Last night, music fans across the world were shocked, outraged and entertained when TMZ released a video showing new “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj going off on her co-judge, Mariah Carey, during auditions in North Carolina.
The clip, which is nearly a minute long, fails to show who caused the argument as it begins during the middle of Minaj and Carey’s squabble. But, fans can almost clearly hear Minaj telling the room, “And if you’ve got a f–king problem, handle it. I told them I’m not f–king putting up with your f–king highness over there,” and Carey firing back that Minaj is a “3-year-old” and a “crazy b—h.”
Well, there’s no doubt that this feud is far from over, and it’s surely going to go down in the record books as one of the most high-profile diva battles ever. But they aren’t the first music queens to trade barbs. Check out some other famous diva wars below. –nicholas robinson
