Nicki Minaj’s Profanity-Laced Rant at Mariah Carey on “American Idol”

Posted Wednesday October 3, 2012 9:08 AM GMT

She’s never been one to hold her tongue, and Nicki Minaj went off on Mariah Carey during “American Idol” auditions last night (October 2).

The “Pink Friday” rapper apparently disagreed with the “Always Be My Baby” songstress over one of the contestants, prompting her to launch into an expletive-laden tirade.

In the just-released video, Nicki proclaims, “I told them, I’m not f**king with her f**kin’ highness over there,” referring to Carey.

Minaj also later declared, “I’m gonna knock you out,” per an on-set source. After the whole debacle, Mariah tweeted, simply, “whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.”
