Young Money’s Nicki Minaj has kept active on Twitter this week, not only going after “American Idol” celebrity judge Mariah Carey but now shooting some disses toward an entertainment reporter.
Access Hollywood writer Laura Saltman penned an open post on her issues with Minaj’s lack of professionalism.
Despite the fact that most of the time Nicki actually does give good critiques, the show didn’t’ need Nicki. Randy Jackson on the left side. Mariah in the middle. Keith Urban on the right side. That’s a panel that would have worked. Randy and Mariah have a long standing relationship and Keith is so kind-hearted, there would have been a good chemistry set up between the three. If “The Voice” has taught us anything, it’s that reality competition shows have evolved. Cutting people down isn’t what audiences are connecting to anymore. Nicki’s special brand of snark may no longer fit in the world of reality TV mentors. (Access Hollywood)
Cleary upset by the critique, Minaj lashed out at Saltman’s column with a slew of tweets.
“Honestly, if your day was really RUINED because i walked away from a question, rather than discuss something negative, u need a LIFE. Lmao,” she tweeted May 3rd.
“Yo @LilTunechi. This hoe want some trukfit. @LauraSaltman”
“Like…why? I spk to these ppl every single week. Go above and beyond! And the one time i ignore your ignorance u try to paint a bad pic?”
“like that man Billy Bush…like r u the fake ryan seacrest? like my g, who the fuk r u? lmao. i gotta laugh at this shit. i swear to God”
“I used to let these ppl say whatever they wanted about me, not anymore. I am blessed & highly favored, not afraid of losing your acceptance”
“I wldve respected her had she pulled me aside like a BOSS. But going to your “friends” to have them lash out against me on TV? grow up hoe” (Nicki Minaj’s Twitter)
Those comments prompted Laura to reveal a threat she received from a perceived Minaj fan.
“”@MICHOLEKEMP: @LauraSaltman I’ll kill u. For @NICKIMINAJ come to Atlanta hoe” here is a tweet everyone should see.”
“So disturbing the hate some people have in their veins. I think my last retweet shows that. Very sad when it comes to this. Done. Goodnight” (Laura Saltman’s Twitter)
This week, Minaj decided to clown Mariah over her Twitter account.
The ego clash between warring American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj just became more heated. On Thursday, Minaj went public with personal — and extremely harsh — insults against Carey, referencing The Hollywood Reporter’s scoop last week that Idol execs had sought to replace Carey with Jennifer Lopez. Responding to Twitter backlash, Minaj urged her followers to start “asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter.” (Hollywood Reporter)
