The recent American Idol feud between ex-judge Steven Tyler and new judge Nicki Minaj has simmered down thanks to Tyler’s public apology. He states that he was not looking for a feud and he deeply apologizes if his remarks came off as racist.
On Tuesday, the rocker spoke on eTalk, a Canadian entertainment show, and said, "I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki," according to E News.
He previously criticized Minaj for her eye for talent; Saying she would have sent the iconic folk-rock singer Bob Dylan “to the cornfield" if he'd come on Idol. He insists her meant no harm, only "if Bob Dylan came on the show, he would've been thrown off."
Tyler continued, “But I am the farthest from [being a racist… I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. I don't know where she got that out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan," reports IMDb.
The “Va Va Voom” singer has yet to respond to Tyler’s apology.
