When an online video leaked showing “American Idol” judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey in a heated exchange with one another, people speculated whether or not the beef was legitimate or if this grudge was simply for show.
It had been reported that Carey had a reluctance towards Minaj coming onto the show as a judge, yet the 42-year old songstress swiftly shot down shut reports.
Even actress and songstress Jennifer Hudson gave her take on the ordeal, claiming that back in and forthing was simply an act in order to drum up more ratings for the show, which had seen a steady decline in viewership over the past five seasons.
It appears that Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, may have taken things personal.
According to a report by the UrbanBelleMag.com on Monday, the “America’s Got Talent” host served as the DJ as the Maxim Celebrates the Launch of Assassin’s Creed III event in Hollywood recently and he reportedly turned down a partisans request to have Minaj’s “Starships” song played.
A source told People Magazine the following.
“Nick hyped up the party by playing songs including ones by Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction. The crowd was loving the music and Nick was dancing! A guest approached to request that he play Minaj’s ‘Starships’ but he acted like he didn’t hear the request. Clearly he was supporting his wife during her feud.”
Perhaps there is more than just smoke behind this latest feud.
