No beef between Mariah and Nicki

Beef? What beef? As far as Mariah Carey is no concerned, there’s no conflict to be even discussed.
Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban were confirmed as final additions to the judging panel on American Idol this week, leaving the team ready to film season 12 auditions in New York City. Early whispers from the set pit Nicki and fellow judge Mariah Carey against each other, but Carey says there’s no truth to that, according to MTV.

MTV News paid a visit to the Idol set at Lincoln Centre last Monday, and the judges — including Minaj and Carey — were all smiles, immediately putting to rest tales of bad blood between the two.

“How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out,” Mariah responded, laughing, when asked if she and the YMCMB rapper were seeing eye-to-eye. “It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter,” she added, while Minaj chuckled along with her, looking amused at the beef rumours.

Nicki’s addition to the Idol squad had been rumoured for a few weeks, and on Sunday, she and Keith Urban were officially announced as the final two judges on the panel, joining Mariah Carey and veteran Randy Jackson.
