Nicki Minaj is no longer bickering with fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey, but she definitely has some things to say to former judge Steven Tyler.
"Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven't seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet! I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go f*** yourself and worry about yourself babe."
Tyler made the initial comments in an interview with MTV:
"I know that they've got something going on on the judges' panel, [and] it shouldn't be that, it should be just the opposite: They should have something going on, which is called 'camaraderie... 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]. ... If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying."
On Canadian TV, Tyler has responded back:
"I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki," says Steven Tyler, but he reiterates that he's not sure how Minaj would have judged Bob Dylan if he went to audition on American Idol.
"I don't know how she got [racist] out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan."
"I'm the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist. ... I was just saying that if Bob Dylan came on the show, he would have been thrown off. Maybe I spoke out of turn. But a racist I'm not, Nicki."
