Hip-hop legend Queen Latifah has been one of the few folks who hasn’t shared an opinion upon the American Idol drama between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. After the two pop stars got into a huge brouhaha on the set of the popular Fox singing competition last week, Carey alleged that Minaj threatened to shoot her. The situation got so big that Mariah’s husband, Nick Cannon, jumped into the mix to defend his wife, who he felt was being unfairly attacked.
Never one to back down from confrontation, Latifah spoke out about the situation, believing that Nicki was in the wrong. As the Flavor Unit CEO appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Queen Latifah defined the fight to be nothing but “ignorance,” and said that the Young Money pop princess needs to learn a healthy dosage of respect for her elders.
