Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne briefly addressed the short-lived dispute between his Young Money protégé Nicki Minaj and her “American Idol” fellow panelist Mariah Carey.
Along with speaking on his disinterest in their nixed problems, Weezy F. Baby also said he is not a regular “American Idol” viewer.
Lil Wayne trusted Nicki Minaj’s judgment when she said “American Idol” was not his type of show due to its drama. That’s why the Young Money rap mogul didn’t watch the singing competition even though his former protege was on it as part of the judging panel. “When I talk to her she’s always tells me, ‘You don’t wanna watch that, you’re not going to be into it,’ ” he told the Associated Press. “She knows me. … It’s kind of like a catfight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I’m not into all that,” he referred to her feud with fellow judge Mariah Carey.

Last month, both Nicki and Mariah briefly addressed their publicized war of words.
One critic asked each woman to say something nice about the other. While the crowd held their breath, Minaj began, calling Carey one of her favorite all-time artists and the shaper of a generation of singers. Carey seemed to have more trouble talking about something other than herself but eventually got around to talking about working with Minaj on a single and realizing that Minaj was an artist who would go far. That single: “Up Out My Face.” Carey called the title “ironic.” (Washington Post)
Nicki turned things up a notch when she playfully brought up the impact her alleged sex tape had on bringing them together.
One critic wondered how they came to kiss and make up. “I put on my sex tape,” Minaj responded. “And, there it is,” Carey said, rolling her eyes. The cacophony that ensued made it hard to understand what the two women were saying. Carey appeared to be talking about everyone being able to agree on the wonderfulness of her new shoes — also Louboutins, only strappier and not so high as Minaj’s and with little puffs at the toe. Minaj, meanwhile, continued to discuss the merits of her sex tape as a peacekeeping device. (Washington Post)
Back in November, Minaj promised things between her and Mariah had cooled over.
Hold up, hold up, hold up. Cue the Big Sean ad-lib, please, because Nicki just professed her “love” for the people on “Idol.” Did that include her co-panelist Mariah Carey, who she dubbed “Shady McGrady” during an epic Twitter rant last month, which was fueled by a leaked set video that captured the two divas dueling? So we asked the MC whether she and MC had patched things up. “We’ve been fine,” Minaj said, exasperation creeping into her voice. (MTV)
