Looks like Mariah Cary is not the only critic of Nicki Minaj’s role as a judge on “American Idol.”

T-Boz, the lead singer of one of the best-selling girls group of all time, TLC, had a few words about Minaj’s credentials and qualifications as a judge on a singing show. Here’s what she had to say:

“I don’t respect half [of] the people I’ve seen lately. How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her azz can’t even sing. Why is she there? And then…now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging? So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again.”

Ouch.

Was T-Boz being too harsh or was she just keeping it real?

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with T-Boz’s critique?

    Why should it matter!! These shows are based on personal opinion, not expert analysis. If this show were around at the peak of TLC’s careers, I bet they would also have had these same opportunities that Nicki Manag has. sounds like a bit of jealousy.

  • precious me

    Yawn! Let me know when someone gets shot!

  • real talk

    Nicki can carry a tune just like T-Boz who cant sing her damn self. So many people using her name to become relevant again. T-Boz has a tv show and album ,that noone will buy, coming out. And who ever said entertainers should be role models. Their job is to entertain and that is it.

    Yes TLC was at the top of thier game when the untimely death left T-Boz and Chili devestated and broke the group down, and yes she could sing, dance and rap, they were multi talented thier music did not die with Left Eye, thier resolve to hire someone in Left Eyes place did! that was also during a time when you paid to see an act they showed up, the dance floor was open, and you spoke of those performances for days, there was no twittering, or face booking your fans and cussing them out simply because you could or whatever the reason, no disrespecting the people who gave you the chances, and you knew what the heck the performer was saying! when an individual is asked your comments, thoughts or feelings, thats what they mean, not someone else’s reaction to yours thats why everyone gets thier own comment box then they can do all the bragging for thier person or story they choose., but its simple to rag on a person because they don’t agree with you!
