Mariah Carey told Barbara Walters that reports were right. Nicki Minaj did threaten to shoot her after their cat fight during auditions. You mean shoot her an angry look or a stern letter, right? No, with bullets. From a gun. Allegedly, Nicki said, “If I had a gun, I would shoot the bitch.”
The comment shouldn’t be taken at face value because you lose your street cred when studios make you wear a blonde wig and dance for them. It’s like a children’s clown threatening to beat you to death with his clown shoe. The only time you should worry is if the clown’s name is John Wayne Gacy. Mariah is beefing up security anyway and added that Nicki hasn’t apologized but she still loves her.
Nicki responded with a few tweets. “I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.” She later added, “I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn,” and “Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!!”
I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue. So I’m bout to po dot tea.

I have no idea what Nicki just said because I don’t have a decoder ring but I’m guessing “tea” in this case means truth? This feud is like the ones between old money and new money. If Mariah Carey had been wearing any pearls, she would have clutched them so hard.
Keith Urban, who was sitting between the two when it happened, put a positive spin on it telling Extra, “I love it, I gotta say, look I love working with passionate people. I love artists. Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It’s a very alive and very invigorating work environment. A lot of passion. Randy is the craziest, so you know I’m predictable.”
