Nicki Minaj should respect Mimi

Philippines

American idol season 12 has started and I think one of the most hyped issues about the show is the MC-Nicki Minaj feud. All I can say is that nicki minaj should learn to respect MC. Not only because of her career achievements but also because she has been in the industry for more than 20 years. In fact I think minaj should be grateful to mimi because when she was just starting, mimi gave her the platform to record with her in their collaboration “Up Out My Face”. Mimi believed in her talent that’s why she asked her to be in the remix version of the song. When the video about the incident surfaced, I love MC more because she never went down to the level of that classless gangster.

I couldn't agree with you more. I can't get my head around it the way the two duke it out and cat fight on there. Nicki is not as good as Mariah at all and her jealousy thing has got to go. Did you hear what she told that one girl? That she wouldn't accept her going to Hollywood cause she thought of her as a rival? Then when she complimented her she said she would support her now. Something to that effect anyways. So immature and childish. She needs to grow up. AI has sunk to some all time lows there by hiring her as their judge. I like Keith Urban and Mariah.

i really expect mariah to be a great judge because she is a great singer herself and has a lo of credibility. keith is growing on me.

I don't listen much to that type of music but I agree...Mariah is a professional and she has class...Keith Urban is the same. Nicki Minaj...Is she just there for the drama she creates? I know nothing about her musical talent at all but just her personality alone and how she presents herself...no class...middle school drama..Why is she getting paid for this?

I don't listen to nicki minaj music, even to the days were she use to have a concert in previous AI seasons. not sure if two judges would fit to criticize talent if the singer wasn't that good. anyways, we will see in teh coming months and weeks of the show. who knows some one would surprised us

I lost compete respect for nicki. I do not like her attitude problem. There is no need for that and she is acting very immature.

it's a shame that idol hasn't kicked her out of the panel. she has no credibility anyway.

She seems as bad if not worse than Courtney Love from back in the day. She's ridiculous.

This is pretty common in showbizness, most especially in reality shows which cameras are always rolling putting all the actions with no scripts, resulting that even the worse scenes are captured on taped. Sometimes, such scenes also made or break a celebrity putting it as a “publicity stunt” so that they will earn more popularity over the press and the media. It’s quite annoying, but we can’t help them because they are just being real.

She is a fake and i really doubt it she will be around longer than Mariah has been...i hate people who thinks so highly of themselves when in fact they are not on the same level.

mariah has lasted for 23 years and she's still around. i also don't think nicki minaj would last that long. she's just a fad of pop culture.

I never really saw the video, but i just read it in the internet- it was all over the news for a while.. I agree, Niki Minaj should definitely respect MAriah.. Even though i am not a huge fan of Mariah, she is very successful and worked hard to get to where she is.. so she deserves to be respected.

I am watching the show now and I do think the same way. This Nicki Minaj I think is disrespectful. She wants to do the talking all the time and she is trying to act like she is smarter than everyone in that panel. She is too much of a blabbermouth, I don't like her either.

if you will ask the legends like chaka khan, aretha franklin, stevie wonder, michael jackson (rip) and some legends, they love mariah it's because mariah respect them.

I often have to wonder if the feud is not amped up to improve viewing? I was watching one of those entertainment shows and it said that American Idol viewing is down this season as opposed to the previous seasons. It could all be a ruse to keep people tuned in. I have decided not to watch it this year. As soon as I heard about the little drama going on between the two I decided not waste my time watching. How can they honestly say that they are doing their jobs if there is so much petty bickering and arguing?

the feud is real in fact mariah hired more security because of the threat on her life. though i think the management really is using this issue to get the audience's attention,

Would you respect someone that is always saying sly remarks to you? I have much love for Mariah and I like her music but she is being somewhat of a diva. I mean really they both are talented and this little fued thing they got needs to stop. Nicki Minaj was already making records before collaborating with Mariah on "Up Out My Face" so there was no need for her to give her the platform. And furthermore, there are two sides to every story, who knows what went on before the cameras come on. Mariah just making it look like Nicki is the blame for everything.

if you will see the video, mariah was acting very professionally. she was so classy. unlike minaj. with the sly remarks, nicki was the first one who did it. sorry i can't find the rolling eyes emoticon.

Hello Iluvusabado, I think she's very creative and entertaining during the last audition episodes, am beginning to see why she loves to do things the way she do because she wants to put light on the show. and not to make it too boring for her do some stunt that would entertain tv audience. besides, maybe she could lessen her fooling with Mariah Carey just a little bit

i'm a mariah fan and i really hate her eyes rolling when a contestant is a great fan of mariah. it's quite expected since mariah has been in the business longer than hers.

This show needs to be about the contestants, not the judges.

the show has just started. i think it's normal that people are curious about how the judges will do but i think eventually, we will see more of the contestants.

I like Nikki. She is bold, she is beautiful and she is different and she is creative. MC sings all songs in the same style, AAAAAAAAAAA... Boringggggg!
• Philippines

well, i think nicki is entertaining but in terms of beauty, i don't think so. mariah is beautiful inside and out. nicki's music is all about s@x and wh@res. so i don't think it's creative.

I agree. Maria Carey is one of the best singers that ever lived. Weather or not she can still belt it out like she used to it doesn't matter. She has earned her respect in the industry. Honestly from what I have seen of the show so far Nicki is not as bad as I thought she would be. She is actually kind of funny and has made me laugh a few times. I don't like the cat fighting between her and Maria but I am thinking the producers probably like it because conflict brings publicity so they probably encourage it a bit.

i believe mariah was supposed to be the only female judge but then they suddenly added nicki minaj. i think the feud is real but the producers really liked it because of the publicity that the show is gonna get.

I have never heard Nicki Minaj's music and I don't watch Idol. I don't care for the type of music that Mariah Carey does but I do respect her as a talented and professional artist. The only reason I even recognize the name Nicki Minaj is for all the negative comments I've heard about her as well as the ridiculous dramatics that she has going on with Mariah Carey. Then she had that incident where she accused Steven Tyler of being racist which for me pretty much told me the type of person she was.
