Nicki Minaj has been taking all kinds of shots since her American Idol judging gig. From co-host Mariah Carey, Barbara Walters and now Steven Tyler. The ex Aerosmith leader added his two cents on she and Mariah’s feud. He also made some remarks that Nicki took as racist. Take a sip on this tea.
Tyler said the new panel of judges would have thrown Bob Dylan off the show. “You just have to give your opinion … These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they’re in New York City, they’re scared to death. If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips.”
Nicki took to her Twitter and ranted. “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!”
“I understand you really wanted to keep your job, but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment.”
“You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go fuck yourself and worry about yourself babe.”
“LOL lets make him a shirt that says “No Coloreds Allowed” then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns”
“When Steven 1st went on Idol he was ridiculed by his peers & fans alike. Called a sell out. So what does he do? Ridicule the next judge.”
I guess Steven couldn’t take what was thrown back at him and apologized to Nicki on E! Talk. Tyler said he isn’t racist and doesn’t know where she got that from. Take a peep at the video below.
