Mariah Carey Vents To Barbara Walters, Nicki Minaj Spews On Twitter

This Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj “American Idol” feud is getting REAL. Mimi talked privately to Barbara Walters, who told the whole world about their convo this morning on “The View.” Allegedly Nicki said something about shooting Mimi with a gun. Yikes. [Vulture]
And then Nicki responded to the gun allegations the way any reasonable…

Nicki Minaj Threatens To Knock Mariah Carey Out At “American Idol” Auditions

TMZ’s grainy video of an “American Idol” audition in Charlotte, North Carolina, shows Nicki Minaj losing her temper and yelling at producers, apparently over some perceived slight by Mariah Carey. “I told them I’m not fucking putting up with her fucking highness over there,” Nicki shrieks on the video. According to TMZ, before the…

Is Nicki Minaj A Republican And Voting For Mitt Romney?

Nicki Minaj is supposedly a Republican voting for Mitt Romney (just for financial reasons, though). In a new Lil Wayne mixtape, Nicki raps “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.” Didn’t see that one coming. However, considering Nicki’s next lyrics are about being in Miami “chilling…

Nicki Minaj Tells Fans To “Eat S**t And Die,” Calls Their Mothers “Whores”

Ooh! Classy! Don’t know if you guys follow Nicki on Twitter, but it’s, like, my job to, so when I got a nudge from one of our followers that Nicki went nuclear on a bunch of people calling BS on her “medical issues,” I immediately thought, “Well, there goes American Idol.”
From Nicki’s Twitter, a condensed rant about…

Justin Bieber Is A Butt Man, Likes Nicki Minaj’s

“I think I’m a butt guy. I just like butts. I’m attracted to them … Do I have any favorites? Nicki Minaj has got a nice one.”
– Justin Bieber gives a shout out to Nicki Minaj’s booty in Q Magazine. Not surprising considering he’s admitted to crushing on Beyonce and Kim Kardashian in the past,…

Nicki Minaj Says Asking Her Not To Cuss Is Sexist

“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? Nobody stops them and says ‘Would you stop swearing… for the children, please?’ … I don’t want children cursing. I’m very strict on my nieces and my little brother. They have…

Love It Or Hate It: Nicki Minaj’s Radio-Ready Look

This morning, Nicki Minaj visited the Elvis Duran radio show, and she wore this outfit. It reminded us a lot of something we would have worn on the first day of third grade. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who can say? You can. (Listen to her interview with Elvin here!)…

Would You Wear: Nicki Minaj’s Neon Hair?

Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year…

Ricky Martin Does Some Heavy Lifting

Here’s Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj in a new ad series for M.A.C.’s Viva Glam collection. All sales from their lip conditioner (Ricky’s) and lipstick (Nicki’s) go toward helping families impacted by HIV and AIDS, so it’s a great cause. But aside from that, this ad just makes me really, extremely happy. Look at Ricky…

Nicki Minaj Does Blue (Seafoam?) For Vogue

Tobias Fünke, take note: Nicki Minaj has gone and gotten herself thoroughly blued. She’s a touch more greenish than Tobias, so I don’t suppose she’ll be much of a threat to his very important role in the Blue Man Group. I actually think it looks nice on Nicki, especially with her pastel pink hair, but…

Evening Quickies: Lil’ Kim Calls Nicki Minaj A “Stupid Hoe”

Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” tried so hard to get Lil’ Kim to talk trash about Nicki Minaj. And she valiantly succeeds in not giving in until this snipe: “If you have to make a song called ‘Stupid Hoe’ then you must be a stupid hoe.” Come on, Lil’ Kim! Can we not catfight? Please?

Has Jay-Z Been Moonlighting As Nicki Minaj?

File this one under convincing cases for the existence of the Illuminati: Vice took Nicki Minaj’s video for her new single “Super Bass” and slowed it down, only to discover that it sounds pitch-perfectly like … Jay-Z. You have to hear it to believe it because it’s uncanny, down to the Hov’s recognizable style and…

Nicki Minaj’s “Stupid Hoe” Video Plumbs New Depths Of Ugh

Maybe I am just old, finally. That would be the most reassuring explanation for Nicki Minaj’s seizure-inducing music video for “Stupid Hoe,” a song about … uh … some stupid hoe?
It’s a catchy, poppy rap that’s mostly titillating for being denigrating to women. (Although I’ll admit, “I’m Angelina / you Jennifer / come on,…

Praise Be! Nicki Minaj Gets “Super Grace,” A Pro-Abstinence Parody

Here’s something we didn’t expect: a pro-abstinence Nicki Minaj parody called “Super Grace”! It’s based on “Super Bass” and the Bible, and Jesus Christ himself gets thanked in the comments. Future civilizations will no doubt pour over lyrics like “He’s waiting for the band / He’ll just hold my hand … I want to be…

Nicki Minaj Look Oddly Regal On The Cover Of W

Big news for Nicki Minaj fans (aren’t we all?): the hip-hop starlet has scored the cover of her first “serious” fashion magazine, appearing in the November issue of W. Artist Francesco Vezzoli transformed the photos, as has become his style, so that Minaj embodied that of “a powdered 18th-century courtesan.” The photos are striking, a little strange,…

If You Don’t Cry At Nicki Minaj Surprising The “Super Bass” Girls On “Ellen,” You Have No Heart

Not going to lie: this video of Nicki Minaj surprising the ballerina dress-clad “Super Bass” girls on Ellen DeGenere’s talk show made me start crying at my desk. They performed “Super Bass” for Ellen’s audience (watch here) and then she told them that Nicki was there to meet them. Sophia Grace, 8, and Rosie, 5,…
