UPDATE: Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj Argue During ‘American Idol’ Auditions


Yesterday, a 30-second clip surfaced of a nasty spat between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. The two got into a heated argument after what TMZ reports was a long-day of snide comments and disagreements over contestants’ performances.

Now, a minute-long video of the feud has hit the net. You can hear the Barbie rapper viciously spew, “If you got a fuckin’ problem, handle it…I’m not fuckin’ putting up with her fuckin’ highness over there.” Mariah’s response? Sounded like nothing much more than an exhausted “Why?”

Host Ryan Seacret gracefully tried to douse the firestorm. “It got heated between Nicki and Mariah,” he said. “There’s nothing wrong with disagreeing, and that’s gonna happen, and that’s OK.”

Stories about this female feud surfaced on day one, although each artist tried to douse the fire in interviews. Days ago, Carey said during a press conference, “How we gonna feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer to spread out. It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter.”

Apparently, something’s going down. Hopefully these two Vixens, who recorded “Up Out My Face” together, can patch things up amicably.
