Can you imagine such a horrible thing, not caring for your own wife’s safety? Well, you don’t have to imagine it, because it’s real, and it’s happening right now in the beautiful union of Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey. Nick, if you can believe it, has said that he “wasn’t concerned” about the very real death threats that Nicki Minaj made to Mariah. Mariah, who was scared enough to talk to Barbara Walters about how she had to hire more security. What’s up, Nick?
Did any of you guys watch The View today? Because while I normally don’t, I happened to catch part of it, and it was probably the most relevant part of The View that’s ever aired for me.
On The View, Barbara Walters revealed that Mariah Carey confirmed—to her—that Nicki Minaj threatened her life on the ‘American Idol’ set, saying, “If I had a gun I would shoot the bitch,” meaning Nicki would shoot Mariah, had she a firearm on her person. I mean, there’s really no other way to take that, right? I’m not off by a few meanings because of some hip, new Young Money slang that actually happens to mean “I love this woman and I’d take a bullet for her,” right? OK. Moving on. So because of Nicki’s “death threat,” Mariah told Barbara that she went and amped up her security team, but says she feels that Nicki loves her anyway. WTF, right? I know. I don’t get it, either.
When Nicki heard the news earlier today, she fired off the following Tweets:
I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave
I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.
I’m really feeling the “love” here, too, guys, aren’t you?
In case you missed it yesterday, there’s the video of Nicki Minaj yelling at Mariah Carey during auditions for American Idol. Which, by the way, we’re now hearing that the whole thing started because Mariah wouldn’t stop “bringing up how many records she’s sold, name dropping people she’s worked with, how many tours she’s done, and how many Grammys or awards she’s won,” and she kept calling Nicki a bitch. This is going to be excellent television, isn’t it?
But yeah, now we’re also hearing that during Nicki’s rant, she said “if I had a gun I would shoot her.” And apparently, if you listen closely to the video, you can hear Nicki say “off with your head!” People from Idol are saying that Nicki never said that thing about the gun though, and that that rumor started because “Mariah’s people are stirring the pot.” Love it, love it, love it.
Lastly, Nicki feels like the producers are trying to use Mariah to get her riled up so that she’ll have awesome outbursts (see above) and bring in more viewers, which I’m not sure is the case. I think Mariah is just that much of a diva, and the outbursts are just a bonus. But Nicki has reportedly said that if she ever feels like the producers are trying to set her up for another outburst, she’ll walk off the set.
Finally, you guys. Finally we have a reason to watch American Idol again.
