As we gear up for the Season 12 premiere of American Idol, the feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj is coming to light again.
Carey talked a little bit about their blowup fight that happened in October while they were sitting on the Idol judging panel with Randy Jackson and Keith Urban.
She told The Hollywood Reporter, “Sometimes things get heated for their own reasons," adding, "I don't think the panel has an issue."
Moreover, Minaj talked about her own side of the fight, saying "I am scary and intimidating. I definitely demand respect. I'm also a sweet person. I'm a loving person. But I don't want to be f---ed with,” MTV News reports.
She also seemed to reignite some of the tension between she and Carey when asked if she thinks she dresses too sexy for the show.
"I could think of at least one other person that shows more cleavage and skin than me,” she said.
The new season of Idol starts Jan. 16. Season 11’s winner was Phillip Phillips, who’s enjoying success from his single “Home.”
