Jennifer Hudson Likes Mariah Carey on ‘American Idol’; The Others… Not So Much

Jennifer Hudson took a break from updating her thinspiration tumblr and trying to shrink her head down to match her body size this week to let the world what she thinks of the new panel of American Idol judges. My guess (because it’s my own opinion) is that she loves Mariah Carey, who’s a legend, thinks Nicki Minaj is clinically insane/really annoying and couldn’t give two shits about Keith Urban because all she knows is that he’s Nicole Kidman‘s husband and used to be an alcoholic.

Well, what do you say – am I right? Do I win the special prize?

Via The Daily Mail:

When it comes to the new judges on American Idol, the show’s most famous daughter, Jennifer Hudson, isn’t going overboard with praise.

‘It’s taken a bit to get used to the new judges. I come from American Idol, so I’m used to seeing Simon, Paula and Randy,’ she explained about the latest season during an interview on Live with Kelly & Michael on Friday morning.

‘So now it’s new faces, and to me, [Cowell, Abdul and Jackson] represented the show. It’s kind of awkward for me to see it with new judges.’

They’re ‘awkward’: Jennifer Hudson isn’t keen on the new American Idol judging panel, save for Mariah Carey, she told Kelly and Michael on Friday. But she did have some kind words for diva of divas, Mariah Carey.

‘Well, I’m happy that [Mariah Carey]‘s there because she’s a singer, so she knows what to expect, how to judge, even the position that the kids are in when they’re auditioning,’ she said.

But when asked about Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj – both successful artists, both singers – she could only respond with a vague, ‘Ummmm, yes.’

Listen, Idol has been dead in the water for at least the past three seasons and throwing the biggest stars in the world on that panel is not going to save it. Let it die, Fox. Mariah’s head is soon going to inflate too big to fit in the door, Nicki is going to go full-blown schizophrenic and Keith will be driven to return to drink. I don’t know what the hell Randy Jackson is going to do. Probably end up homeless on the corner, begging for “food, dawg“.

Nicki Minaj Is A Diva And Now She Doesn’t Have A Hairstylist

I am sorry, but Nicki Minaj is just the worst. She really is. There was the time that she threw a fit because the grass outside of a dressing room was too long to walk on. And that time that she told her own fans that they should “eat shit and die.” And that time that she and her boyfriend yelled awful things at a maid and then pushed her around. The. Worst.

She’s so bad that her hairstylist and wig guy, Terrence Davidson, decided to quit. Here’s his statement:

“I’ve decided to step away as hair stylist and wig creator for Nicki Minaj. It has been an amazing experience offering me a chance to express my creativity and exhibit my love for the art form of wig design.”

Nobody from Nicki’s camp has commented on this yet, but I don’t really think this is a great situation. I mean, just think of how great of a position this guy was in. He has a love for wig design, and he worked personally for Nicki Minaj. Can you think of anyone else that famous who wears that many innovative wigs? Because I sure can’t. But he gave it up. Probably because Nicki is the worst.

Quotables: T-Boz from TLC Has No Love for Nicki Minaj

“Just because you’re on TV gyrating and boning and sucking penises, it’s not talent, honey. Maybe in the porn industry, but over here, we entertain. I don’t respect half the people I’ve seen lately. How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her ass can’t even sing? Why is she there? Now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging. So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again.”

- The great T-Boz on how she doesn’t care for Nicki Minaj, Nicki Minaj’s American Idol gig, or most singers nowadays.

Even though T-Boz was always my least favorite member of TLC – Left Eye was my fave, may she rest in peace, and then Chilli – I still have way more respect for her than I do for Nicki Minaj. I just don’t get Nicki, not even a little bit, and there’s no way that her “Super Bass” or her “Starships” will ever come close to TLC’s catchy but poignant hits like “Waterfalls” or “Unpretty.” Not in a million years.

Also, I’m going to start telling every single person in my life “get your money, honey.” When I see my doctor tomorrow and she tells me that I need to stop being so crazy, I’m going to just shrug and say “get your money, honey,” and when I’m making dinner tonight and my cat decides to use the litter box right when I’m about to eat LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES, instead of being grossed out, I’m just going to look at him and say “get your money, honey.” Let’s all try it together!

Mariah Carey Ratted on Nicki Minaj to Barbara Walters

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?

Nicki Minaj Threatened to Shoot Mariah Carey

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.

Here’s A Video of Nicki Minaj Yelling at Mariah Carey

Yeah, so I guess this little video just confirms those stories that we heard about Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey being too much diva for one judges table. You know, as if anyone actually doubted those stories.

And just in case you’re having trouble understanding Nicki’s screeching, here’s a transcript:

Nicki Get this shit in self control.  Get in control.  Get in control.
Randy Settle down, settle down
Nicki Don’t lose your head.  Don’t lose your head (inaudible).  Don’t tell me I’m a gangster.
Nicki (inaudible) every 5 minutes.  So every time you patronize me, I’m-ma take it back, and if you’ve got a f-cking problem, handle it.
Nicki I told them I’m not f-ckin’ putting up with her f-cking highness over there.  Figure it the f-ck out.  Figure it out.
Nicki I’m not gonna sit here every f-cking minute to have you come down and harass me every minute everyday.

And this didn’t make it onto the tape, but at one point, Nicki told Mariah “I’m gonna knock you out.” Nothin’ but class here!

You know, I’m sure Mariah did say something bitchy to Nicki, but still, I just don’t see a reason to ever talk to anyone like this. Maybe it’s because I deal with every emotion ever by crying, but I just don’t get all this yelling and screaming and threatening. Like, for instance, this morning my boyfriend and I went to get some breakfast, and this guy behind us almost hit our car, and then he almost hit us in the parking lot, all because he was driving like an asshole. And then he got out of his car and yelled “f-ck you, bitch!” at my boyfriend, because, you know, that’s the reasonable thing to do. Oh, then he threatened to “bust open” my boyfriend’s head. Why do people do that? Why is that ever a thing that needs to happen?

So basically, I’m pretty pumped for this new season of American Idol. If this was Twitter, I’d say “#addicted2thedramz” right now, but since it’s not, I’ll just leave it at that.

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Are Already Throwing Down

From TMZ:

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago — there’s only room for one diva on “American Idol.”

Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first “A.I.” taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt — not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.

One “A.I.” spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, “These girls just don’t like each other.”

You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.

Well if I can’t get a big fat “duh” slapped right over Mariah‘s smug little diva face—and over Nicki‘s stupid, trout-pout bug-eyed leer, because seriously. Who in their right minds would seriously think this would be a good idea for the contestants of the show? No one’s going to be paying attention to the talent this year; it’s all going to be about Mariah and Nicki’s never-ending bitchfests about one another on and off-camera.

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again—no amount of psychotic estrogen can bring American Idol back from the dead. The producers should be ashamed of themselves.
