Just when you thought it was over, the battle of the “American Idol” divas continues. On Wednesday night’s episode (Apr 17), which just so happened to be “divas” night (LOL), Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey went back and forth over a disagreement about contestant Kree Harrison’s performance of “She Talks to the Angels” by The Black Crowes.
Apparently, Nicki thought it was Kree’s best performance of the night, but the “Idol” hopeful didn’t get the same cosign from Mariah, who clearly did not agree with Nicki think it was her best performance.
After a bit of tussling back and forth Nicki continued on with her critique of the performance and told Mariah “OK, simmer down … sir” as Mariah calmly chuckled it off.
Hey, at least their speaking to each other now! Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
Nicki’s shade-filled comment towards Mariah Carey wasn’t the only notable part of the night though. As the episode aired, Nicki’s outfit went viral on Twitter because fans thought it was bit a “stripper-ish.”
Nicki’s red dress was short and tight, showing off every inch of her curves, and was topped off with a revealing cut-out bustline. And while Nicki Minaj isn’t exactly known for being “conservative,” whether verbally or visually, it seems like the outfit might have been a little too far out there for some viewers … though let’s be honest, it could have been a lot worse.
This was actually a more “sophisticated” look for Nicki, seeing as we’ve all probably seen the rapper in other outfits that were clearly more “revealing.” But, whatever Twitter. You know best.
