Nicki Minaj has had an active week on Twitter. Just a day after calling out an “insecure” and “bitter” Mariah Carey, the American Idol judge is taking issue with Access Hollywood for an opinion piece that addresses her alleged bad behavior backstage.
“Each week, she comes backstage for interviews and we are told ‘two questions only’ while her people hover over you and even, at times, have their hand on your arm as you end your interview to make you stop,” writes Laura Saltman. “Waiver from the two-question rule and Nicki herself will walk away. She makes zero eye contact and has no connection to whomever is interviewing her. If she likes your question, she may give you a proper answer. If she doesn’t, she may give you a dirty look and walk off.”
She goes on to claim that Nicki’s brand of cyber bullying makes her unnecessary to the Idol judging panel compared to the others, who are always gracious toward media reporters. Nicki quickly responded to the unflattering comments online.
“Honestly, if your day was really RUINED because i walked away from a question, rather than discuss something negative, u need a LIFE. Lmao. Like…why? I spk to these ppl every single week. Go above and beyond! And the one time i ignore your ignorance u try to paint a bad pic? I wldve respected her had she pulled me aside like a BOSS. But going to your ‘friends’ to have them lash out against me on TV? grow up hoe” she tweeted yesterday (May 3).
In true Twitter fashion, the Queens rapper’s super fans, also known as Barbz, were on the attack as evidenced by Saltman, who retweeted a death threat from a particular Nicki stan.
“@MICHOLEKEMP: @LauraSaltman I’ll kill u. For @NICKIMINAJ come to Atlanta hoe” here is a tweet everyone should see. So disturbing the hate some people have in their veins. I think my last retweet shows that. Very sad when it comes to this. Done. Goodnight”
