in her eyes. Not to mention Nicki’s 29, Mariah’s 42, Mariah still wants to be a hot 20-something (said with love)… you get my drift. You never can be too sure whether anonymous sources are telling the truth or starting drama when it comes to things like this, but considering Mariah is e-campaigning for Lenny Kravitz to join the show, I’m thinking there is some truth here. A couple of days ago she sent out these tweets:

That “what is going on?” tells me she had no clue Nicki was even an option and she is NOT pleased — especially since she suggested someone else for the slot. That was a bold move considering Mariah could have no doubt picked up the phone and got the info she needed from the “Idol” producers rather than hoping on Twitter. A couple of years back Nicki Minaj appeared on Mariah Carey’s track “Up Out My Face,” and it sounds like that’s how Mariah’s attitude might be toward the pink Barbie if they have to do the show together. In the words of their song, if these two ladies hit the stage together, “not even a nail technician with a whole lot of gel and acrylic can fix this.”
