Minaj Slams Carey And The ‘Idol’ Feud Is Back On

Nicki Minaj is slamming Mariah Carey in a renewal of the long-running American Idol feud which provides much of the tired reality show’s entertainment value.

The third season finale of Duck Dynasty recently crushed American Idol in a head-to-head contest. The redneck duck hunting marketing reality show pulled 5.6 million viewers in the highly coveted 18 to 49 year old age bracket. Idol was only the runner-up with 4.1 million.

What makes the showing even more disgraceful is that Duck Dynasty is on A&E, a cable network, while Idol appears on Fox, which is broadcast for free. Therefore, Idol always starts with a huge headstart over the cable competition.

So Duck Dynasty is over for the season, and it’s time to generate some excitement about American Idol. Fox is out of of ideas, but that’s OK. They’ll just reboot the Carey/Minaj feud. Hey, it worked last time, right?

The catfight fired up again Wednesday night. Mariah Carey was offering one of her usual forgettable critiques of contestant Angie Miller, and Minaj butted in.

That was enough for Carey. She pointed a finger straight at Minaj as she informed her that she’d never had a No. One single on the Billboard Hot 100.


So Minaj slammed Carey right back with a somewhat one-sided Twitter war.

Still, the reminder that Minaj just wasn’t as big a star as Carey was kinda harsh. If I was Nicki Minaj, I’d know exactly who I’d like to kick — and where. And Minaj just posted the right footwear for it:

Here’s one of the Nicki Minaj’s tweets sent when she was presumably still stinging from Carey’s crack about her lack of No. One hits:
