Even though Steven Tyler quit his post as an "American Idol" judge earlier this year, he still has much to say about the upcoming season and the judges who replaced him, notably rapper Nicki Minaj.

Responding to news that judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have been feuding on the "Idol" set, the Aerosmith rocker told MTV News that's not how the judges should act. "I know that they've got something going on on the judges' panel; it shouldn't be that, it should be the opposite. They should have something going on, which is called 'camaraderie,'" he said. "You just have to give your opinion. It wasn't hard for me, but I would imagine it's hard for some people, and they need a manager to say 'Shut the fuck up, and just give them your opinion.' These kids, they just got out of a car from the Midwest somewhere and they're in New York City, they're scared to death; you're not going to get the best [out of them]."
