Real recognises real and according to Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey isn’t part of the club. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest on E! News, the completely authentic rapper sniped at her fellow American Idol judge by claiming that Carey is part of the “fake” music industry.
“I just really thought that we were friends but that’s the other thing I learned that this industry is so fake,” claimed Minaj, who has yet to reveal her real age or natural hair to the world. “You walk away thinking people are yourfriends and they’re not. It’s a couple nice hi and byes and then really, you better not step on nobody’s toes.”
Minaj slammed Carey on Twitter last week after their latest clash on American Idol and a revealing article by Access Hollywood’s Laura Saltman hit the web. Providing video evidence to support her claims, Saltman stated that Minaj has been incredibly difficult to handle during the post-Idol press meetings and that she is often rude during interviews. What has resulted is an ongoing war of words between Minaj and the Access Hollywood staff.
Naturally, Minaj used the more relevant Carey’s name as part of her responses to Saltman as she clearly sought to get acknowledgement from the diva. However, Carey continued to ignore Minaj, who suggested that the former is “insecure” and jealous of her success.
“God forbid you get a little shine,” the unstable Minaj said on E! News. “God forbid you’re maybe witty or quick on your toes or make someone laugh. Then maybe you’re making another person feel insecure. And you shouldn’t have to dim your light to let another person shine.”
Notably, Carey has yet to voice a negative word to or about Minaj in any public forum, and she has been a very encouraging judge on American Idol while Minaj has made every effort to insult the far more talented contestants. So, who has truly been guilty of dimming other people’s light?
