Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Come Together at TCA Tour

Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, and Nicki Minaj

It’s a good thing Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have settled their differences because they have a long week of promotion ahead of them leading up to the January 16 premiere of “American Idol.” The dueling divas took a seat alongside fellow judges Randy Jackson and Keith Urban during the 2013 Winter TCA (Television Critics Association) Tour at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena on Tuesday.

Mariah was glowing in a short green dress, while Nicki rocked a black wig and Louboutins, fielding questions about their feud and their participation in America’s No. 1 show.

When asked how they put aside their beef, Nicki joked, “I put on my sex tape,” while Mimi had a more serious answer. “I think time sorts everything,” she said.

When asked if she would have auditioned for “Idol,” Mariah said no because she would have been “shy and unpolished.” Nicki concurred, saying that she didn’t see the show fitting for rappers. “Rap and hip-hop is completely different from ‘American Idol,’” she explained. “So I would never go on this show as a rapper.”

The judges will participate in a Livestream session with fans on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. EST.

    If Nicki Minaj agrees that “Rap & Hip Hop is completely different from Idol” why the fuck did she sign a contract to judge idol contestants?

    @Lamb4Life, she was clearly talking about the contestants…if only singers could judge singers…Simon, Randy, Ellen, etc would never have been there

    YES! Everyone seems to overlook this fact.

    @Trev, Simon and Ellen own record companies and Simon and Randy are both very experienced in the music business. Their positions as judges were rightfully earned. Nicki is a rapper who virtually just got in the business, and doesn’t own or have any leadership role in a successful record company…so….

    @Oh, Agreed About Mariah. She Looks Like A Fat Cow. But Nicki On The Other Hand Takes Care Of Her Body. I Don’t Think She Looks Anorexic, She Just Has A Personal Trainer & Nutritionist & Watches Her Weight. She Looks Really Good.

    I don’t get it at all. Mariah lost all that weight last year and was promoting Jenny Craig all of 2012. She really took “new year, new me” to the head. Nicki on the other hand looks gorgeous. And the critics LOVED her. One question though. Why is it that Nicki is supposedly a bad judge because she’s a rapper, but Ellen judged Idol and she knows NOTHING about music? At least Nicki CAN sing. Sure, she’s no Mariah. But she’s a great singer. Half of Pink Friday Roman Reloaded is singing and pop. Anyway, I’m really excited for Idol.

    PLEASE be reminded Mariah had kids and doesn’t have silicone in her system. When y’all get past that, THEN compare her to someone way behind. I’m sure y’all look skinny standing up and your rolls roll out when you sit. It’s life! You can handle it by sucking it in or tights. I’ve seen Nicki’s rolls so SIT. Mariah looked AMAZING on GMA.

    [Reply]

    Tamar Reply:

    @…, Yeah, she had kids but she had kids a while ago. She looked curvy and thin 2 months ago and now she’s just fat. Sure, Nicki uses silicone on her hips and bottom but her stomach, legs, chest, and arms are all her and she makes sure they are all on point.

    So where are Nicki’s bleaching accusations now?

    [Reply]

  18. Tamar

    Nicki looks BEAUTIFUL!! I LOVE when she wears black wigs. It brings out her features! She looks BROWN too (shade to the bleaching accusations). Mariah looks… okay. Kinda… chubby though? And I’m not feeling that “I’m-wrapped-up-in-a-blanket-looking-dress”

    Nicki should stick to black wigs, for once she looks like a human being. But my dear Mariah needs to fire whoever keeps giving her these tight dresses! She needs a stylist who understands her body shape.

  21. NickiStan

    Lol Nic where’s regular clothes all the time lol I guess you’d have to be a for real, for real fan to notice. However, when she brings out the black wig that’s when you act extra lol The black wigs always POP!

    Nic looks gorgeous!
