Nicki Minaj Lectures ‘American Idol’ Contestant On Twitter
It looks like Nicki Minaj’s ‘American Idol’ dealings have spilled over into the Twittersphere following the elimination of contestant Devin Velez judge.
The singer was ousted on Friday and had some upfront remarks about what Nicki had to say about him.
“I agree with the first half of her critique, when she said that it felt like it was Hollywood week, that it was a joke, that stuff like that should not happen, that she was going to pretend that she didn’t hear it,” he said. “When she went crazy–when she was like ‘get off the stage, blah blah blah’ and it’s just like ‘whoa Miss Minaj, I need you to calm down please.'”
The 18-year old’s comments started a whole chain reaction of subliminal tweets from Nicki.
“America r the ‘potential’ fans, U MUST win them over. ‘Saves’ are bullshit and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year.”
“Send the judges some flowers and a card,” she continued. “If Curtis didn’t get SAVED, NONE of u get saved. Best male voice of the SEASON!!!!!!!!!!! #TruthTea.”
“Trust me BEW BEW. If EYE didn’t want u in that TOP, YOU wldnt have been in that TOP. Fought for ALL of You. So just simply b gracious.”
“American Idol’ history lesson: “Jennifer Hudson didn’t win!!! Oscar Winner! #memba??? ok. Take that exposure and let your light shine.”
Velez responded but deleted his tweet a short time later: “That moment when an adult stoops down to the 3rd grade level…LOL grow up Hun, I’ve got songs to write. #movingforward.”
Did Nicki go overboard or did Velez?
