When it was first revealed that Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were both set to become judges for the twelfth season of “American Idol”, the speculation ran rampant about how the two pop superstars would get along.
Early reports claimed that Carey was a little distraught that Minaj was coming on board, but she hastily denied the rumors.
Weeks went by without too much commotion taking place, but earlier this month, a shocking video hit the net that saw Minaj cussing out Carey during some auditions taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina. Judging by the video, the feud seemed to very much be a reality.
But not everyone is buying into the drama.
As reported by TMZ.com on Monday, Jennifer Hudson, a finalist on the third season of the hit show, seems to have her doubts about any bad blood existing between Carey and Minaj.
“I don’t believe it,” Hudson said, as she was spotted at the LAX airport in Los Angeles. “I think it’s just for ratings for the show.”
Whether real or fake, you must admit that Carey and Minaj have already created some much-needed buzz for the show even before any of their episodes have aired.
