Nicki Minaj Addresses Barbara Walters, Denies Threatening Mariah Carey
Nicki Minaj is not happy with Barbara Walters. Reporting on her recent spat with fellow “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey, Walters revealed that Carey was forced to increase her security detail after Minaj allegedly threatened her life, referring to the Young Money rapper as “unpredictable.”
In the second installment of the Minaj’s E! special, “My Truth,” Minaj reveals her disappointment with Walters, accusing the “The View” co-host of choosing sides.
“I really felt good when I left yesterday and then I hear that Mariah went to Barbara Walters with some more fabrication that even the producers told her was never said,” Minaj explained on the show. “Telling Barbara I said something about a gun, which everybody knows that I’m way smarter than that. Literally my jaw was just hanging open and I was in shock. I’ve never in my life said anything regarding a gun.”
Minaj goes on to play the underdog role, charging Walters with siding with Carey over “a little black girl that raps.”
“Am I not good enough for you to get my side, because I’m a little black girl that raps?” Minaj continued. “Because if I was J. Lo, you would’ve called J. Lo’s camp. But are we not good enough for you Barbara? ‘Cause you wasn’t even there when I was on the show Barbara. So I guess I’m not good enough but I’m only good enough for you to tell people I’m ‘unpredictable,’ when you don’t f—–g know me?”
