Nicki Minaj Fires Back at Steven Tyler for ‘American Idol’ Remarks

Steven Tyler and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is not one to hold her tongue. The Young Money rapper is firing back at former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler after he slammed her and the new “Idol” judges.

“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!” the Aerosmith frontman told MTV News. “Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with ['Idol' contestant] Phillip Phillips.”

Tyler, who was an “Idol” judge alongside Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, further criticized the new judging panel, which includes Nicki, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, and Jackson. “They should have something going on, which is called ‘camaraderie.’ They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself. It needs to be birthed, not judged by ‘entertainment’ factors, it needs to be judged by people that [are] honest, true, that have the ‘it’ factor. Not the ‘it’ factor because they can fight,” he said, referring to Nicki’s infamous feud with Mariah.

After getting wind of the comments, Nicki took to Twitter to respond. “Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!” she tweeted.

The newest “Idol” judge did not let him get away with his offensive remarks. “You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go fuck yourself and worry about yourself babe,” she said.

“LOL lets make him a shirt that says ‘No Coloreds Allowed’ then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns,” she added, referring to Mariah’s comments to “The View” host.

“I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment.”

Tyler exited the show after two seasons. Nicki will make her judging debut when the 12th season of “American Idol” premieres in January.

    *Sigh. Nicki needs to read a page from Beyonce’s book of publicity and stop responding to every negative thing that is said about her. Pulling the “race card” is not a good look, just ignore it and move forward.

    @cece, it’s not racist. He thinks nicki minaj is all about the pop self-marketing and not actually about talent, which is true. Watch the video for stupid hoe, you can’t possibly think that the girl in that video should be the one deciding what ‘talent’ is.
    Steven tyler has done countless concerts with run-DMC, African Americans who are actually talented. Plus, he’s never had a problem with randy jackson. I’m sure he wouldn’t have had a problem with someone like lupe fiasco or maxwell being the new judge on idol, because they’re actually about the talent and not the gimmicks.
    You stans would do anything to avoid the hard truth that your favorite artist is not talented and is only famous because they can brainwash people like you with their publicity stunts.

    @XO till we overdose, didn’t read the whole comment but i really don’t want to lol…the first sentence is enough…American Idol has NEVER been about just talent…they always talk about “the whole package”…you have to know how to present and market yourself as well as being talented

    anyway Steven attacked her first yet only Nicki is being attacked on blogs…what else is new though?

    @Trev, Not even taking 30 seconds to read a comment before replying to it and trying to act like you’re right, that’s sad. Steven Tyler has worked with Run-DMC, Randy Jackson, bob marley among others. why’s he racist just because he attacked nicki?

    Dro Reply:

    @XO till we overdose…, The whole “I can’t be racist because I have black friends/know black people argument is tired”. He worked with Run DMC when he was coming out of Rehab and the collaboration made Aerosmith relevant again. Working with somebody black does not make you not racist. It’s plenty of racists who work with blacks just to get a check. And a multi million dollar check? Oh yeah.

    I don’t think Steven’s racist but it was a dumb ass comment. And as stated above American Idol is all about image making. Every winner has been geared and pushed towards a specific genre and image. Let’s not go there about talent. Because where are most of these “talented” winners at now?

    Trev Reply:

    @Trev, racist isn’t that right word…she should have said “stereotypical”…there was no reason for him to attack her…and why would Nicki “send Bob Dylan to the cornfield”…he thinks she’s not cultured because she’s a rapper, black, and current

    [Reply]

    XO till we overdose Reply:

    @Trev, no… He thinks nicki isn’t cultured because she isn’t. She throws tantrums on twitter calling people demeaning names because they don’t like her music. Plenty of rappers are cultured. Plenty of black people are cultured. Plenty of current artists are cultured. For example: jay-z, j. cole & lupe fiasco
    Stop blaming racism into random topics to avoid accepting your favorite artist’s talentlessness.

    Trev Reply:

    @Trev, i just said i† wasn’t racism…also you clearly do not know what it means to be cultured…tweets has nothing to do with being cultured…and all those rappers are fans of this “talentless” rapper you speak of

    @XO till we overdose, Oh God…where can I start… Look, Nicki Minaj worked VERY hard to get where she is now. She knows about the obstacles, the criticism, the everything. She knows it and she will teach the contestants too. Besides, she HAS talent, but you are too busy complaining about Stupid Hoe and you don’t actually check her good videos. People make mistakes. She has a great voice, she can write her own lyrics, and she CAN rap. If you don’t believe that, I’ll be happy to give you proof. Please stop talking only about Stupid Hoe like it’s her only song.

    @7TheBest, want me to talk about other songs? Fine. I loved moment 4 life. I’m sure she has other songs I’d like too. But let’s remember that the show is called “American Idol”. Do you understand how bad America would be if nicki minaj was the artist everyone looked up to? It’ll be filled with bratty kids wearing revealing clothes calling each other demeaning names. It’s unlikely she’ll be supporting an artist that is a good idol for Americans and there are many other more respectable artists that are more fit for the job.

And it’s known in the industry that her ego is larger than life. #INSIDER

    [Reply]

    OhPlease Reply:

    @7TheBest, Actually they are not selling the “re-release” because the two previous discs didn’t move the way they expected them too. Target and Walmart are filled with “re-releases” by other artists. This is about her sales. She knows that the last one didn’t do well. I don’t know why, from a business standpoint she would do a “re-up” in a tight economy and then sell it for $17.00 around the holidays. It wasn’t well thought out at all.

Tbh, the only songs with bad lyrics of Nicki are Stupid Hoe, Come On A Cone, Beez In The Trap (kinda) and I Am Your Leader (kinda). I don’t think that an artist’s talent should be denied just because of 4 bad songs. But people refuse to check her other good songs…

Thats why this bitch is always attacked and ridiculed. She single handedly ruined the direction of female hip hop music and hip hop music in general. How does this generation even enjoy her music i dont understand. Nothing else needs to be said. IM DONE. Now whoever chooses to reply to this comment go right ahead i wont be here to read it.

    CLOCK HA NICKI!

    In all seriousness, Tyler’s comments, especially the cornfield comment, weren’t needed. I can easily see how that could be taken offensively to a black person.

    It’s funny because Nicki doesn’t even start half the shit that comes her way. She just needs to learn how to not take the bait when people make stupid comments like Tyler’s.

    [Reply]

    OhPlease Reply:

    @T, Steven Tyler was actually referring to Bob Dylan’s actual origins – in the country. He’s a country boy. He also gave a nod to the fact that Dylan is not the best performer in the world. His comment was aimed at the judges ability to “nurture” raw talent. Apparently he thinks that Nicki may be lacking in that department. Perhaps this is based on her antics to date or whatever footage he may have seen or heard about that we have not. In any case, there was no racism in his comments but there was plenty of ignorance in her response. She didn’t go deeper to figure out what he meant. She jumped to a conclusion in the same way that he supposed that she would had she been asked to judge Bob Dylan. She proved his point.

    it was racist for him to say she would have sent him back to the “cornfield” all bc hes a country singer. she may very well like country music, but he assumed she wouldnt be open to it bc shes a “black rapper from Queens,New York”. how does he know she wouldn’t like his music when he hasn’t even seen her judge anyone yet. let her live and do her. she’s trying to work hard to build herself a brand like he did, so what gives him the right to make such comments about her work ethic in being a judge

The comment wasn’t predicated on race, it was her (and this generations) general attitudes and demeanor. Little pop queens on fuck with Dylan wearing a vintage concert t shirt because they thought it looked cool and made them look deep without actually appreciating the substance of his work like most kids today do. There is no denying that that’s what it came down too.

    Why is it that when Nicki defends herself there is always a problem? If you want respect you have to GIVE respect Steven’s racist comment was uncalled for and i see nobody coming at him about what he said but everyone has a problem with a AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN DEFENDING HERSELF and the only reason some of you are siding with Steven is because you don’t like Nicki Minaj well how about you guys stop thinking about that for a second and actually stand by what’s actually RIGHT.

  12. ...

    This is why I can’t be a fan of Nicki Minaj.

    I want to love her because I’m always into a female rapper doing big things and whatnot; we have far too few in the industry as is, so if a little girl picks up a microphone wanting to be like Nicki, more power to her.

    But she’s a crybaby. Every celebrity on Earth, no matter who they are, gets talked about. Every one of them. And nobody has 100% positive things said about them – go on Twitter for 5 seconds and you can find people talking bad about anybody you can think of.

    Which is why her victim complex is so irritating. Boo, you wanted this visibility – you signed endorsement deals, you made plastic pop music, and you agreed to be on the biggest show on TV because you want people to know who you are. But that all doesn’t happen in a vacuum; you don’t get exempt from criticism due to having a big bank account. It comes with the territory.

    This woman invites the spotlight and the second she’s not fawned over, she turns into a defensive little diva with much too much time on her hands, acting like people are coming at her more than other people. Try being Beyonce for a day. Heck, try being Obama, who gets more trash talked about him in one day than Nicki’ll have in her entire career. Nicki could do herself a world of good by simply turning the other cheek and keep smiling, rather than making herself look bad at every turn; not everything is worth throwing a tantrum over, particularly something as minor as this.

    And especially when she can’t get Mariah’s name out of her mouth when Mariah has paid this girl dust for weeks on end.

    Nicki needs to either grow a thicker skin or get a 9-5, because responding to every comment that’s not lavishing her with praise makes her look sad, insecure, and extremely desperate.

    –She’s not a crybaby. Sometimes, she just decides to defend herself when she feels the need to. I’m sure she knows not to expect 100% of positive feedback. People everyday diss Nicki Minaj and sometimes, once in a while, she chooses to respond. She ignored Gucci Mane, Azealia, ignored Lola Monroe when she dissed her, ignored DMX, and a whole bunch of other people. She knows how to ignore people, but when she feels she should defends herself, she does so.
    Every celebrity has defended themselves multiple times. Beyonce responded to harry belafonte, ellen responded to one million moms, tyra banks responded to janice dickinson, chris brown.. well you can read that for yourself. But you cannot blame a person for defending themselves. SHE’S HUMAN.

    Great post. The key is not to respond. She put herself out there for public consumption. The fact is that there are many who will not like her. That’s a given for any artist. Those who rise above it all and keep doing there thing are the ones who will ultimately join the ranks of those who are “timeless”. She should focus on her business and stop tweeting. I seriously think Twitter is going to be the downfall of a lot of artists. It’s too easy to put something out there that you can never take back.

    I understand that the “cornfield” comment is really heavy-handed, and maybe he’s bitter about not being there anymore (maybe, because I don’t know anything about this situation), but the meaning of his words weren’t racist, I believe.

    It was terribly scornful and classless though, because he implied she can’t recognize any kind of talent outside of the spectrum of Hip-Hop (or whatever type of music she’s doing right now) and of the “obvious”. You gotta admit Nicki Minaj’s a bit of a hothead haha. Telling him to “go fuck himself” is a bit strong perhaps. LOL That’s my opinion though.

    @Smith, But they’re not entitled to respect her just like she’s not entitled to respect them (which is pretty obvious she doesn’t).

    Just because they all contribute to the “music industry” doesn’t mean their all suppose to like one another.

    That’s like saying just because 5,000 people go to one school that all 5,000 people are suppose to love and respect one another. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Just like they “dislike” her, i’m pretty sure it was people who “disliked” them as well. That’s apart of life.

    Nicki is a nobody who looks like cyndi lauper in drag and wish she had half of other female mc’s swag that came before her…she needs to calm down!

    That is extremely stereotypical of Tyler but I wouldn’t give anything that comes out of his mout the time of day. He’s always been a dumb ass. This just proves it. He’s bitter because he got traded in for more talented (Mariah) & younger (Nicki) models. He wouldn’t dare come at Mariah. He now know Nicki ain’t an easy target or a dickhead. I’m so sure he spent his judging time chasing girls young enough to be his Grand daughter with his fucked up face.

    OhPlease Reply:

    @opd2, He’s not racist. He actually knows Bob Dylan’s history and knows that Bob Dylan is a country boy — thus the reference to the “cornfield”. Every time someone mentions a “field” they are not being racist. She needs to grow up and actually think before she tweets. Always defaulting to “they don’t like me because I’m black” is lazy and ignorant. Idol went for a gimmic when they chose Nicki. They wanted someone to add “drama” and to appeal to a younger audience. I don’t know that younger viewers will tune in on a regular basis so they may have gone this route for nothing. The other judges are proven in the industry (decades) whereas Nicki is somewhat new. New isn’t bad but she does have to prove that she can bring something other than drama if her peers at the table are going to take her seriously; same thing applies to the older viewers.

    “Wishing someone away into a cornfield” is a reference to an old Twilight Zone episode where a little boy did the same thing. Steven probably thought of something as innocent as that, applied it to Nicki’s situation, and was misunderstood. People need to stop freaking out over this “racist attack,” and Nicki needs a lesson in PR. That 1st episode of her E! Special did not show her in a positive light, and I believe she needs to grow.

    And to further prove my point, no one would say this about Jay Z because he’s respected. Listen to him speak, and you know something is going on in his head and he’s multi faceted. He’s not a joke, not a hot headed kid, and has left that hood/fight everybody mentality behind.

    As much as Nicki wants to brag about how she’s come up, she needs to act like it and more importantly, like a thirty year old adult who has positive things going for themselves.

    She’s a juvenile, hot head. And if she’s misunderstood, it’s her fault. It’s exactly what happens when you put image, colors, a big ass, and crap music before your talent. If this was Lauryn Hill after the Miseducation or Missy, it’d be “they’re talented or they know how to treat people and they’re respectable” instead of the crap we deal with here. She’s made a joke out of herself to catch a break and this is how it comes bike to bite you in your artificial butt.

    I’m a Nicki fan, but I’m totally against her judging American Idol. Nicki can carry a tune, but she’s not a singer. She also has a career she should be focusing on. Now this Steven Tyler mess…I got what he was saying, but his message was overshadowed by the jab he decided to take at Nicki. He was wrong for that. However, Nicki eventually you’re gonna have to grow up and leave the childish antics behind. I don’t get why she threw the race card around. To the people still calling her racist for “Stupid Hoe”, if you sang Project Pat’s “Chicken Head”, have a seat cuz calling someone a baldheaded scally wag is just as offensive as calling someone a nappy headed hoe. Point blank, Nicki and Mariah you have your dream so allow these contestants to achieve theirs. When did it stop being about the music?

    [Reply]

  60. AllAmerykhanBoy

    Nicki is under no obligation to be nice. In fact, this expectation that a female judge needs to be nice, is very suspect, especially when we keep in mind how much Simon Cowell was lauded for his nastiness. Expecting niceness from a female judge, yet celebrating nastiness from a male one, is just straight up sexist.
    Let’s wait for episodes to start airing for us to see whether her criticisms are on point or not. If not, then by all means, read her for filth. But if they are, and you still want to come for her, take a minute to reflect on the sexist blinders that make people expect a female in public to be extremely sugary sweet lest she be labelled a “bitch”.
    Getting mouthy with Mariah isn’t a very smart move if she were a pop singer, but rappers thrive on conflict. And that’s assuming that the beef is even real. Even Mariah’s husband Nick has expressed skepticism that a closed set would allow some random crew member to film them on their camera phone close up for several minutes without anyone noticing. It seems more like something the producers are manipulating Nicki and Mariah’s public personae into, rather than a real thing.
