Mariah Carey to Nicki Minaj: We’re Not Feuding…YET

Before it was confirmed that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban would be joining the American Idol judges panel, there were rumors that Nicki would NEVER join Idol because she and Mariah had a divas feud!

It all seemed very believable, but when you think about it, what would they be feuding about? They’ve only known each other for like 48 hours?

“How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer,” Carey told reporters at a press conference for Idol last night.

So, let me get this straight: There’s no feud, but they will probably cook one up later in the season because never before on Idol have they had THAT much diva in one judges panel. I mean, you could argue that Steven Tyler and Simon Cowell was TOO MUCH DIVA, but Mariah and Nicki is a whole other divas ballgame.

As for Miss. Minaj herself, she told reporters, “it’s wonderful, darling,” when asked how she’s liking her two days of working on the show.

Apparently everything is just puppies and roses over at Idol with Mariah adding that, “it’s music. It’s singing. It’s laughter” and Randy Jackson saying, “We’re having fun, dude. We’ve been having a good time. There have been a lot of laughs.”

Most pointless press junket ever, this could have easily been summed up as “American Idol is fun.”

However, the best gem to come out of this is that a source close to production told People that Mariah Carey sings whenever she’s backstage in the judges’ room.

Can’t keep a diva down!
