In case you were wondering whether Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey still hate each other, the answer is YES. ALL THE YES. So of course, FOX had them together for a press junket to promote the 12th season of American Idol, which predominantly featured Mariah throwing shade at Nicki while Nicki just sat around making stink-faces. So yeah, this seems like it’ll be a healthy, professional atmosphere. From MTV UK

The pair then referenced their infamous war of words last October, with both Mariah and the Young Money star stating they have decided to put the incident behind them as it “distracts” from the show. However, Carey later described it as “a one-sided thing”, leaving the Minaj to retaliate: “No, it wasn’t! See? They don’t want a rising star, they want drama.” The Mail adds that throughout the press conference, Mariah and Nicki both ‘rolled their eyes’ at each other’s remarks, while also throwing looks at each other. Fellow panelist Keith Urban was positioned in between the women in a bid to keep the peace, as Mariah wore a green, strapless dress in comparison to Nicki’s glitzy gold frock.

I never thought I would feel bad for Keith Urban, but here we are. That poor guy was like the doomed meat between two slices of whole-hate bread. Personally, if you stuck me in the middle of Mariah and Nicki’s bitch fight, I would have filled my little Coca-Cola cup with hemlock tea and just finished the deal. “Oh God, they’re going at it again. Welp, I’m out. Good luck Randy!”
